Some women have a signature scent they wear year-round. I prefer to switch up my fragrance like I do my wardrobe—changing it by season. So instead of swapping out your closets this year, why not find a new spring scent to help you transition into the warmer months?
To help narrow the search, I reached out to fragrance aficionado Pamela Castillo and beauty blogger Ann Colville Somma for their personal recommendations.
Know your notes
Pamela loves fragrances that are earthy and refreshing with notes of vetiver, violet, and fig leaf. Her picks: Dyptique Philosykos and Bois d'Iris by The Different Company. For those who can’t live without floral scents, try Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf.
Ann's favorites have an earthy, clean, and modern aroma. Her picks: Victoria's Secret Bombshell and Six Scents No 4 Ascent by Rad Hourani.
Tips and tricks
The top notes of a fragrance wear off quickly, revealing the long-lasting middle and base notes. When shopping for a fragrance, apply and wait at least 30 minutes before buying.
Fragrance wears off within 2-6 hours, so carry a perfume rollerball to reapply.
Customize your lotion by adding a drop or two of your favorite scent to it.
