7 Refreshing New Spring Fragrances That Just Smell So Darn Good
From one that makes you want to book a flight to the Maldives to one that will reinvigorate your mornings, we'll be taking more than a couple of whiffs of these fosho.| March 26, 2018
A perfume is just as important as a piece of jewellery because of how it affects the wearer’s mood and the people around them. It’s not just another smell and certainly not something that can be easily forgotten. Fragrances can trigger memories or lift one’s mood. For example, citrusy scents can reinvigorate and uplift, while delicate flowery scents can help to reduce anxiety and stress. Think aromatherapy, but one that lasts throughout the day. And one that people identify with you. It’s quite special.
As we move into spring and further into the year, we’re focusing on things that will bring a change for a better mood, like endorphin-inducing pieces or dresses to remind everyone that spring is here. Step out the door smelling fresh, flowery or sweet, with fragrances that can be worn during daybreak, in the garden or through summer on the most perfect beach holiday. To mark the start of seeing more sun and less rain – well, sun with not that much heat, ah humans, never pleased – these are the seven that we’ll be sniffing for awhile. The fact that they’re pretty doesn’t hurt either.
Louis Vuitton Le Jour Se Lève
Louis Vuitton’s Le Jour Se Lève translates from French into “daybreak”, signifying daybreak with citrusy notes from mandarin and flowery tones from osmanthus, jasmine and magnolia. Spray it on first thing in the morning and you’ll instantly feel reinvigorated and refreshed, which will slowly transform over the day into a muskier scent with hints of vanilla.
If you’re looking for something that combines the smell of adventure and femininity, this is one for you. With the freshness citrus fruits and the sweetness of a peach plum, these feminine smells are counterbalanced with the woody scent of oakmoss and sandalwood. Also, how gorgeous is this bottle?
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense
Intense indeed, for every note found in the Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum that was launched in 2001, the newest update has amplified the scent into something deeper and more powerful. The herbiness of patchouli and the cosiness of vanilla is mixed in with rose, jasmine and a special tonka bean from madagascar. It’s an addictive fragrance that speaks sultry, seductive and classy.
Gucci Bloom Acqua Di Fiori
The spring edition of the Gucci Bloom has a more vivid, energetic and vibrant feel to it, bringing out spicy-floral scents using tuberose, jasmine and Chinese honeysuckle. The refreshing vibe is combined with sandalwood and musk to bring out warmth and depth, almost like a spritz of energy.
Diptyque Fleur De Peau
Diptyque brings out the powdery scent of an iris flower in their newest fragrance, triggering visuals of lightweight and pillowy clouds in the sky. It’s got sweet notes from pears and plum, along with woody scents like musk and ambergris. The fragrance hits all the soft spots, with resemblance to the freshness of a laundry room.
Tom Ford Eau De Soleil Blanc
Tom Ford takes a crisp, illuminating and bright take on the original Soleil Blanc, putting forward an addictive scent that has all the refreshing goodness from citrusy fruits like orange, bergamot and citron. The fragrance is perfect for a beach getaway, with notes of coconut and amber over white floral scents. Just imagine the sun glistening on the clear blue water while you relax on a hammock. You see it, can you?
Miu Miu L’eau Rosée
The newest fragrance from Miu Miu is a soft and floral scent that exudes very little rose, contrary to what the name suggests. Instead, keynotes like Lily of the Valley and akigalawood are present, encapsulated with the sophistication of musk. It’s fresh, flowery and screams spring at the top of its non-existent lungs, all without being too predictable by choosing lily over rose.
