Known in many areas for its milder temperatures, increased sunshine, and overall mood-boosting weather, spring is a great season to start something new while getting excited that summer is just around the corner.
To help you kick off that spring feeling (and smelling) fresh, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite fresh spring fragrances.
Byredo Sundaze Eau de Parfum
One of the newest scents in the Byredo lineup, this fragrance feels like a dose of sunshine for your senses. Made in France with a perfect mix of floral and citrusy notes, it has sunny top notes of mandarin and California lemon that fade to warm, white musk. Sundaze has the pick-me-up effect of citrus and romantic vibes of flowers that make it perfect for the new season ahead.
Love Memoir Fragrance Set by Iman Beauty
Iman Beauty’s Love Memoir is a sensual and subtle perfume with top notes of bergamot, coconut and blackcurrant, middle notes of rose, jasmine and orris, and vanilla, patchouli, and vetiver base. With just a hint of a musky, masculine scent at the bottom, Love Memoir is a great alternative to traditional citrus or floral perfume for spring.
Ouai Dean Street Eau de Parfum
Known for their incredible-smelling haircare, it’s almost as though Ouai made this one specifically for spring — a time where fresh but cozy vibes are everything and it just feels like excitement is in the air. The Dean Street EDP is an ode to Dean Street — one of the brand’s favorite places in central London — and begins with citrus notes that blend with apricot, rose, and linden blossom. There are also amber and musk undertones that make it perfect for the winter-is-over but summer-isn’t-here-yet in between.
Jo Malone London Frangipani Flower Cologne
Warm, sweet, and floral, Frangipani Flower by Jo Malone is blended with jasmine, sandalwood, and lemon for a floral yet brisk fragrance with citrus kick. Versatile enough for daytime errands or evening date nights, this is a great go-to spring fragrance that never gets old.
Brown Girl Jane Lamu Joy Eau De Parfum
Part of the Brown Girl Jane Wanderlust Collection, this fragrance captures the intoxicating spirit of the beaches of Lamu, Kenya. Its unique scent can be considered a scent escape, transporting you to sundrenched beaches and whiffs of coconut, saltwater, and sandy florals. The brand explains it even contains a “neuroscientifically proven technology that elicits feelings of energy, revitalization, refreshed, stimulation, excitement, enthusiasm, and cleanliness.” A boost to mood and wellness?
