The best scents for spring


Florals and and cool musks are the smells to be wearing this season

There are three fragrance trends predicted for this year. They all have titles. Ready? 1 Kaleidoscope "a celebration of life… fruity florals, lush greens, a hint of citrus"; 2 Digital "inspired by social media… transparent florals, cool musks, sheer metallic accords", and 3 Elemental "earthy colours and rustic elegance… white florals and soft woods". So, everything. For spring, there are some gorgeous new perfumes out. My favourite is She Wolf, from Laurence Roullier White's Smell Bent brand (£45, – it smells of sweet citrus and "candies". I'm not sure which trend it fits into, but I'm going to call it 4 Sexy Wham Bar.


Lolita Lempicka L'aime £39 (out in April), Thameen Amber Room £145, See By Chloé Eau Fraîche £47, Balenciaga Rosabotanica £53, Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture £44, harrods.comsPowered by article was written by Eva Wiseman, for The Observer on Sunday 9th February 2014 10.00 Europe/London © Guardian News and Media Limited 2010
