Scents for me have always been instant mood lifters; In fact, I have a tiny fragrance collection that comforts me and brings back amazing memories. The thing that really drives me to splurge on new perfumes though: the beginning of a new season. While winters call for warm, woody scents, beautiful spring fragrances are characterized by fresh fruity and floral notes; and just like that scents can help us transition into a new season oh-so effortlessly. Now that I am so ready to move on from the past to the new year, there are quite a few fragrances that I have my eyes on this spring—including the Gucci Bloom Acqua Di Fiori Eau De Toilette and the Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Floral Eau De Parfum. Scroll down for the complete roundup.
Not only does this vintage powder pink bottle look really Spring-y, but it also has a rich scent inside. Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas, Gucci Bloom is created to unfold like its name— capturing the rich scent of a thriving garden filled with an abundance of flowers. The addition of green galbanum and dainty cassis buds accentuates the soft dewy freshness of the early petal and a light, aquatic composition celebrates the joyful energy of women. A garden party, while you drink your second Negroni; you get the drift...
Flowers have never felt so sensual. The J’adore flowers released in a bouquet that infinitely diffuses their scent: centifolia rose, jasmine sambac, ylang-ylang and grasse tuberose are refined by the woody accents of a creamy sandalwood. It's a balance that feels super springlike, yet wearable all year round. I recommend it for a dinner date on a warm, breezy Spring evening.
Transport yourself to Café de Flore in Paris with this new sparkling fragrance from Yves Saint Laurent. A floral interpretation of the classic Mon Paris Signature: Red berries and pear immediately exude sensuality and femininity; the exotic white datura flower (the soul of the fragrance), embodies desire and allure. Oh-so addictive.
No Spring fragrance is complete without the Hermès Twilly D'Hermès Eau Poivrée Eau De Parfum. However what sets it apart from the rest? The vibrant notes of pink peppercorn, the freshness of tender rose and the captivating elegance of patchouli that unveils the peppery spirit of the Hermès girls. Spicy, floral, woody—a truly wearable perfume that will take you from day to night quite effortlessly.
BVLGARI’s Rose Goldea Blossom Delight Eau De Parfum’s Violet leaf, Rose petal infusion, Lily, White Musk and Jasmine notes feel optimistic and encouraging—plus, provides something of a scent soundtrack as you confidently stroll down the street on a spring day. I would buy this only for the bottle though.
Why should girls have all the fun? Spring fragrances for men have evolved and how. Case in point: the Davidoff Cool Water Eau De Toilette for Men provides intense freshness with peppermint and lavender as top notes; oh, and it’s concocted with spicy coriander, jasmine, oak moss and geranium that form the heart note and amber and musk as the base note. Love.
Another fragrance for men that will strike all the right chords. Featuring crisp rosemary, watermelon, violet, watery accord, musk and moss, the Burberry Brit Splash Eau de Toilette is a bright aquatic fragrance that is refreshing and invigorating; plus, the amalgamation of all the notes makes it uber sophisticated, but just as fun.
