Alas, money can’t buy love. But it can buy a sumptuously fragranced Fendi handbag—a close second, to be sure. In a new collaboration, [perfumer Francis] Kurkdjian has teamed up with the storied Roman luxury house and its creative director, Silvia Venturini Fendi, to infuse the label's famed Baguette (arguably the first true It Bag) with a new scent, FendiFrenesia.

A back-to-school lemming: scented gummy bear highlighters. (C'mon, you know you need these.) "These tiny adorable bears are tiny adorable highlighters.

A frivolous lemming for Frivolous Friday: the Rosebud Gorjuss Doll from Santoro. And yes, she smells. "Add to your Santoro Gorjuss collection with this Rosebud doll. Wearing an adorable dress with a woven bag, she has roses entwined in her hair and is delicately scented with rose and honeysuckle. When playtime is over, she looks just as pretty up on the shelf– proudly display Rosebud rather than confining her to the toy box." £70 at Harrods.
