Smells like spring! The sweetest scents for spring


The grass is turning greener, the birds are chirping and the weather is (finally!) getting warmer.  If you are like me, you like to switch up your fragrances for the seasons.  Some perfumes I only wear in the winter and others are reserved strictly for the hotter weather.

I don’t typically do a lot of fragrance posts as it’s not like you can smell these scents through your computer screen, but if you are looking for something sweet, light, and summery, here is my list of my favourite scents for this season (make sure you take a sniff next time you’re at Sephora!).


Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb

A staple in anyone’s collection, this cult favourite is made up of Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.

When I first sniffed Flowerbomb years ago, it didn’t appeal to me, but since everyone and their mom raves about it, I gave it another go during the Sephora VIB sale recently and fell in love.  It had to be mine.  I have the little 20 ml bottle of this scent, but I know I’ll be picking up a full-size when I run out.

Viva La Juicy

Viva La Juicy should be a staple in everyone’s collection.  I have been wearing this for a couple of years now, and although it’s more of a summery scent, I sport this year round.  I picked my bottle at the Juicy outlet in Vegas, so whenever I sniff it I always get that Vegas feeling (take me backkkkkkkk).  This one may be the first perfume I ever use up since I love it so much.

This sweet scent has notes of Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Praline.

Chloe Eau de Parfum

This sweet scent is for all ages.  With its notes of pink peony, lychee, honey, rose, and more, it suits any woman.  I brought a mini of this bottle with me to Europe, so whenever I give it a sniff I get flashbacks of London nights and Parisian days.

Notes include Pink Peony, Freesia, Lychee, Magnolia Flower, Lily of the Valley, Rose, Cedarwood, Amber, Honey.

Yves Rocher Collection Été 

Launching in June 2014 as part of their 2014 Mediterranean Sea collection, this eau de toilette is a perfect everyday scent.  Since it’s full of citrus, I love spraying this all over after the shower on a lazy day or after the gym.  The scent is very fresh and light so it’s hard to go overboard with it.

Notes include bergamot, lemon, and mandarin with citrus flowers.  You can purchase it online at for C$29.  The scent also comes in a shower gel (C$3.95), which contains over 98 per cent natural ingredients, making it perfect for layering!

Philosophy body wash

Philosophy Hooray for Sorbet trio

For those who like to start in the shower with their scents, keep an eye out for Philosophy’s Hooray for Sorbet trio (C$31) of their fabulous shower gel, bubble bath, and shampoo products.  The set (which is housed in an uber-cute faux ice cream box), contains three flavours – Mango Sorbet, Green Apple Sorbet, and Pink Melon Sorbet. The moisturizing, multitasking formula provides a rich, foaming lather to gently cleanse and condition, leaving skin and hair feeling soft and smelling sweet, without the calories.

I’ve been loving all these scents so much that it’s hard to choose just one to wear every morning.
