Favorite spring fragrances

Spring time is the perfect time for trying some perfumes. It should therefore come as no surprise that some of my all time fragrances are also perfect for spring. I have made a selection of 5 of my fragrances that I think are perfect for wearing in the spring time. favorite spring fragrances

Favorite spring fragrances

Balenciaga Florabotanica – If I had to pick one signature scent that I could wear for the rest of my life, this would be it. That is a bold statement to make and for a long time I was very undecided on what kind of fragrance would be perfect for me. But then I found this one by chance. This one has a very minty, fresh top note to it, but when it settles down and works with your natural chemistry, it warms up and becomes a lot muskier. While that may seem like a weird combination, I love it. I like how it has an interesting scent to it and where I usually get bored with fragrances before the bottle is halfway gone, this is one that I used up completely and then repurchased.

Dolce & Gabbana Dolce – One of my current favorites is this very simple fragrance by Dolce & Gabbana. It is a floral fragrance that is still quite fresh. It is definitely very different to the first one as this doesn’t become as warm and musky after it wears down a bit. It keeps this floral, bouquet scent and it is a very light fragrance. It is an easy, day time perfume that I love to wear to work. This lasts all day on me, but I can also apply quite a bit of it to make sure that it does. Where some floral fragrances can be very heady, I find that this is a welcome exception to that rule. Nothing too special, but a great one if you want a simple, easy to wear fragrance that is not too overpowering.

Dior J’Adore – A fragrance that I have had for quite some time but that I no longer wear much is this one. It was one of the first more expensive fragrances I bought. And you guessed it: despite having had this for some time, I got bored with this one. I think it is one you smell a lot on many different people and therefore isn’t super special. I liked this back when I was very into a jasmine type scent, but as my tastes have changed, I have not been wearing this much. It is a great perfume for the spring time though as it also has an easy, simple freshness to it. Before I owned Dolce, this definitely fulfilled that fragrance’s function.

DKNY Pure – An oldie but goodie that I kind of rediscovered last year. This also shows you that sometimes, a forgotten love can come back on top. This is another easy perfume. I guess that is something you can say is a pattern to my favorite spring fragrance. I love wearing this fragrance when I am looking for something uplifting and comfortable. To me, this fragrance is like putting on sweatpants. It is soft, pleasant and easy to wear. I love wearing this to a dinner after a long day of work as it layers well with everything I put on in the morning.

Dior Miss Dior Cherie – Another forgotten favorite but nonetheless one I still like to wear from time to time. As far as I know I have the older version of this perfume. It has since been reformulated. It is a very girly perfume and therefore not one that I think really suits me anymore. It is also a very popular fragrance which means that you can smell this around you all the time. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I like wearing fragrances that I don’t smell on many other people. It’s probably why I fell out of love for this one a bit, but for spring it is a beautiful fragrance to wear.

  1. Mmmm, die eerste vind ik ook zalig, had ik een paar testertjes van. Alleen ik heb nog zo veel, dus moet even wachten!

    1. Ja ik heb ook genoeg. Kwam op vakantie nog een mooie geur tegen, maar heb hem toch laten staan. Ik heb genoeg andere lekker geuren. Tijd dat er eens eentje op gaat.
