Two Spring Fragrances You Need In Your Life
fragrances you need to add to your collection pronto.
Perfume. You're either that person has all of the scents (in a beautiful instagrammable tray of some sort) or you have YOUR scent and stick to it no matter what. Me? I used to be the latter, Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir come rain or shine I would be wearing it. Every birthday and every Christmas at least someone in my family would buy me a top up.
Don't get me wrong it's still my ride scent, I can't be without it. I have a huge bottle for home and a travel bottle ready to go away with me at all times however, in the past year or so I have been growing a collection and learning to change things up a bit. The best way I find to do this is to have seasonal scents, ones which I feel match the season or the mood at the time.
So with that being said, here's what fragrances that I'll be wearing in Spring.
So when it comes to fragrance I do love to turn to Jo Malone. One of the things I love about the brand is their exclusive limited edition releases. They never fail to disappoint and there's something oh so exciting about collecting the different designs.
This March Jo Malone released the English Fields collection of five new spring scents. The idea behind these limited edition fragrances is their ode to the english landscape, wholesome and warm in scent, colourful and simple in style.
The five scents consist of: Poppy & Barley, Primrose & Rye, Oat & Cornflower, Honey & Crocus and Green Wheat & Meadowsweet.
finding your spring scent
Finding your scent in a sea of perfumes isn't always that easy, especially after smelling a few - the scents all really just blend into one don't they? For me whenever I'm going into a new season and am looking to purchase I have a think of some specifics first: How deep do you want the scent to be? Floral or Musky? Sweet or Fresh?
We all have scents we are not drawn to and some which we have a habit of leaning towards. For me, I'm not big on super floral, I like a fresh scent and I also (perhaps weirdly?) like a peppery one too.
Make a mental note of the things you love, or if for a particular season - what you are looking for and arm yourself with that before trying them all out!
Oat & Cornflower
Very luckily I was scent two of the collection to try out for size. The first one was the Oat & Cornflower* which can be described as a deep velvety scent with hints of warm oats and hazelnut. I really love this scent, I'm often drawn to a deeper almost masculine scent but I also love that there is a sweetness hidden in here too.
This has gone straight into my spring rotation of fragrances and I tend to opt to wear this in the evening, whether I'm going out for drinks or dinner. To me this scent is the ultimate evening accompaniment, also the longevity of it helps see it's way deep into the evening
honey & crocus
On the complete opposite side of the scale we have Honey & Crocus* - the delicate sweeter sister of the five. Think spring blooms mixed with warm honey and almond milk. It almost feels like the smell of a patisserie filled with bunches of flowers. Now how's that for an explanation?
I've been wearing this pretty non stop as a daily fragrance. Putting this on in the morning is a sure way to start my day with a buzz, the sweet and brightening scent feels so incredible positive and puts me in a bloomin' good mood. Which let's be honest, what more could you want for a perfume?
Thank you to Jo Malone for gifting these products
