The warm weather has finally arrived, and with it, the search for lighter, fresher scent (our deliciously rich and musky Narciso Rodriguez just isn’t going to cut it during the sweltering months).
Here are four of our top picks for Spring:
1. Marc Jacobs Splash Biscotti ($68 for 10oz, Sephora)
Notes: Freesia, Bergamot, Orange Blossom, Pistachio Blossom, Vanilla…. though we swear we can smell anise as though we were rubbing freshly baked goods on our skin! This one starts out sweet, and dries down to a deliciously tempting scent that makes you want to keep smelling your arm… or eat it off.
2. Balenciaga ($95 for 1.7 oz, Neiman Marcus)
Notes: Bergamot, Spices, Pepper,V iolet, Carnation, Oakmoss, Cedar, Vetiver, Patchouli, Labdanum. Reminiscent of those childhood lavender splashes mom used to douse you with post-bath… but way more grown up. 3.
3. Marc Jacobs Daisy In The Air ($57 for 1.7 oz, Sephora)
Notes: Strawberry, Violet Leaves, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Gardenia, Violet Petals, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Vanilla, White Woods. Original, Black, Silver, Garland…the bottles tend to rotate, but the scent is always the same: amazingly fresh, yet somehow, completely decadent.
4. CHLOE Eau De Fleurs Lavande ($135 for 100ml, Bloomingdale’s)
Notes: Lavender, Bergamot, Violet, Tea, Iris, Musk, Vetiver and Ambergris. This is the most interesting scent of the bunch, and is definitely one of those stop-on-the-street “what are you wearing?” scents.
