A burst of fresh floral scents is the perfect way to bring spring alive during this awkward Michigan climate change. It is also the perfect finishing touch to any look. Luckily, there are a plenty of distinctive fragrances on the counters this season to choose from. Here are a few scents recommended for Spring 2015:
Daisy Eau so Fresh Sorbet by Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs is known for his collection of floral fragrances but with his new, Daisy Sorbet he offers a lighter and more delicate floral balance. The lightness of the Daisy Eau so Fresh Sorbet is ideal for the season. It is also befitting for anyone who is not into heavy scents.
The perfume combines floral and fruit notes that include pink grapefruit, pear, passion fruit, Wisteria, and Violet Wood. Simply put, the fragrance is a soft, sweet bouquet of spring notes in a bottle.
Daisy Eau so Fresh Sorbet by Marc Jacobs is available at Macy’s for $76.00 in 1.7 oz and 2.5 oz for $89.00.
Bonbon by Viktor & Rolf
Bonbon is a luxurious and sweet scent, modeled after a decadent and inviting dessert that keeps you wanting for more. The scent has a key note of caramel, lined with fruity and floral notes that include tangerine, black currant, orange blossom, jasmine, and peach.
The base notes consist of Guaiac Wood, Cedarwood, and caramel. Essentially, the bold, caramelized floral notes make the fragrance indulgent and unforgettable from the first spray.
Bonbon by Viktor & Rolf is sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. Bonbon is available in 1.7 oz for $115.00 and in a 3 oz bottle for $165.00.
Dolce Floral Drops by Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce Floral Drops is a new fragrance that is a follow up to 2014’s Dolce by Dolce&Gabbana. Floral Drops is inspired by the smell of newly, picked flowers, covered in dew. The fragrance boasts of many floral notes but is still sprinkled in a deliberate, light tone made possible by delicates notes that include Cashmeran.
Floral Drops still features the South African white amaryllis from Dolce and top notes of Neroli Leaf and Papaya Flower. Overall, the fragrance is a much softer, lighter, and fresher scent than Dolce. It is as exotic and as unique as its combination of notes.
Dolce Floral Drops by Dolce & Gabbana is available at Sephora for $83.00 in 1.6oz. and in 2.5 oz for $101.00.
Walk on Air by Kate Spade
Walk on Air is purely an all -floral fragrance. Walk on Air’s floral notes include linden blossom, crinum lily, Tunisian neroli, white iris, and Egyptian jasmine. Despite the many flowers used to create the fresh scent, it captures more of airy green tones of the flowers in the fragrance. Walk on Air is a perfect day fragrance.
Walk on Air by Kate Spade is available at Nordstrom for $75.00 in 1.7oz and in 3.4oz for $95.00.
