Spring has sprung and with that in mind, it’s time to trade in our heavy woody scents for something with more of a delicate allure. Just because the weather is getting warmer, however, doesn’t mean we have to resort to straightforward florals. In fact, this season's stand-outs include tea-inspired scents designed to be layered from Jo Malone, a can’t-stop-smelling-it Portofino-inspired eau de parfum from Tom Ford, and a crisp, vegetal, rooftop garden-inspired scent from Hermes.
But what's spring without a few florals? Floral-heavy scents include Armani's Acqua di Gioia and Annick Goutal's Le Mimosa, but with Armani and Goutal, when is a floral ever just a floral?
The biggest fragrance surprise of the season, however, goes to Jennifer Aniston who has launched perhaps the most surprisingly wonderful celebrity scent with her namesake beach-y fragrance. Victoria Beckham, are you next?
