my top three fragrances for spring…

28th March 2023
Looking for an elegant fragrance that stands out from the crowd? These are my favourite, unique perfumes for Spring...

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.


Interested in what I shone the spotlight on last?

    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

      Thank you so much Susan! I’m so glad you love it as much as I do! As for a future perfume, I’m certainly not opposed to the idea. Maybe one day! x

I’m in my golden era. Ad having nurtured my hair back to health with professional haircare, supplements and hair oiling I knew I didn’t have enough time to grow my hair back for Summer so the wonderful team at @greatlengthsuk enlisted @imy_hair to transform me into my Summer style for the next few months. For those that don’t know Great Lengths has always been my extension brand of choice, about 15 years ago I had them for 2.5years to help me grow my hair back after I experimented a little too much with my style. My hair grew back healthy and strong and I didn’t have to wish the time away as the extensions gave me the extra few inches I needed without damaging my hair. I will have these removed at the end of the summer to continue to grow my hair back with regular Diamond cuts.
