Chalk it up to body chemistry or just plain bad luck, but pretty much every fragrance I try — and trust me, I’ve tried everything from $5 essential oils to $200+ designer perfumes — fades away on me in a matter of minutes. However, I’ve finally found a scent that actually lasts: Jimmy Choo Fever Eau de Parfum ($62; macys.com).

You probably know the name from your shoe shopping endeavors, but the brand behind some of Carrie Bradshaw’s most-beloved stilettos has an extensive fragrance portfolio. Fever is by far its boldest scent. In perfume-person language, you’d call it a fruity gourmand, but in real-world terms I’d say it smells like a fresh pitcher of spicy sangria.
