WHAT: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Music Box Set
WHY: It's officially spring, so why not take this blossoming idea a bit more literally? Viktor & Rolf's new Flowerbomb set--the parfum, body lotion and mini bottle of fragrance--is a stellar trio housed in a real music box (bien sûr!). The scent's mixture of sambac jasmine, orchid, freesia, rose notes will make you smell like a walking garden. If you're not into the sweet pink look, try the limited-edition parfum in a sparkling black glitter bottle for $135 instead.

WHAT: Temperley London's golden apple bag
WHY: If the old adage is true, this will certainly keep the fashion police far, far away. This quirky evening bag will be your go-to to add a touch of whimsy to the chic (but let's face it: not terribly exciting) little black dress you always grab for a night out. Just big enough for a lipstick, a credit card, and a cell phone--what else do you need?--with a wonderfully long chain strap, you'll surely be sporting this enough to keep the physicians at bay.

WHAT: LNA's 100% hemp short-sleeved deep crewneck tee
WHY: We know, we know--we're a little obsessed with LNA (this is Obsessions, after all!). But in the spirit of Earth week, we couldn't help but bring you the perfect tee brand's eco-chic contribution: a 100% hemp slouchy crew-neck. It comes in black and white, too...but really, wouldn't you rather be green?

WHAT: Gap close
WHY: Patrick Robinson's first signature fragrance is about to launch, and the scent hounds are already sniffing around. Fresh and floral, soft but still rich and sensual, close may be Robinson's premiere effort, but it's sure to become as classic as the brand itself--but with a twist. “Being sexy is part of [the Gap lifestyle], and that was the first criteria for this fragrance," Robinson said of the fragrance. We're faithful followers already.
