Itching to expand your fragrance wardrobe in a new way but want to think outside the bottle? These are the genius new ways you can take your perfume game to the next level.
Wear It as a Necklace
Never be without your signature scent again: Strangelove dreamed up a perfume necklace after creative director Helena Christensen learned that natural body heat can greatly enhance scent. The brand filled a 24-karat-gold-plated charm with its signature Melt My Heart scent (among others) and hung it on a 24-inch chain to create what just might be the perfect accessory.

Relive Your Childhood, but Make It Chic
The temporary tattoos we all grew up with just got a very chic upgrade thanks to Diptyque’s new scented stickers. Place these floral- or swan-shaped silhouettes on the insides of your wrists or at the base of your neck for a feminine look and a scent that lingers. Diptyque Perfumed Stickers ($74 for a pack of five, at Holt Renfrew, holtrenfrew.com)
Draw It On
Chanel’s new perfume pens are packaged just like the pastel crayons of your youth. They might provide a creative push to experiment with layering the Chance Eau Tendre or the classic Chanel Chance scent, and they’ll certainly look good tucked into your clutch.

Try a Scented Lippie
If you’re more of a makeup junkie than a fragrance devotee, look no further than luxury brand Kilian’s 10 new scented lipsticks—which include notes of marshmallow, honeysuckle, rose and orange blossom – just added to its cult-fave range of six reds. Each hue is ultra-saturated and moisturizing, so your look will last well into the night. Kilian Le Rouge Parfum lipstick ($70, at Holt Renfrew, holtrenfrew.com)
Give Your Signature Bag a Signature Scent
The iconic Fendi Baguette bag just got an aromatic upgrade: The brand is releasing a limited-edition version that is actually scented with a unisex fragrance that promises to stay in the leather for up to three years. FendiFrenesia Scented Baguette (price upon request, fendi.com)
