10 new spring perfumes to add to the wish list
It used to be commiting to a signature scent and wearing it devotedly was the height of chic, a way to let the world know something of your style and character. Now, as the budget allows, we're all about maintaining a fragrance 'wardrobe'. A selection of perfumes to choose from that suit your mood or the occasion, rather than one fits all.
You could blame it on our short attention spans and relentless desire for the new and the next, but that would be a bit of a vibe-killer right? We prefer to credit all of the amazing and unique work perfumers do bringing unique and enchanting new scents to the table!
Just like we update our outfits, one thing that does insire a change in the perfume we wear is a new season. For spring that means retiring heavy, intoxicating scents in favour of lighter and fresher options.
Lucky us then, because there's plenty of beautiful new releases to inspire the change:
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sun 50ml, $110
Summer in a bottle, this brilliantly harnesses breezy and bright ‘solar’ notes along with citrus and coconut elements. It's light and playful and easy to wear with a crisp summer dress and sandals, but smells warm and alluring on the skin as the sun goes down | Shop now
A fresh, airy take on Prada’s grown up releases with mandarin, frangipani, magnolia and sandalood resulting in a perfect daytime perfume in the height of summer. We’ll easily exhaust this bottle this season! | Shop now
Givenchy L’Interdit 50ml EDT, $146
A lighter, fresher version of the previous L’Interdit which is an after-dark essential with notes of vetiver and patchouli. Still with white florals like the original, this is crisp and elegant rather than seductive and alluring | Shop now
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Empire 50ml EDP, $145
Liquor-tinged fragrances are a new trend emerging in perfumery. Think rum, bourbon and the fizz of champagne. Here we get the sexy, spirited blend of magnolia and patchouli with a weighty splash of cognac, resulting in something sweet and fun | Shop now
Unlike anything you already own, this is sweet and powdery but with a metallic, almost cold glint as you first encounter. If you like your fragrance to be a talking point, this one’s for you | Shop now
Jo Malone Poppy & Barley 30 ml Cologne, $120
Like wandering through a warm meadow of blooming poppies with the sun on your face. A lively floral scent, enhanced by rose and violet and topped with juicy blackcurrants | Shop now
Paco Rabanne Olympea Legend 50ml EDP, $145
Sweet vanilla seems to be the theme of the season. Here it reads as a sensuous warmth, however additional plum and salty notes gives it a more unique personality | Shop now
YSL Libre 50ml EDP, $179
Quite possibly the gift of the season because even if you’re not fond of the scent - and the citrus and lavender is an easy wear that many will love - the bottle is a desirable dressing table accessory for sure | Shop now
Versace Eros Flame 50m EDP, $126
Technically intended for men but as we enter a new era of gender diverse fragrance, there are no rules anymore! Woody and juicy with notes of spice and - you guessed it - vanilla | Shop now
Burberry Her Blossom 50ml EDT, $139
Inspired by London’s parks in spring, this delicately feminine blend features blossom and peony | Shop Now
