Why put the spotlight on one Spring fragrance when you can shine the spotlight on three eh!?

I’ve received a lot of messages over the past few weeks asking me to pick a favourite scent for the season so I’ve whittled it down to my favourite three below. 

Eagle eyed readers will notice that I’ve mentioned these all numerous times before. All three stand out from the crowd in my opinion and perfectly compliment the optimism, playfulness and hope that surrounds Spring. 

Highgrove Bouquet by Penhaligon’s

I love this fragrance now just as much as I did the first time I smelt it months ago. As the name suggests, it was inspired and created with Highgrove Gardens – His Majesty The King’s country estate – and is floral and fresh, without smelling too sweet. It’s woody notes of tuberose, cedarwood and musk add a subtle layer of sensuality too – the perfect all rounder for Spring.


Soleil de Provence by L’Artisan Parfumeur

How do I describe this one!? If you were to bottle up the feeling of sunshine on your cheeks, this perfume is what I imagine that smells like! Inspired by the striking mimosa flower that creates scenes of sunshine in Provence each year, with top notes of lemon and base notes of benzoin it smells charming and playful and makes you want to smile – an ideal fragrance to compliment the welcomed arrival of Spring sunshine.



Fleurs D’Oranger by Serge Lutens

Inspired by Morocco’s exquisite orange blossom trees that are thought to symbolise paradise and love, this perfume feels playful and light hearted and yet elegant and enchanting! With notes of orange blossom, jasmine and white rose, its unique combination instantly won me over and quickly became a favourite last year! Like Highgrove Bouquet, the fact that I’m still going on about it months after I first tried it speaks volumes.

    So worth the wait. Just asking if you have ever thought of owning your own scent you have such exquisite taste I am sure the perfume would be wonderful.

    Kind regards Susan
