Spring Perfumes for Women
As we leave winter behind and see spring come from around the corner in to full view, the trend and scent of popular perfumes for women begins to shift to dictate the changing weather and changing attitudes both in a personal sense and in a fashion sense.
The winter months are generally seen in a perfume sense to evoke a feeling of warmth, oaky depth and home comfort, whereas when the playfulness of the spring months greets us, we see a swerve in the direction of more floral, lighter and less heavy scents that can be perfectly matched to the freshness of the season.
Of course, with each new year there is always a plethora of new perfumes on the market from which to choose, and whilst there may be a handful of new contenders for the crown, the argument that the tried and tested perfumes are still the best is very much valid to this day. When considering the details of the olfactory families, when it comes to the very best spring fragrances, a perfume that comes from either the floral family or the fruity family is generally the best option. If you are still pondering which scents to try and buy, here is a list of our very favourite scents for a delightful springtime feel to your everyday aesthetic:
Sì Eau de Parfum by Giorgio Armani
Giorgio Armani has long been the creator of sensational spring perfumes, and Sì Eau de Parfum is certainly no exception. Very much a product of the fruit olfactory family, Armani’s Sì Eau de Parfum provides an instant hit of everything spring-related, from its overpowering fruity and floral notes to its more subtle undertones that include citrus, wood and vanilla.
Floral perfumes are without a doubt the most popular choice of scent during the spring season, but the beauty of Armani’s product is that it offers a wider range of sensory experience than a typical seasonal perfume. The youthfulness that the combination of notes evokes makes the perfume a perfect choice for both casual day time wearing and more formal evening wearing, as the hints of fruit, floral and wood that are interspersed throughout make it an option for all occasions.
Roses De Chloé by Chloé
Chloé has long been a front-runner in the market of spring fragrances, and their signature scent Roses De Chloé is a perfect example of capturing the season in a single bottle. Of course, given the name, it is no surprise to hear that the scent of the rose takes centre stage here, but do not be mistaken in to thinking that Roses de Chloe is a one dimensional perfume; in fact, it is one of the most interestingly layered woman perfumes available.
With base notes of musk, amber and wood, the scent is very much rooted in earthy nature, but when middle and top notes of interesting combinations such as blackcurrant, apple, magnolia, lemon, litchi, bergamot and tarragon are incorporated, the perfume takes on an entirely fresher sensation on the nose, reminding the wearer of nothing but a perfectly fruity and floral April afternoon. The particular lightness of Roses de Chloé makes it a perfect choice for daytime wearing.
Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Toilette by Chanel
If you are the kind of person who prefers your woman’s fragrances to be of the fruity variety rather than the floral, than Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Toilette is the perfect choice for you. This delightfully seasonal perfume boasts an overwhelming citrus scent, but in true keeping with the multi layered nature of woman perfumes in springtime, Coco Mademoiselle also benefits greatly from middle and top notes that include hits of rose, Italian jasmine, litchi, bergamot, patchouli, vanilla, white musk and the exciting Tahitian vetiver.
Because of its super fruity nature, many would recommend the fragrance as a day time option only, but the subtle hints of musk and patchouli also make it a perfectly acceptable choice for more formal evening occasions. The beauty of spring-time woman perfumes is that the inherent freshness of the season allows for a little more playfulness in the evening.
Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs
Continuing with the fruity theme of spring fragrances, Daisy Eau So Fresh by the ever-reliable Marc Jacobs is another perfume that immediately brings all the positives of the season to mind with just a single drop. Its name clearly puts it in the floral perfumes family. Base notes of plum, cedar and musk give the scent a certain pleasing depth, but the overwhelming middle and top notes of violet, jasmine, apple blossom, grapefruit, pear and raspberry ensure that Daisy Eau So Fresh retains a strong hit of pure springtime from the moment you spray it on to the end of your day.
The fragrance is coming up to five years old now having been released in 2011, and the fact that is still continuing to make top five and top ten lists is testament to the quality of the product. Without a doubt one of the best spring perfumes available in today’s market.
L’Eau Jolie by Lolita Lempicka
A relatively recent addition to the pantheon of must-have springtime woman fragrances, L’Eau Jolie by Lolita Lempicka not only comes in a delightfully seasonal looking bottle, but it also relies very much on the classic notes and inspirations of the season to create a fragrance that couldn’t be more indicative of the spring months if it tried. Base notes of cedar and musk give the perfume that addictive, earthy quality that all exceptional fragrances need to have, and this earthy base is complemented by middle and top notes including neroli, peach blossom, pear and blackcurrant.
Aside from its impressive range of notes, L’Eau Jolie has also been lauded for its impressive longevity, meaning that not only does it capture the essence of spring but it will also prove to be a pleasingly cost effective choice. Definitely not a perfume to be missed this season.
