9 Uplifting Spring Perfumes To Add To Your Collection

Florals (for spring) and so much more.

There’s something to be said about the transformative power of spring. Renewing us with a vigour we’d forgotten amid winter’s cruel grip (perhaps a tad dramatic, but it’s 2021, so we’re allowed), it’s a season that’s always full of promise. And, if you’re anything like us, you’re of the mind that a new season deserves a new scent.

After all, while the heavy, woody fragrances overflowing with spice notes were ideal for the colder months, spring is a time that calls for more playful perfumes. 

Although florals (groundbreaking) are certainly appropriate for a season associated with blossoming buds, there are many gorgeous perfumes from other fragrance families worthy of your collection.

Unfolding like a meandering stroll through a garden in bloom, the scent features delicate opening notes of pear, bergamot and blackcurrant, before unveiling heart notes of lily of the valley, royal jasmine and Damask rose and a woody-vanilla base.
