I'm liking the new plot themes in Mathematica 10, but finding that I can't override the options it sets. For example,

Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 10}, AxesLabel -> {x}, PlotTheme -> "Scientific"]

returns the right plot but without the axis label. How do I fix this?

The theme generates a framed plot. You need to use FrameLabel,e.g.

Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 3}, FrameLabel -> {Style[x, 30], Style[y, 30]}, 
 PlotTheme -> "Scientific"]

"Scientific" is a framed plot style therefore you need FrameLabel:

Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 10}, FrameLabel -> {x}, PlotTheme -> "Scientific"]
