Hello all and Happy Spring!
I don’t know about you, but springtime always makes me think of fields filled with flowers, cherry blossom trees in bloom, garden strolls, and fresh air. I love spending time outside after being cooped up all winter long and embrace any opportunity to be around nature’s beauty!
That being said, I also start gravitating toward fresher, flowery scents this time of year. Basically, I not only change wardrobes with the season, but also switch up my fragrances. It helps me set the mood for the day and seasonally mixing things up brings me joy! I always love to test out new scents, but today I’ll be sharing my top florals I rotate between during the warmer months.
Marc Jacobs Daisy – this eau de toilette is one I’ve been using since high school and is a classic for a reason! The light, airy scent of daisies and jasmine mixed with strawberry is the perfect spring scent without being too fruity and sweet. It also comes in a roller-ball option, which is perfect for travel and is more cost-effective. (I also own the natural oils version from Nantucket Perfume Co. if you’re looking for a more affordable natural option of the scent!)
Chanel’s Gabrielle – a beautiful bouquet of jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom, and tuberose results in a feminine floral fragrance. I got this perfume when I was in Paris last fall and was originally wary of a Chanel fragrance that might be too old or musky. After testing it out, I was sold because this scent is young and fresh!
L’Occitane’s Arlésienne – another light spring scent, but this one includes rose, violet, and saffron. I love this as a more grounded floral that doesn’t feel heavy or overpowering. I actually discovered this perfume by chance because I loved the hand cream version so much! (I’m also a fan of the Néroli & Orchidée hand cream, so I’ll probably end up adding the eau de toilette version to my collection soon!)
Annick Goutal’s Un Matin D’Orage – notes of Magnolia, Tuberose, Myrrh, and Vanilla grace this scent and blend into a wonderfully uplifting floral. I love this scent for my weekend excursions around the city as it gives me a sense of freedom and adventure!
Twilly d’Hermès – this is definitely one of the stronger and spicier florals in my collection – it’s not fruity or super flowery. This eau de parfum contains sandalwood mixed with striking ginger and sensual tuberose. I love this scent for work because it’s not too light and breezy – it’s worth checking out if you’re not someone who’s normally into floral scents!
Nantucket Perfume Co.’s Nantucket Celebration Pure Perfume – this scent features champagne combined with white peonies, jasmine, violet, soft suede, and juicy apples. This is my favorite perfume for going out in the spring and summer because it’s lively and carries that bubbly hint of champagne that’s perfect for an outdoor bar or rooftop patio! Also, these natural oils last longer on my skin if I’m staying out late and don’t contain alcohol, which is great for sensitive skin. These oils are also the most affordable and last an incredibly long time!
Nantucket Perfume Co’s Waterlily Pure Perfume – I don’t know how, but this perfume perfectly captures the delicate scent of a waterlily on a warm spring day. It is a simple and elegant scent perfect for people who don’t want a lot of complex notes. Same as above, the scent lasts incredibly long, is alcohol free, and super affordable!
Nantucket Perfume Co’s Wildflower Pure Perfume – inspired by a bike ride through a New England meadow, this fragrance contains patchouli, bergamot, cedarwood, and fresh Nantucket wildflowers topped with a hint of fruity ripeness. (If you can’t tell, I’m a huge fan of natural oils as perfumes!)
I hope this offers you some options if you’re looking for a new fragrance with the changing seasons or inspires you to switch things up and experiment with your signature scents! I’ve also showcased my favorite Fall Scents in this post if you’re looking for fragrances in a different kind of scent profile.
