A spring scent is a powerful thing – one spritz can help lift your mood or transport you to a treasured sensory memory. Whether it’s the first blossom in an English country garden, a modern twist on rose, or a rhubarb scent that smells good enough to eat, here are our top five fragrances that bottle the spirit of spring. Plus, we talk to fragrance expert Lori Woodhouse about all-things spring scents – and how to pick the perfect one for you – in our latest IGTV.

JO MALONE LONDON

Waterlily cologne

Perfect for: dreaming of an English country garden  

Why: Does anything herald spring more than the arrival of blossom? One of two new scents to join the popular limited-edition Spring Blossoms collection, Waterlily is a fresh fragrance inspired by the aromas found in English gardens at springtime. Orange blossom and neroli blend with white waterlilies for a zesty floral that’s feminine but not too sweet. 

LOEWE

Aura Pink Magnolia eau de parfum

Perfect for: your dressing table 

Why: The white magnolia flower is at the heart of this feminine fragrance that blends woody sandalwood, red fruits and musk for a modern take on a traditional floral. Plus, the chic gold-brushed bottle makes a welcome addition to any dressing table – #shelfie, anyone?

TOM FORD

Costa Azzurra Acqua eau de toilette

Perfect for: a Mediterranean mood  

Why: A fresher version of the original Costa Azzurra, this fragrance conjures a windswept walk along salty coasts with notes of a pine-filled forest. Lemon, juniper berries, pine needles and cypress oil (an aromatic fragrance known for its ability to uplift and invigorate) make this the one to reach for when you need a perfume pick-me-up.

 

Spring, for me, is all about bright light returning and new beginnings. I like fragrances that embody this. It needs to be uplifting and have a freshness to it compared to my winter scents. Like your clothing gets lighter in warmer months, for me, so does my fragrance.

– Lori Woodhouse, Director of Education for Tom Ford Beauty, Le Labo, Kilian Paris and Frédéric Malle

FLORAL STREET

Electric Rhubarb eau de parfum

Perfect for: fans of fruity florals

Why: Electric Rhubarb, from new-to-Selfridges vegan fragrance brand Floral Street, bottles up that feeling of sitting out in the garden after a sun-filled afternoon with a glass of Prosecco. Zesty rhubarb blends with flowers of gardenia, jasmine and frangipani for a sparkling, fruity floral that smells good enough to eat. 

BYREDO

Rose of No Man’s Land eau de parfum

Perfect for: giving rose a modern twist

Why:? As the name suggests, rose is the star of the show in this sophisticated scent by the cult Swedish brand. This grown-up take on the inherently feminine rose combines radiant raspberry blossom and pink pepper with rich white amber for a spicy, sensual scent that smells just as great on men as on women.
