Our Top 5 Spring Scents

Are fragrances really seasonal? Do you wear the same scent all year round or alter your perfume according to your mood, occasion or outfit?  Why is it we go for a fresher fragrance in summer and a heavier fragrance in winter? The truth is, aromatic molecules need heat to evaporate and dissipate, so when the weather is warmer our fragrances waft more, whilst in the colder months scent doesn’t project as much which probably why we choose a deeper fragrance in winter, feeling comforting and warming. However, your fragrance is your choice for any season, occasion or mood, but if you are into spring fragrances then here are our top 5 spring scents;
