As the seasons change, it’s not just my wardrobe choices (hello, bare leg weather – I’ve missed ya!) and make-up routine that get a bit of a shake up. I also find myself reaching for different fragrances.
Spring scents that are fresh, fruity and floral are my absolute jam right now, and I’ve got three that I’m reaching for each day. And, there’s one perfect for every budget. You can thank me later.
Save: Summer Sun by NEXT
I know, a perfume from a high-street brand but hear me out. This baby is a holiday in a bottle. There are notes of coconut and exotic flowers which leaves your skin smelling well, like you’re sunning yourself somewhere fancy. It’s perfect for sunny days or a lil pick-me-up when it’s gloomy. I can’t wait to wear this when I go away next month.
Spend: Olympea by Paco Rabanne
So I’m cheating a bit with this one as it’s what you might call my signature scent. I pretty much wear it all year ’round, but find myself reaching for it pretty much every day in the spring as it’s so light and fresh. Olympea has – according to the ‘web – notes of Green Mandarin, Ginger Lily, Jasmine, and Salted Vanilla with base notes of Sandalwood. Basically, it’s mythical and smells amaze. My perfect spring perfume.
Splurge: Mimosa and Cardamom by Jo Malone
Oh boy oh boy. If I had to pick a favourite scene EVER, it’d be Jo Malone’s Mimosa and Cardamom. The smoothness of the mimosa, the spice of the cardamom, the hint of rose…what’s not to love? This baby lasts all day and just smells heavenly. If you’re after a special occasion fragrance this spring – or just fancy treating ‘yo self – I’d recommend this one!
