Spring is the time of rebirth and new awakenings. Fragrances will be warm and filled with depth but hold the promise of flora and fauna. They will be green and have sparkling creativity with uniqueness.
Expect to find essential oils from chamomile, lilies, and daffodils. They will sit alongside fruit and mild earthy notes.

Perfect is a unique fragrance that balances a number of elements. On the top, it presents itself as a floral bouquet made of daffodils and with hints of chamomile. Yet underneath, it has earthy exotic mid notes of almond, cashew, and far eastern evenings.
This is such a versatile perfume that you could even use it as an Autumn fragrance. It is a complicated scent for a complex, ever-changing time of the year.
Shine by Dolce and Gabbana
Shine is fruity, floral, and exotic all in one cute, bright yellow bottle. It is a very light perfume, to be worn in spring rains and sunny afternoons.

Rose Prick by Tom Ford
On the surface, this summer bouquet may seem like a simple rose fragrance. However, it has a full-bodied depth and character that encapsulates the spirit of the season. It has a nose of warm middle eastern evenings.
On top, a sophisticated blend of Bulgarian, Turkish, and De Mai rose coalesces into a cascade of flowers. Behind this, the base is made from sharp spices such as black pepper and turmeric.
