A s soon as it hits April, I’m done with coats. And scarfs. And tights. And every other annoying piece of winter clothing that exists. But unfortunately, when you’re living in the UK, it’s not always possible to be “done”. So, if you, like me, can’t dress for spring in the springtime, the next best thing is to do is change up your scent and wait. Here are 5 of the best new scents for spring.
Hermes’ bold new scent is bound to leave a lasting impression, combining ginger, tuberose and sandalwood, which comes across as feminine yet spicy. Not for the faint-hearted, it’s all you need to make a statement after dark. The best part? The bottle is finished with a hand-tied Hermes silk ribbon.
Maison Margiela can do no wrong, launching Springtime in a Park just in time for (you guessed it) spring! Perfect for the transeasonal period when all you want to do is wear a dress but the weather calls for jeans, as soon as you spritz it you’ll feel like you’re walking in the sun amongst cherry trees in full blossom.
Rose petals get a much-needed modern update in this fresh new Jo by Jo Loves scent. Just the right amount of floral for everyday wear, I’m obsessed with the paintbrush version, meaning you can literally paint it on, rather than spray it. The size makes it perfect for your handbag.
When it comes to luxury brands that do also do beauty, Yves Saint Laurent is up there with the best. Complete with an oversized YSL logo on the bottle Yves Saint Laurent’s Libre is the unsuspecting mix of orange blossom flowers and lavender and the result is serious sophistication.
Gucci Guilty has been a mainstay on my vanity for over five years so it’s no surprise that I fell in love with Gucci Guilty Love almost immediately. A mix of oriental, floral and fruity notes, it’s slightly musky and slightly sweet.
