Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking…
To quote the Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking…”, whilst florals may not be a groundbreaking trend for Spring-time there’s a reason why they are the go-to scent at this time of year.
When it comes to fragrances, florals are here to stay. These botanical beauties are a necessity in perfumery. Here’s our favourite floral fragrances for the Spring time.
Come Up Smelling of Roses
Crowned the ‘Queen’ of perfume, rose will long be a favourite in fragrances. Rose may seem outdated to some but with the right fragrance combination, it can be a refreshing scent for the new Spring season. In fact, the traditional scents of rose and violet are making a comeback…
Like a freshly-cut bouquet, our English Rose signature scent is a luxurious and surprisingly refreshing take on this classic floral.
Prep your skin for Spring with the English Rose body butter. Shortlisted in the 2018 Beauty Awards, this body butter is packed with Pro Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, Natural Fruit Extracts and Aloe Vera extract to leave skin feeling instantly nourished, soft and smooth to touch.
Just Say Yes to Jasmine
Jasmine is the second most-used floral in fragrances and has been the basis of many much-loved perfumes in the last 100 years. You’ll find this delightful bloom in almost any floral fragrance and it isn’t going anywhere this Spring either.
This utterly addictive and well-rounded floral can be found in each of our English Rose, Elderflower Fizz and Violet Dreams Signature fragrances. This hypnotic and heady scent of Jasmine surprisingly helps transform each of these different floral fragrances into a unique and beautiful scent.
Enjoy a Spritz of Elderflower
Not only does Elderflower go great with gin, it’s also a beautiful addition for a floral fragrance. The grassy and lemony scent of elderflower revives the spirit of Spring after a long, cold Winter.
Our Elderflower Fizz signature scent is a vibrant and fruity accord with opening notes of apple and cucumber, perfect for those looking for a refreshing floral fragrance that’s reminiscent of a spring garden, bottled up for your enjoyment.
Be Vibrant in Violet
Early in the Spring season, you’ll start seeing Violets popping up in gardens everywhere. You’ll also see it blossoming in bath and body products.
The scent of violet is both ethereal and magical. It can be earthy and powdery or delicate and light, like a petal. This fantasy scent also has the power to come and go in flows, making it the perfect floral for all day freshness.
Our Violet Dreams signature scent has sweet top notes of bergamot, green apple, kumquat and parma violet leading to heart notes of lily, rose, jasmine and sandalwood. Finished off with base notes of patchouli, musk, vanilla, dry flowers, sandalwood, there’s a reason this heart-warming and sweet scent will send you to a nostalgic dreamland.
Indulge your Skin With Vanilla
Next, we have the unsuspecting flower of Vanilla. Whilst many may not associate this sweet and creamy scent with florals, Vanilla comes from orchids of the genus Vanilla.
Far from plain, the scent of vanilla can be warm, sensuous and sweet-smelling. It’s the prefect scent for making that transition from Winter to Spring as you start to swap the spicy fragrances for more refreshing scents.
The I LOVE Vanilla Milk signature scent features a milky accord with bergamot, sandalwood and vanilla for a fragrance that is rich, creamy and as smooth as silk. The Vanilla Milk hand & nail cream is an I LOVE favourite for spring.
One for the Anti-Florals
Still not a fan of florals? Then break the rules and try something fruity for Spring instead!
If you’re part of the Anti-Florals Gang, then there’s plenty of fruity and fresh fragrances to choose from at this time of year.
If you’re already dreaming of Summer, swap your Spring florals for an exotic cocktail of fruity favourites. Mango and grapefruit are blissfully blended with mouth-watering melon, persimmon and juicy pineapple to create the Exotic Fruits signature scent.
With lashings of raspberry, vanilla and strawberry jam, our Glazed Raspberry signature scent is perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth this Spring. The fruity fragrance is lifted with lingering sugary, vanilla warmth for a delicious warm doughnut fragrance, perfect for an anti-floral fan.
Whether you’re a florals lover or not, it’s time to embrace the scents of Spring.
