How To Smell Like Spring

Spring is most definitely one of my most favourite seasons. Perhaps its because I’m a spring baby, but the breeze, occasional sun rays and blooming flowers just make me smile instantly. Personally I find that fragrances are such mood enhancers, and this particular selection are my go-to’s during spring.

My all-time favourite scent has been Marc Jacobs Daisy for many years. There’s just nothing bad to say about this scent —it’s fresh, floral, feminine and incredibly delicate. Marc Jacobs scents just always hit the nail right on the spot for me, always. The top notes are Strawberry, Violet Leaves and Ruby Red Grapefruit and to balance out the sweet scents, its blended with Gardenia, Violet Petals, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Vanilla and White Woods.

For those who are into the sweet and floral scents, Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier is your pick. Personally I cannot stand sweet scents as most of the time they smell very chemically, but this is just the best of both worlds. Whereas fig scents can sometimes be a bit heavy or ‘manly’ due to the spices, Fleur de Figuier is ideal the spring/summer alternative with Mandarin, Grapefruit and Cumin as top notes. Its middle notes are fig leaf and figs, with base notes as fig nectar, cedar and musk, making it a foolproof blend for a refreshing, feminine summer scent. Also, you don’t have to be a fig lover to embrace this scent —my mum can’t stand Philosophykos (I know, right?!) and she loved Fleur de Figuier on me.

DKNY Pure is something I discovered when I was in high school and kinda forgot about over the years. I’d personally describe this as a snuggly, comforting and calming scent. Its top note is vanilla, which I normally wouldn’t go for, but blended with jasmine, freesia, orchid, Bulgarian rose, white amber and sandalwood harmonises the scent. It’s a very elegant and simple scent and definitely something I reach out to when it’s a rainy and depressing morning. Maybe not too unimportant: whenever I wear this I receive compliments that I smell so good —mainly from males. Score!
