For perfumer Jo Malone, 37, life is a bouquet of scents. They are her memories of people, places and emotions. When she thinks of her father--Eau Savage by Christian Dior, Vetiver by Guerlain and leather (from the seats of a Jaguar he won in a card game). The glamorous, red-lipped Countess Lubbatti, whom she idolized as a child, comes to mind with a whiff of pure sandalwood. The odor of rain-soaked pine needles recalls a creative funk, the birth of her first child 12 weeks ago . . .

Southern California weather doesn't change too drastically from winter to spring and there's no specially branded latte being served at Starbucks to nudge us into the next season, but we can count on lighter fragrances to bring on the feeling of bright sunshine, blue skies and longer days. Spring's newest fragrance releases are whisper soft but upbeat and bright with citrus, fruit, aquatic and floral notes — qualities many women look for when adding a new scent to their fragrance wardrobes.

Once, the greatest part of Valentine's Day was receiving a Looney Tunes card from a classmate that had perforated edges and said "You're Tweet!" Cheap, sweet and chosen to evoke a smile, it was casual. Fun. The opposite of a cheesy, dutiful box of chocolates or an embarrassing clutch of ill-chosen lingerie -- the grown-up stuff that came later. The best gifts, on Valentine's Day as always, are the ones that say, in a relaxed way, "I really know what you like."

Anyone who's bitten into a ripe apricot, peach or plum understands the juicy scents of summer. But today's perfumers have created fragrances that make fruity essences available all year long. Fancy an olfactory plate of ripe figs? L'Artisan's Figuier Extreme and Ava Luxe's Figue de Sucre showcase the creamy sweetness of the fruit, while Heeley's Eau de Figuier and L'Artisan's Premier Figuier evoke the entire tree, complete with green leaves, milky white secretions and twiggy branches.

In Southern California, "seasons" are more loosely defined than in other parts of the country, but many of us still crave a change in style, scenery and mind-set once spring rolls around. A new scent can signal the onset of a new season, and beauty counters are more than ready to fulfill any yearnings for change. One of the easiest ways to achieve these changes is through scent, and with a new round of fragrances hitting beauty counters now, dabbing these behind your ear could kick-start your spring and be that subtle shift you're searching for. Finding a spring fragrance doesn't mean having to douse yourself in a garden full of freesia or lily of the valley.

'Rose' perfume can smell green, spicy, powdery, sparkly, fruity or more. The ubiquity of roses in early to mid-February can be overwhelming (their prices, shocking), but their association with love and romance - and perfume - is hardly a modern convention. Roses are referenced in Greek and Roman mythology, and humans have distilled fragrant oils from rose petals for millennia. Rosewater colognes were popular with both sexes in the 19th century. But it's only recently that scientists discovered that essential rose oil contains more than 400 individual components.

ELLEN'S on line 1, Oscar talent coordinator Danette Herman's just leaving and everywhere you look, there's a picture of Oscar or Spider-Man. The battle plan for the logistics of this year's Academy Awards show emerged from the office of producer Laura Ziskin, right on Main Street in the heart of the Sony Pictures lot. With its overstuffed furniture, indirect lighting and Jo Malone candles, it is clearly a home away from home.

With products such as California Kissin' lip gloss and Some Kind-a Gorgeous foundation, it's easy to see why girls turn to Benefit when they want to groom. Now those who swear by the San Francisco line of bath and body goodies can rejoice that they have a whole store to call their own. Started by twins Jean and Jane Ford over three decades ago, Benefit has amassed a cult-like following by offering no-nonsense, high-glamour products that also correct some of beauty's worst predicaments.

Once upon a time - and by that we mean just a few months ago - it was the old-school horror genre that was being dusted off and repurposed into 21st century popular culture replete with wizards, werewolves, zombies and the hollow-cheeked vampires of the vanities. Today it's not horror stories but fairy tales seizing the collective imagination. For evidence, one need look no further than the fall TV schedule, where NBC rolled out "Grimm" (recasting fairy tales as crime procedurals)

Have you been feeling a little down lately? Maybe it's the weather. The rainy days we've had this winter just might touch off a mild case of seasonal affective disorder, a type of depression that experts say generally appears during late fall or early winter, when sunshine is scarce. For serious cases, treatment includes light therapy, medications and psychotherapy. But for those of us who are just having a gloomy day or two, there are beauty products that claim to elevate mood.
