Spring Fragrance Picks...

Well, girls, spring is "in the air" and so with that come the new spring fragrances.  We all know that fragrance is such a personal choice and not all fragrances are universally flattering.  It's all about skin chemistry and what type of scent with which you like to surround yourself.  Not to mention, a beautiful bottle and an intriguing ad campaign are good selling points too :) 
So, here are my 10 personal  picks for new spring fragrances... 

1  Bulgari Omnia Coral

Floral fruity:  hibiscus and berries

Floral citrus:  rose and green citrus
2  Chloe L'eau de Chloe

Gorgeous bottle!

4  Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina

Sweet floral fruity:  jasmine, rosy peony, red currant, panna cotta (sweet cream)


5  Flora by Gucci Garden Collection

Gorgeous Gardenia, Gracious Tuberose, Glorious Mandarin, Generous Violet, and Glamorous Magnolia 

In addition to the main floral notes, these five fragrances have various fruity top notes and oriental base notes.

6  EVAmour by Eva Longoria

Floral fruity musk:  bergamot, red currant, pink florals, musk (exclusively launched on HSN on March 29th). For every fragrance purchase, $1 is donated to the Eva Longoria Foundation.

  1. Tresor Midnight Rose is my favorite out of all of them. I'm not big on floral fragrances though.

  2. i don't wear perfume anymore. it started causing me a headache whenever i wore it so i stopped! =( but i would love to find a nice light one for special occasions! =)
