The most beautiful blooms flowering and the sunshine sticking around for a little longer each day lends itself to us exposing a touch more skin… There’s no better way to celebrate the new season than with a signature scent switch up. Trade in your heavier winter scents that have been layered atop scarves and coats for a something a little lighter, fresher and more feminine.
Our favourite fragrances for Spring are distinctively floral – from light and fresh florals to sexy floral scents infused with notes of musk to perfumes that quite literally smell like the most beautiful bouquet of garden roses…
AERIN | Ikat Jasmine
It’s no secret that we love AERIN’s debut fragrance collection. The scents are not overly complicated – they’re simple and sophisticated and look as equally impressive on your vanity (think vintage jewel-like bottles topped with topped with gold gilded tumbled stones) as they smell on your skin. Ikat Jasmine exudes feminine freshness with an accord that fuses jasmine, honey-suckle, tuberose and sandalwood. It’s fresh and crisp with just a touch of sweetness.
AERIN | Rose de Grasse
The impossibly chic Aerin Lauder is definitely living up to her grandmother’s legacy, which is probably why we couldn’t include just one of her fragrances in our favourite Spring scents. Rose de Grasse is the latest addition to her line of fragrances, and it’s magic.
It’s a celebration of the most precious and luxurious roses. The scent captures the divine scent of some of the rarest of roses, such as Rose Centifolia (an incredible 100-petal rose only found in Grasse, France), but is still somehow ever so fresh and uplifting. If I had to describe this scent in a moment – imagine wearing a beautiful, flowy silk dress and gallivanting through a garden of fresh roses – you can feel the suns warmth yet the roses that surround you are still glistening with morning dew. Tell me you don’t want to capture that moment each morning when you apply your fragrance?
Narcisco Rodriguez | For Her EDP
This scent is inimitable; wearing it guarantees a multitude of complements. It has been one
of my personal favourites for years. It’s quite musky, but not at all Grandma or cupboard-musky – it’s elegant and sensual and features notes of musk, amber, white florals, patchouli, sandalwood fused with perhaps a little vanilla and citrus. While it is on the heavy side for Spring – there is something so special about it as it is so unique, it’s absolutely perfect to pair with the ultimate LBD for Spring evenings.
Elizabeth & James | NIRVANA White Perfume Oil
Fragrance oils are incredibly long lasting and infuse themselves into your skin. Elizabeth & James’ Nirvana White Perfume Oil is surprisingly skin loving, it nourishes and softens your skin whilst emulsifying with your own body chemistry. I also just love that this fragrance oil is the perfect size to pop in your handbag or clutch. The scent itself is feminine without being too girly, accords include peony (who doesn’t love peony!?) infused with notes of lily-of-the-valley (a fresh, clean floral scent) and sweet, white musk, to counteract any fruity or candy-like scent from the florals.
