Seductive spring scents

Fiona Hicks selects the best fragrances to see in the new season
The turn of the season brings with it a shift in mood and a whole host of new scents. The flowers are blooming – so what better time to change your fragrance?

‘In spring our senses are awakened to dewy, damp notes, of young green shoots emerging into the world as top notes on evocative woody fl orals,’ says Ruth Mastenbroek, expert perfumer and former President of the British Society of Perfumers.

Flowery fragrances are certainly abundant, but citrus, fruity and oriental notes abound too. Whether it’s day, night or an extra-special occasion, these scents are sure to put a spring in your step.
