It’s been a long, cold winter, but finally spring has arrived (despite the low temperatures trying to convince us otherwise). This means that we can do away with the heavy, heady scents of winter and move on to fresher fragrances.


Not sure what perfume you are going to wear? We’ve got options! Six of them, to be exact. And they are going to make you stand out for all the right reasons this season.

1. Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Garden EDP

The bottle alone is enough to let you know that this is the perfect floral scent to pair with warmer weather. With notes of magnolia, neroli and frangipani, it doesn’t get more like a spring garden than this.

2. Burberry My Burberry EDP

It might be a brand new season but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be experiencing a shower or two. This scent was created to be as classic as a trench coat, with floral notes that invoke the luxury and sophistication of urban life.

3. Byredo Inflorescence EDP

This beloved international brand is definitely worth the hype, and this scent in particular ticks all the springtime boxes. It contains notes of rose, jasmine and lily-of-the-valley and smells like a fresh, fragrant bouquet of flowers.

4. Gucci Bloom EDP

You will be hard-pressed to find a fragrance more authentic than this. It has both green and floral notes, such as orange, jasmine and honeysuckle, making it sunny and bright but not cloyingly sweet. We approve!

5. Le Labo Fleur D’Oranger 27 EDP

Another brand from abroad that we can’t get enough of is Le Labo, which has a massive cult following. With bold notes of citrus and orange blossom and a musk undertone, you can’t go wrong with a spritz of this.

6. Jo Malone Jasmine Sambac & Marigold Cologne Intense

Just because the weather is warming up doesn’t mean you have to ditch the intense scents altogether. It just means investing in some that have heavy floral notes, like this gem from the house of Jo Malone.
