April Flowers Bring May Flowers: The Best Floral Fragrances for Spring
During the dark days of winter, our thoughts turn to the flowers of spring. Your garden may not be blooming yet, but April is the perfect month to wear floral fragrances that will remind you of the warmer days ahead. From complex blends of many flowers to a soliflores (single flower), there is sure to be one for you.
Carefree uncomplicated fragrances are perfect for Spring. Marc Jacobs Daisy is a sun warmed blend of wild strawberry, violet leaves, red grapefruit, gardenia, violet, jasmine, musk, and vanilla. The bottle top, with its floral daisy stopper is as cheerful as a walk through a garden.
Like your fragrances Rosy? Try Valentino Rock and Rose, inspired by a new generation of modern women who have both style and attitude. Rock and Rose is a fruity, airy ode to the most romantic of flowers that can be worn for any occasion. This is a perfume that takes you from the office to cocktails. Forget fussy old-fashioned rose perfumes; this is a modern rose with edgy notes of patchouli and dark musk.
Bring the garden indoors with Gucci Flora. It's is bright and feminine bouquet of pink peony, roses, apricot-scented osmanthus wrapped in vanilla and creamy sandalwood that is elegant and feminine. We love the bottle design which is based on Princess Grace of Monaco’s Gucci scarf.
Sweet Pea is the flower for April. Sound demure? Play for Her by Givenchy is a lush floral with notes of tiare and sweat pea that pop with pink pepper and a musky, woody drydown. Housed in a bottle that resembles a MP3 player, it is the perfect scent to cheer you up on a rainy day.
Longing for a flirty floral? Kenzo Flower is bright, light and spontaneous. The first poppy fragrance ever created, this soft scent, with notes of rose, palma violets and cassie is great for the city girl who wants to reconnect with nature. Flower, like spring will make you feel renewed.
Violets are one of the first flowers to bloom in spring. Sometimes thought of as old-fashioned and for women only, it all depends on where violet is placed; it can be used in a sweet fruity floral like Paris Hilton Heiress with notes of bubbly champagne, passionfruit and juicy peach or in a green-aromatic masculine scent like the distinctive Gucci Pour Homme Ii, with its notes of violet leaves, black tea, tobacco and wood.
Florals aren’t for women only. Feeling fearless? We recommend Bandit by Robert Piguet which surrounds neroli, jasmine and tuberose with smoky leather and musk. Sophisticated and sexy for bad boys and the girls who love them.
