It’s time to wake up and smell the roses…and the irises…and the lilies…and pretty much every other flower. You are probably working on updating your wardrobe for spring, as well as your makeup bag. You should also be doing the same thing with your fragrances. The musky, heavy fragrances of winter now feel a bit out of place. It’s time to embrace florals and maybe a bit of rain too. A floral fragrance for spring is a classic. It’s fresh, it’s uplifting and even if you still do not see any real flowers emerging from the garden, you can still experience the scent.
Here are 13 floral perfumes that smell even better than a garden:
Dolce & Gabbana has another floral fragrance in another stunning bottle. The scent is meant to capture rose petals in bloom. It contains notes of African dog Rose (duh) and Turkish Rose absolute, as well as papaya flower and white water lily.
One spritz of this scent and you will be, well, happy. The limited-edition fragrance celebrates a world in bloom. Don’t you feel a bit more cheerful just looking at the bottle?
There’s no guessing whether flowers are involved here. This scent is a favorite among many people thanks to the explosion of floral notes. It features jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid and ballerina freesia bloom on a base of patchouli. One whiff is like smelling a bouquet.
Demeter has some unique scents. Cannabis, anyone? However, the brand also has some traditional ones. The Jasmine Cologne now comes in this limited-edition bottle. Don’t worry, it still has the same sweet, exotic smell.
Of course Miu Miu would not disappoint with its first foray into perfume. Like the brand’s clothes, the scent is all about unexpected combinations. It is a floral scent thanks to the notes of lily of the valley, however, it contrasted with a earthy base of wood and pepper of akigalawood, an extract of patchouli.
