Spring is almost here and it couldn’t be more welcome! I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but frankly I’m a little tired of slip-sliding over ice patches in the city. As we head in to warmer weather I thought it would be really fun to share 7 Scents for Spring – a collection of some of my personal favorite Spring scents, as well as some exciting scents that have just hit store shelves!
TOCCA Isabel – One of the latest additions to the TOCCA family, Isabel promises to be an ideal fragrance this upcoming season with notes of Mediterranean Orange, Pear, Spanish Rose and (love this) of leather, and vetiver.
Library of Flowers Honeycomb – Honeycomb is redolent of lazy Spring days where the sun is comforting and warm and you can smell the sweet scent of fresh flowers. Plus, Library of Flowers’ packaging is irresistibly beautiful. Top: Sugared Fig, Middle: Ambrosia Honey, Bottom: Royal Bee Blossom. Library of Flowers also recommends their Kirimashi Air!
ESCADA Turquoise Summer – To be fair, this scent is more designated for summer, but if you’re into bright fruit-infused scents that mellow out with the more sensual sandalwood and vanilla, then this one is right up your alley!
CLEAN Air – I absolutely adore this fragrance. I was introduced to the CLEAN brand a couple of years ago by my younger sister (she’s one classy gal) and now I own quite a lot of CLEAN scents. My most recent acquisition is CLEAN Air. It’s a very versatile fragrance because not only is it a gorgeous, lush, crisp, yet woodsy scent, but it also brings out really great notes when paired with other CLEAN fragrances! Top notes feature bergamot blossoms, lush green accord, and mountain air accord; mid notes include sparkling freesia and dewy peonies, and base notes boast enveloping musk, cashmere woods, and white amber.
Illume Cactus Verde – My sister loves this scent! And who could blame her? How outrageously Spring-ready does this fragrance sound? “Feel as brilliant as a bloom and as sweet as a succulent. A bright blend of cassis, pink sea salt, and wild geranium with a hint of avocado.” Can’t get enough of Illume (me either!)? Here’s what they recommend for Spring!

TokyoMilk Le Petit No. 2 – Typically, I’d say anything from their Dark collection, but for Spring I’m going to have to defer to the lovely brand themselves:
Bath & Body Works French Lavender & Honey – This is one of my all-time favorite scents. Normally I would not splurge on the perfume version of B&BW fragrances but the French Lavender & Honey line smells so amazing that I did (twice!). It’s a lovely floral scent with a slight sort of fruity/citrus undertone and a great musk and honey base that balances it all out.
