Scents to See You Into Spring

Like most I'm ready for Spring and a break from the dreary winter weather, as that won't be happening any time soon I'm reluctant to purchase or dig out extremely light floral and generally Spring appropriate scents.
However I do have a few recommendations that will carry you through the rest of winter and into Spring with ease.

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum was not a scent I had on my radar but one sniff and I was hooked. If you are looking for a new sensual fragrance that is both warm and comforting not to mention long lasting yet ultra feminine this is the way to go. Modern Muse is truly beautiful, floral without being powdery and woody without being masculine or overbearing. With juicy notes such as Exotic Mandarin and Honeysuckle Nectar it will remind you of sunnier climes...even if the weather suggests otherwise. Like myself Estee Lauder may not be your usual point of reference for fragrance but if you don't try this out you truly are missing out. Find it here via Debenhams - link.

Unsurprisingly Jimmy Choo Flash London Club makes my list - I truly adore this scent and think it is one everyone should at least try at their local counter when it launches later this month (26th). Basically it is a white sparkling floral that is some instances does remind me of Paco Rabanne Ultra Violet yet they are not identical. Jimmy Choo Flash London Club is a floral, fruity yet musk based perfume that takes inspiration from a bouquet of white flowers (perfect for when Spring does roll around) punctuated with sparkling top notes of litchi and bergamot. For what is being marketed as a night time fragrance it is very light and delicate in some aspects and despite what the packaging may indicate appropriate for day wear. Yes I love this scent...some may say a little too much.

Lastly we have my current favourite Jo Malone scent which has to be Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne
which is easily one of the most complex scents I have experienced. Sure it is dark, heedy, almost masculine and somewhat mysterious yet it always smells familiar. It has a fruity base yet is deep and vampy with tiny hints of spice trickling through which on paper would seem better suited to the colder months. However the fruity notes make it a great option for transitioning into Spring - when the mornings are still chilly and you aren't quite ready to pack away your mittens and scarf. It warms, comforts, uplifts and leaves you feeling great...all that from a scent. How can you say no? Find it here via House of Fraser - link.
