Top Six Spring Scents

With spring not too far away there’s only one thing to thing about and that’s switching from winter perfumes to glorious new spring scents. To save you the trouble of heading to Boots, trying several testers and ultimately smelling like a chemical factory, I’ve tried and tested six fragrances which I think are perfect for spring.

Fantastic Perfume – By Saffron
So usually I despise cheap perfumes, there’s truly nothing worse than smelling like Wilkinson’s own bleach and that’s a fact yet Fantastic by Saffron is one of the most beautiful perfumes I’ve ever come across and it’s priced at £1.88! (see link below)
So you may be thinking that the perfume smells awful but I can honestly tell you that you’re wrong. It has a sweet and fruity scent that leaves you feeling very feminine. Top notes include lychee, golden quince and kiwi creating a sumptuous fruity scent. The middle notes are laced with a beautiful cupcake accord, jasmine petals and white chocolate orchid adding a sweetness to the scent. The base notes finishes with an enchanting blend of creamy musk, orris root and woods.
All in all the perfume really is fantastic, it’s still a firm favourite of mine and I used it for several years, perfect for those who want to smell great but are on a budget!

Red Ammo by Madame Shi

One of the nicest gifts I ever got from a friend was a bottle of Red Ammo by Madame Shi. It’s a very underrated perfume and there’s no reviews or information about it online but let me tell you this, it’s gorgeous. At full price it’s £16.50 and online it’s available for £5.52 (see link below) but the perfume is anything but cheap. It’s shaped like a red hand grenade and comes in a tub that has chains wrapped around it to look like an oil drum which is pretty cool. There is no information about the notes used in it however it has a sweet fruity smell (more fruity than sweet) which smells like black cherries. The perfume itself is fairly long lasting and is both flirty and sensual. A must have for anyone who is a fan of fruity scents.

Japanese Cherry Blossom by The Body Shop
I’m not usually a fan of floral scents I have to say. When I read the word floral I instantly think of musty charity shops, elderly women smothered in lavender oil and Colleen McLoughlin’s perfume which in my opinion smelt like dead flowers but I have to say Japanese Cherry Blossom was a pleasant surprise. Priced at £15.00 for 50ml it’s made from a unique blend of wood accords and creates a fruity yet floral scent that distinctly reminds me of a summers day. It has a strong scent so you don’t need to apply much meaning a bottle lasts for ages (I’ve used a quarter of a bottle in two months) Uplifting, refreshing and flirty if you love flowers then it’s the perfume for you.

Luminous by Ghost
I’ve heard mixed reviews about Ghost perfumes and I would say that they are an acquired taste however Luminous is a perfume that can really suit everyone and is priced at £24.00 at Superdrug. There’s floral tones in it with the mixture of lily of the valley, violet, rose, freesia, jasmine and raspberry leaves, then the fruity tones with the addition of pineapple, orange, blackcurrant, apples and melon, fresh tones with bergamot, sea breeze accord and champagne base and the sensual woody scent that I oh so love with the use of Sandalwood, vetiver, peach and candied raspberry. It sounds like it’s too much for one perfume but don’t be fooled, this perfume has been crafted with the most careful of hands and creates a delicate scent that smells different on everyone. So whether you love fruity scents or floral aromas, Luminous will charm even the pickiest of perfume connoisseurs.

Touch of Pink by Lacoste
This is one of the most popular and well known perfumes despite the fact that it was launched in 2004 simply because it creates a perfect mix of floral, fruity and sweet all in one perfume to suit females aged thirteen to fifty. With base notes of sandalwood, musk and vanilla, Touch of Pink instantly creates a sweet and sensual scent. The heart notes of jasmine, violet and carrot Seed Oil add a playful twist to a delicate scent and the top notes orange, cardamom and coriander finish the product to create a flirty scent that is both classic and modern. Priced at £24.99 Touch of Pink really is worth every penny as you smell gorgeous and the perfume is long lasting as well!

Be Delicious (Apple) by DKNY
If you prefer to splash your cash on the highest quality of perfumes then for £34.99 Be Delicious is a perfume that you should consider. With top notes of mango and peach, heart notes of peony, lily of the valley, violet and apple and base notes of cedar, amber and woodsy notes this perfume is a true gem. Fruity, fresh, juicy and uplifting this scent is perfect for those blustery spring days.
