While it’s not a new fragrance, you can’t talk about spring and summer scents without acknowledging a fragrance with a name like Flowerbomb. April showers bring May flowers, and you can invoke the beautiful spring 2023 season by utilizing Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb in your fragrance rotation. This perfume is a beautiful blend of peach, orchid, and vanilla, yet it isn’t overpowering. Choosing this fragrance as your spring or summer go-to makes you feel like a walking farmer’s market.
Tory Burch by Tory Burch
While her clothing may lean preppy, that doesn’t have to be your aesthetic to appreciate how perfect Tory Burch fragrance is for spring and summer. If you’re a fan of citrus over florals during this time of year, sample this at your local beauty store, and you’ll likely leave with a bottle. While its notes are citrus, it also includes peppery notes to balance the citrus. It’s a clean and invigorating scent best applied to bare skin when you get out of the shower to leave you feeling perfectly refreshed all day long.
Skylar Coconut Cove
Summer is synonymous with vacations and spending days by the beach, and while we’d all love to spend the entire season there, chances are that’s not feasible, you know, responsibilities. But you can smell like the beach all spring and summer by choosing Skylar Coconut Cove as your fragrance this year. As the name suggests, its strongest note is coconut, which includes jasmine and bergamot. The sweetness of the coconut combined with sea-salt notes is a perfect balance to keep you satisfied between beach days and vacations.
Shopping for perfumes can be a delicate balancing act. You want to find a fragrance you love that works with your body’s natural chemistry and pheromones. The best perfumes are the ones that you can’t smell on yourself. Remember to apply perfume to your bare skin, not your clothing and hair, and on the specific pulse points like behind the ear lobs, your inner wrists, and above your belly button. Smelling beautiful will keep you in the uplifting mood we all want with a fresh spring season.
