Summary of our favorite Spring Season Fragrances
What is the best Spring Aroma?
As stated earlier, spring is the transition to warmer weather and new life ‘springing’ forth. Look for top notes that feel “green” like fir, green leaf, and melon. Also look for fragrance like lavender, ginger lily, Rose, or other spring flowers. For the undertone you can’t go wrong with moss or patchouli to give a hint of a wet and woodsy vibe like spring time in the forest.
Which type of fragrances should I choose for Spring?
Lighter fragrances are usually best for spring. Stick with a Eau de Cologne, Eau Fraiche or Eau de Toilette, that latter will give you the longest lasting scene. Typically you would save the stronger Eau de Parfum or Perfume for fall and winter.

Curve is a very light and agreeable fragrance that can be worn for most occasions. The unlikely paring of Cactus and Lavender as top notes are what separate this product for us.
Since Curve has a great price point, it puts this fragrance in reach for most people. There are a variety of Curve scents by Liz Claiborne, but this one is the classic one to wear.
This is a top fragrance that you’ll enjoy through spring season and can double as a summer fragrance.

Perfumer Phillippe Romano brings you First Instinct for Abercrombie and Fitch who also have the Fierce product though there have been rumors of it being discontinued.
This product has a slight fruiter bouquet than the Fierce and still has reasonable longevity. The top notes of Melon and Gin are an intriguing combination that is intoxicating.

Calvin Klein Obsession Homme
- Fiery. Intense. Provocative.
- The pure essence of masculinity
- Between love and madness lies obsession
Calvin Klein’s Obsession pour homme is a classic scent. We had difficulty choosing between this men’s fragrance and Calvin Klein’s Eternity . Both are fantastic scents for spring, we ended up choosing this one because of the bright fragrance of mandarin and lavender paired with the “wet” earthy tones of patchouli.
If your looking for a traditional spring season essence, you can’t go wrong with Obsession.

Burberry makes some terrific colognes for men.. Touch, is no exception. As the peppery top notes fade, the base note of vetiver gives a hint of uncut grass on a warm day perfect for that spring feeling. The price is a little more for this product but we feel it is worth it has it.
