Spring Scents: 8 of the Best Perfumes

Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to pack away those heavy winter scents and refresh your perfume collection with something lighter. When it comes to perfume it’s really easy to reach for a tried and trusted signature scent time and time again, but I love nothing more than being introduced to new fragrances, especially by industry friends. Here are a few new favourites (and a couple of classics) for spring…

Whether or not the weather is telling us so, spring is decidedly in the air (when it comes to the fashion and beauty worlds, at least!). With this in mind, now is a great time to pack away those heavy, intoxicating winter perfumes and pull out some fresh new fragrances. There are plenty of new scents on the market to inspire you, and here are a few of my favourites.

8 of the Best Perfumes for Spring

  1. Acqua di Parma Colonia Pura

    The perfect unisex fragrance, this fresh floral is a great choice for spring, with notes of bergamot, narcissus and white musk, plus a hint of sweet, juicy orange.

  2. Byredo Biblioteque

    The newest fragrance by Byredo, this is a great choice if you don’t want to give up your rich, heady perfumes just because it’s spring. Forget feminine fruity florals and opt for this leather-inspired fragrance (an eau de parfum version of the brand’s most popular candle) with notes of peach, plum, peony, leather and vanilla.

  3. Jo Malone London English Fields Collection

    I always prefer perfumes that smell like real ingredients rather than chemicals, which is why I love Jo Malone London’s fragrances. The five new scents in their latest limited edition are inspired by the fresh fragrances of the English countryside, absolutely perfect for spring. But hurry; they’re selling out fast.

  4. Commodity Rain Eau de Parfum

    Because spring showers are a certainty; why not get in the spirit with this refreshing fragrance that’s like a walk in the rain. Minus the umbrella.

  5. Glossier You

    Have you read my post introducing you to my favourite picks from the Glossier brand? The signature perfume from the beauty brand of the moment is a clean, warm scent that is subtle enough to wear at any time of year. I have to be careful not to wear anything too overpowering since I work so closely to clients, and this is a great option.

  6. Acqua di Colonia Melograno

    One of my favourites to pick up while state-side, especially at this time of year; this classic eau de cologne is a bouquet of sweet floral oriental notes with pomegranate at its heart.

  7. Perfumer H Rain Cloud

    If you can get hold of a bottle, Rain Cloud by Perfumer H (by Lyn Harris) is the perfect spring/summer fragrance. The summer 2016 edition from bespoke fragrance brand Perfumer H, I don’t let my bottle out of my sight! With yland ylang, vetiver, vanilla bourbon and orange flower, it really does smell like a sweet, fresh rain cloud.

  8. My Burberry Blush Eau de Parfum

    Splash on some instant spring sun with My Burberry Blush, one of my favourites – it’s a light fruity floral that will suit everyone (The pretty pink bottle is an instant dressing table pick-me-up, too).
