The flowers bloom. The sun shines longer. Everything just seems brighter and more colourful, making it hard for almost everyone – even us tropical city dwellers – to feel sad and sedentary when spring arrives with all the vibrant changes that come with it every year. Well, except maybe the hotter weather.
Springtime also brings with it several exciting new fragrances that range from lightweight, fresh, and citrus notes to bold florals. Refreshing, invigorating and — most importantly — long-lasting enough to take you through the day, here are 5 lovely scents you must have this season.
1. Dior J’dore In Joy
Dior’s J’dore In Joy is an uplifting, fruity scent with notes of white flowers such as sumbac jasmine, neroli, tuberouse, and ylang-ylang from Grasse, with an accord of ripe peaches as its base.
2. Miu Miu L’eau Bleue
A follow-up to Miu Miu’s fragrance first released in 2015, L’eau Bleue smells as good as it looks. Presented in one of the prettiest bottles this season, a whiff of L’eau Bleue is packed with hints of white florals and fresh greenery, making it a light and bright scent ideal for everyday use.
3. Lancome’s La Vie Est Belle Bouquet de Printemps
A limited edition fragrance from Lancome, La Vie Est Belle Bouquet de Printemps is a floral scent imbued with a mix of jasmine sambac, orange blossom, and bergamot essence, alongside a hint of fine fruit delicacies.
4. Hermes 24, Fauburg
This new Hermes fragrance contains a divine combination of warm floral and citrus notes with a bare hint of spice and orange flower at the forefront. It’s rich, full, and welcoming without being overpowering. No wonder it used to be one of the late Princess Diana’s favourite scents.
5. Georgio Armani Code Cashmere for Her
Armani Code Cashmere is the most intense scent from the entire Georgio Armani Code collection. It teases the olfactory senses with the gentleness of cashmere and orange blossom essence, accentuated by notes of jasmine and iris.
