Spring Scents // Fragrance Collection

As soon as a new season dawns, I switch up everything, including my fragrances. I don't have a huge fragrance collection by any means, but I gravitate to certain scents depending on the season. Spring is probably my favourite time for fragrances as I am a loyal fan of floral, fruity notes that are prominent in the majority of spring-targeted fragrances. This being said, I haven't yet bought or acquired any new fragrances this year, so the majority of the below are classic scents that I return back to each year. I have always been one to stick to one fragrance brand or scent family, notably Jo Malone, which has been the case ever since I was a young teen. To me it's a classic, and however popular it gets (I am going to be that hated person now and say I actually knew of the brand before it hit the mainstream) I love it all year round and will continue to do so as years go on...

The first ever Jo Malone scent I tried was Lime Basil and Mandarin (£42), as I was a huge Osbournes fan as a young teen and when I met Sharon for the first time, this was what she was wearing. This has also been the Jo Malone scent that I have repurchased the most, and one that still stands within my collection. I love citrus scents, and this one is particularly crisp and refreshing, with a hint of warmth from the heart note of basil and base note of amberwood. Another favourite Jo Malone fragrance of mine was the limited edition Red Currant & Cream from a few years back, but sadly that bottle has come to end. I replaced this gap in my collection with the brand's Peony & Blush Suede (£42) fragrance, a fruity floral - and rather seductive - scent that comprises notes of apple, peony and suede. Other favourites from the Jo Malone range for spring include: Earl Grey & Cucumber, Orange Blossom and English Pear & Freesia.

Spring fragrances couldn't be a thing without the Marc Jacobs Daisy line. My favourite - other than the original - is the Marc Jacobs Dasiy Dream (£52)*, which again is both floral and fruity. A light and airy fragrance, key notes include blackberry, grapefruit and pear, with a heart of jasmine, lychee and blue wisteria, and a base of white woods, musks and coconut water. Yes, it's as dreamy as the name suggests.

Another floral favourite for spring is the Crabtree & Evelyn Parisian Millefleurs Flower Water (£45)*, which blends together a diverse range of blooms, with notes including pink peppercorn, juniper, lychee, green leaves, rose, tuberose, violet, sandalwood and vanilla among others. It's the perfect combination of light floral and subtle warmth and spice.

I also really adore the DKNY spring fragrances, especially the DKNY Delicious Delights Dreamiscle scent from 2015. The fragrance opens with notes of mandarin, raspberry and blackcurrant before leading to a heart of green apple, peach nectar and apricot sorbet, and a base of cedarwood, sandalwood and vanilla.
