Top 5 Fragrances for Spring
Nothing signals Spring like the wonderful aromas bursting forth from gardens everywhere. From Jasmine to Rose, Gardenia to some wonderful Australian natives, the scent of gorgeous florals is everywhere. And it’s a timely reminder that we should be looking to switch from our more intense winter scents, to a lighter, fresher fragrance for Spring. With so many on the market, making a choice can be a little overwhelming, so we’ve looked at the scents available this Spring, and chosen (in our humble opinion), 5 of the best. Read on to find out what they are.
Jo Malone London Poppy & Barley Cologne
Is there anything prettier than the English countryside in Spring? The new Jo Malone Poppy & Barley Cologne captures the spirit of this countryside perfectly. Think iconic, vibrant poppies dancing in colour across England’s meadows, and you have the essence of the scent.

Base notes of White Musk, Bran, and Barley complete the quintessential English scent. 100ml Cologne RRP $199.00. Also available in 30ml, and as a Hand & Body Wash 250ml. Why not layer with Jo Malone London Honeysuckle & Davana for a gorgeous Spring floral combination.
Carven Dans Ma Bulle Eau De Toilette
This fresh interpretation of the original Dans Ma Bulle (In My Bubble) is the very essence of Spring – the green colour of the fragrance and packaging represents hope and the precious beauty of nature. Opening with juicy, fruity notes of Pear, Litchi, and Mandarin, the scent almost sparkles with energy. Notes of Peony and Sweet Almond Accord provide the fragrance with a romantic heart, whilst base notes of Iris and Musk provide a harmonious finish. This is the perfect scent to wear for those first long lunches of Spring, or a day at the races – soft and sensual. Eau De Toilette 50ml RRP $95.00. Also available in 100ml.
Aerin Aegea Blossom

The heart notes are diffused with a hint of sheer Jasmine to impart a unique lumonisity, whilst sun-drenched Neroli Petals and blooming Orange Flower glisten. In the final notes, sensual Musk surrenders to the sultry, lingering notes of Vetiver and Sandalwood, as warm as the reflection of sunlight on water. Eau De Parfum 50ml RRP $180.00.
