Spring scents for her

During the colder months of the year we don’t steer far away from our warm woody and Oriental fragrances. After all, there’s nothing like a mixture of musks, spices and woods to add a bit of warmth when it’s most needed. But just as we pack our winter woollies away when the weather starts to turn, it’s important to re-think one’s fragrance choices. You may find that a spicy fragrance combined with 32 degrees heat is overpowering rather than sensual and that it doesn’t have the inviting effect you’ve become accustomed to during winter.

So what should you be wearing this spring? Fresh florals, citrus and aquatic scents work best in warmer weather. They are cooling when sprayed against warm skin and have an uplifting effect on the senses. Look out for notes of lemon, jasmine, rose, mint, lime and lily. Many of the fresher fragrances are available in eau de toilette versions, so remember that you may need to spray them more often than you would your heavier eau de parfums you wear in winter.

We’ve compiled a list of new scents we think are perfect for the new spring season. Which of these will you be trying, Beauties?

Taylor by Taylor Swift EDP 50ml, R495

Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic EDT 60ml, R675

Puma Sync For Her EDT 60ml, R280

Elizabeth Arden Untold EDP 50ml, R650 (available 14 October 2013)

Prada Candy L’Eau EDT 50ml, R840

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow EDT 60ml, R600

Marc Jacobs Honey EDP 50ml, R910 (available 7 October 2013)

Shiseido Zen Sunshine EDT 100ml, R710

    These bottles are adorable! One of the great things about perfume. It does not only smell great, but look great on our dressers ;-).

    I think I might just check out the Puma perfumes. I heard from a friend of mine that they are really great. Need to put the Prada Candy on my Xmas wish list though ;)

    The Prada Candy is truly a classic; light with fresh, floral undertones it’s a perfect summer fragrance.

    Crabtree and Evelyn Somerset Meadow.. They tend to do very fresh and spring-suitable fragrances.

    Would a Jimmy Choo and Rihanna fragrance (particularly Nude) be considered fragrances to where in the spring/summer?

    I don’t like the perfume Taylor but I am a sucker for anything by Thierry Mugler, so might try the Alien Aqua.
