Let your perfume do the talking this spring. Here are the trending fragrance notes and how to wear them to make a statement this season.

We know that scent has the power to affect our mood, bring back forgotten memories and evoke a sense of luxury. As fashion designer and beauty mogul Giorgio Armani once said: “A perfume is more than an extract. It is a presence in abstraction. A perfume, for me, is a mystique.”

 

Smells like spring

Spring fragrance notes often have a strong emphasis on fresh, floral extracts. But far from being one-note wonders, today’s seasonal offerings combine notes from across categories to create perfumes that are elevated and distinctive.

This can also be done by the wearer. Scent layering is the art of combining multiple fragrances or notes to create a customised scent. This allows room for olfactory creativity and developing a scent that is completely unique.

Here’s how to find spring fragrance notes to suit any occasion and smell like a freshly picked bouquet all season long.

 

Conservative but cool

No longer our grandmothers’ signature scents, floral notes such as rose, lavender and lilac are experiencing a resurgence. While fragrant on their own, blending them with other notes can elevate these classic scents to bold new heights.

 

TIP: Meeting your partner’s parents for the first time or starting a new job? Combine with earthy notes, such as patchouli or ylang-ylang, traditional cents can have a modern, edgy makeover.

 

Sweet and simple

Some scents are synonymous with springtime, and flowers such as honeysuckle, jasmine and cherry blossom are in full bloom. Sweet and distinctive, these notes are nostalgic yet timeless - and perfect for warm-weather spritzing.

 

TIP: Hitting the town for a girls’ night out? Pair these sweet notes with sandalwood for a sultry scent trail, or with citrus notes such as bergamot or grapefruit, for a fresh but oh-so-fragrant finish.

 

Dreaming of summer

One of the best things about spring is that it means summer is on the way. White floral notes, such as gardenia and tuberose, are popular for transitional perfumes. This is because they are warmer and more intense than traditional green seasonal scents.

 

TIP: Going on a first date? These versatile, seductive notes have the ability to transport you to exotic lands and make a lasting impression. Bring the zing by layering with citrus notes for balmy beach days.

 

As the saying goes, ‘Perfume is personal magic. It is a first impression and a lasting recollection.’ When selecting and layering your spring fragrance notes, be brave and experiment. Who knows – you could be just one perfume or combination away from discovering your signature scent for the season.
