Change of season means a change of wardrobe, skin routine, maybe a new haircut but also let’s not forget to change our perfume. Align it with the light and breezy days ahead with our top choices.
Floral fragrances are the most obvious choice for spring, but their versions vary.
Most floral scents will be romantic and feminine, but depending on the ingredients they can be:
- soft (subtle whiffs and powdery notes)
- fresh (like fresh-cut flowers) or
- intense (with hints of orange blossom and sweet spices).
So don’t be afraid that you are going to smell over the top girly. Floral scents are the biggest category in perfumes and surely you can find something that fits your personality.
These are some guidelines among different flowers and our favorite picks for this spring.
- Rose is the queen of spring flowers, in all its variations. Combined with musk can be sheer and when paired with dark woods, a rose is very sexy.
- Iris and violet both have an elegantly restrained softness. If you want to make sure it isn’t over the top girly scent, go for it.
- Pure, bold floral scent is mostly made of white flowers. If you are drawn to elegant and feminine, the gamut from jasmine and gardenia to lilies will sure to have something for you.
- For the more fresh-minded, keep it light with a hint of lavender or a fresh, herbal top note.
