The buzzword is “fresh”.

It’s spring, and a host of fresh new fragrances have burst onto the scene. Whether you love fruity-scents, or prefer a sultrier musk, we all love smelling fantastic. Here’s a round-up of our favourite spring scents for every occasion!

1. Le Jour Se Lève, Louis Vuitton

Notes: Italian Mandarin, Blackcurrant accord, Sambac Jasmine, Incense and Musk accords, Peony accord, Osmanthus

Translating to “daybreak”, this fragrance is an exquisite olfactory voyage celebrating the first rays of the sun in the morning. The zesty Italian mandarin and blackcurrant opening notes will invigorate, while the floral notes of peony, apricot-tinged osmanthus, and Louis Vuitton signature Sambac jasmine bring serenity to your mornings. Sultry incense and musk accords dry-down will give you a boost of confidence that lasts throughout your day. Fun-fact: these bottles can be refilled at LV boutiques once you’re done with your bottle!

Who will love this: This bright citrus scent that dries down to a sensual musk is perfect for those who prefer something more refined.

2. La Femme Prada L’Eau, Prada

Notes: Mandarin Essence, Green Notes, Frangipani flower, Ylang-Ylang, Tuberose, Santal

This is a lovely tropical scent with distinct notes of honeyed Frangipani and Ylang-ylang, kept light and airy by zesty Mandarin essence and crisp Green notes. Base notes of golden Tuberose melt into warm Santal for a luscious, smooth finish. This combination of using time-honoured ingredients with surprising new compositions yields a fragrance that defies expectations and exalts one’s inherent sensuality.

Who will love this: This one is for anyone who wants a lushly tropical scent that will remind them of their best vacations.

3. Daisy Twinkle, Marc Jacobs

Notes: Wild berries, Violet flower, White woods

First up is Daisy Twinkle, a sunny and spirited reiteration of the highly acclaimed Daisy. Reminiscent of a joyful stroll through a bountiful woodland forest, Daisy Twinkle opens with a juicy burst of wild berries mixed with sweet violet flowers. The base notes of creamy white woods leave a warm and sensual dry-down.

Who will love this: This playful and airy fragrance is perfect for those who want to smell like the true scent of spring!

4. Amo Ferragamo, Salvatore Ferragamo

Notes: Italian Bitter accord, Blackcurrant, Rosemary, Jasmine Sambac, Mate absolute, Rhubarb, Tahitensis white vanilla, Ambrox, Sandalwood

An opening blend of blushing floral notes mixes with crisp aromatic notes and mouth-watering fruity shades that dries down to a creamy vanilla scent with a hint of a bitter edge, offering a new addictively boozy bitter addiction.

Who will love this: This feminine fragrance is best suited for people who love the scent of sweet vanilla with an edge.

Happy Spring!
