If you love fresh, sweet and floral scents, then spring is an ideal time to seek out a new favourite, or signature fragrance. At no other time in the year do you get such an abundance of scents that have zesty fruits, flowers or light musks at the heart of their fragrance. With this in mind, we have selected some of what we think will be the bestsellers of spring’s new Fragrances releases:
Roberto Cavalli’s Acqua Eau de Toilette fragrance
Captured in a beautiful turquoise bottle that reminds us of a still Mediterranean sea, Roberto Cavalli’s Acqua Eau de Toilette is a light, fresh scent, said to be inspired by ‘the eternal allure of the and the irresistible sensuality of the Roberto Cavalli woman’. Top notes of fresh jasmine with lily of the valley help to lighten the orange flower heart, leaving a trace of base notes of musk on the skin. Available in 30ml – £32, 50ml – £44 and 75ml – £58. From Debenhams.
See By Chloé fragrance
The very first fragrance from See By Chloé, it is said to ‘capture the irresistible and playful personality of a young woman fully embracing life.’ Another fresh scent, full of citrus bergamot and apple blossom, the middle notes of jasmine add depth with satisfying base notes of sandalwood and vanilla. Available in 30ml – £39, 50ml – £49 and 75ml – £64. From Debenhams.
Jimmy Choo Flash fragrance
You can always rely on Jimmy Choo to add a little glamour to your life, and Flash is exactly that. Described as ‘Intoxicating and dangerously sexy, the scent parades on a catwalk of addictive Powdery Woods’, it sparks off with top notes of pink pepper, tangerine and strawberry, middle notes feature dusky tuberose, jasmine and white lily and the whole scent rests on base notes of heliotrope and blond wood. Available in 40ml – £36, 60ml – £46 and 100ml – £62. From Debenhams.
Burberry Body Tender fragrance
Burberry is one of my favourite smells, it is crisp and unique and I always get compliments when I wear it, so I look out for new fragrances from them. If you love fresh citrus scents then try out Body Tender, it opens with surges of lemon, crisp apple and green absinthe, then middle notes compliment with English rose, white jasmine and it finishes with a beautiful soft base of cashmeran, amber and musk. Available in 60ml – £49. From The Fragrance Shop.
