Most Fashionable Fragrances for Spring
Brought to you by

Winter is nearly over and the warm spring days are set to return. With the start of a new season comes the opening of our spring wardrobes and of course a change on our fragrance choices. We want begin to opt for lighter, fresher fragrances and we move away from our heavy winter scents. So to help you choose the ultimate fragrance for this spring, here is your one stop guide to those signature spring time scents.

The Floral

Spring is all about new life and your perfume doesn’t have to be any different. Choosing a perfume is a very personal experience, but for any lovers of sweet or musky floral scents then look no further than Nina Ricci. Nina is the signature scent released originally by this fabulous designer back in the 60’s, you can grab this beauty at the perfume clearance centre or similar. It has had been re-mastered in a modern way to produce a refreshing and crisp floral fragrance.
Unusually for a floral fragrance, the top notes to this scent are derived from citrus fruits; you will get the hint of lemon and lime straight away. Underneath this lies a mixture of decadent Moonflower, peony and apple, giving the scent depth. All finished off with Cedarwood, musk and Applewood, creating a rich finish offering sunshine to your day.

The Fruity

We all know the designer powerhouses love to display their latest perfume offerings when they release their next season clothing lines, so which is the best this spring – well look no further than Lanvin. The latest fragrance to offer us a delicate fruit experience is Lanvin Me. This is one perfume that will make you smell good enough to eat. The top notes bring about that freshness that we all crave on a warm springs day, offering delicate floral hints against the backdrop of blueberries = yummy. Next you will be hit with liquorice offering some depth to the scent, unfortunately that is all we know until the official release, but blueberry, liquorice and sweet floral’s has us sold.

The Musk

Warm spring nights lead into hot summer’s days and we need a fragrance to match this. Stella McCartney is one of those designers that brings us feminine scents with more masculine ingredients and none more so than her newest offering LILLY. This is a bold fragrance that is perfect for hazy evenings and poolside cocktails. It offers us full bodied warmth and the chance to have a little fun with the masculine/feminine lines of fashion.
You will find the top notes to bring in the sweet floral fun to this scent, blending Lilly of the Valley with Truffle. All of this is wrapped in a blanket of Oak Moss, bringing the heat to the scent, a beautiful combination creating a very sensual smell.
