The Fresh And Feminine Spring Scents We Are Loving Now

#1: Miu Miu L’Eau Bleue EDP, $147
For the second iteration in the Miu Miu fragrance family, perfumer Daniela Andrier evokes the sensation of arrival, when you realise that spring has arrived. The sensation is delicate, like a wisp of air. The lush scent of fresh lily of the valley is accompanied by the glistening sparkle of dew. In the background, there’s the transparent twinge of honeysuckle and earthy akigalawood.   #2: Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Celestia EDT, price unavailable, Escentials
With this new scent, Francis Kurkdjian has given freshness a new form, lending it a sustained trail in which lime from Mexico, cool mint from England and blackcurrant from Burgundy converse. Together, they form a fresh, colourful and generous top note accord that resonates with the sunny radiance of mimosa blossoms from Provence and a light whisper of musk. #3: Chloe Love Story Eau Sensuelle EDP, $147
Created by two women, Anne Flipo and Domitille Bertier, this reveals a new facet of the line’s signature scent of orange blossom. Blended with sunny notes and heliotrope’s vanilla scent, the orange blossom is sweeter and more romantic than ever. Sandalwood chord also gives depth to this milky, elegant fragrance. #4: Byredo Limited Edition Bibliotheque EDP, price unavailable, Escentials
One of the brand’s most popular candles is being interpreted as an Eau de Parfum for the first time due to popular demand. Inspired by the comforting confines of a traditional library, this soft, subtle fragrance retains the same peach, plum, violet, peony, leather and vanilla notes of the candle.   #5: L'Occitane Cerisier Pastel Eau Legere EDT, $70
Inspired by Hanami, a celebration held in Japan where people honour the blossoming of delicate cherry blossoms as the first sign of spring, this subtle floral bouquet has notes of pear, fresh cherry juice and vanilla. #6: Dior J’adore in Joy EDT, $134
The latest offering in the French brand’s signature fragrance family, it is the younger, hipper version of the original EDP. Considered a salty gourmand fragrance, it opens with fleur de sel, a type of sea salt, before mellowing into a white floral heart of ylang ylang, jasmine and neroli. The refreshing honeyed smell of juicy peach rounds up the light, salty nectar. #7: Ferragamo Signorina in Fiore EDT, $130
Inspired by joy, romance and blooming flowers, this feminine scent opens with sparkling, fruity notes of nashi pear sorbet and pomegranate. The heart of the fragrance is centered around cherry blossoms, with jasmine petals helping to illuminate the perfume. The light, refreshing scent then embraced with soft white musk and creamy sandalwood. #8: Elizabeth Arden White Tea EDT, $67
Crafted to echo the peaceful simplicity of sunlit skin, crisp sheets, a good book and a sip of tea, this features crisp, sparkling Italian mandarin complimented by sensual notes of sea breeze accord. It has a zen-like heart of white tea extract and Turkish rose absolute, while lingering notes of Madras wood and a Trio of Tranquility Musks lead to a harmonious base.
