My Favorite Fragrances This Spring

Spring has always provided an opportune moment to rearrange regular routines for a clean and fresh start. Whether you spruce up your interiors with a few new key pieces, revamping your dress wardrobe, or adding some lighter floral-centered fragrances to your vanity; changing up your typical routine is the perfect way to start the new season with a clean slate.

For me, the latter has always been something I sincerely look forward to at the end of the winter season. I stereotypically use headier, warmer scents with notes of tobacco, vanilla and musk in the colder months and make the swap to brighter and more wearable fragrances come spring. I've rounded up some of my current favorites for you to explore, below.
Jo Malone London Green Wheat & Meadowsweet Cologne - This is a fresh and lively fragrance with crisp notes of green wheat and white notes of meadowsweet. I love the initial freshness of this perfume, and that once it settles, it becomes powdery and soft. This is a great choice for those who really like a clean, crisp floral scent that lays closer to the skin.

Jo Malone London Oat & Cornflower Cologne - This scent is the absolute dream for spring. It offers a creamy sandalwood note that's brightened by blue cornflowers and and grounded with a base of green vetiver. I absolutely love how unique it is; I've really never smelled anything quite like it. If only this weren't limited edition I think it would become my signature, year-round scent.

Jo Malone London Honey & Crocus Cologne - A warm honey note and bright crocus come together with a hint of herbal lavender in this springtime release from Jo Malone. I love how the brand was able to create something so fresh, yet comforting at the same time; the note of honey seems almost as if it had sat in the spring sun all day. Trust me, you need to smell this for yourself.

Diptyque L'Ombre Dans L'eau - This is one of those fragrances I had never given a second glance, because I had heard it was reminiscent of the brand's cult-favorite candle, Baies. I never could imagine that as a perfume, because I pictured it to be overpowering; but I was so wrong. This scent is the original blend of fruity, green, and floral notes, and it does this combination in the best way. It's crisp with green leaves, juicy with berries, and feminine with rose all at the same time. I love that I can smell it close to the skin all day long.

Creed Fleurs de Gardenia - This delicate, graceful floral is the springtime ideal, complete with gardenia, roses, lavender, peonies, and pinkberries. I love that this stays true to the feminine, and seasonally appropriate floral bouquet, yet maintains a softer side that doesn't demand too much attention. 

Jo Loves Red Truffle 21 - Perfect for throwing in my handbag when on-the-go, this fig-centric scent is right up my street. It strikes the perfect balance between warming and fresh thanks to the addition of spicy pine notes, earthy truffle notes, and fresh hints of citrus. I love that it's unexpected, and still manages to bring that sexy factor a fragrance that's wearable throughout the warmer months.

Kilian Good Girl Gone Bad - This is a recent discovery for me, and I have quickly fallen for this floral that boasts both warm fruits and heady florals. With notes of apricot, osmanthus, orange blossom, rose, tuberose, and jasmine, this scent is meant to portray an uninhibited woman who finds herself in the garden of good and evil. It's perfect for spring nights out.
