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|
3 Valentino Valentina
|Floral/fruity/oriental: white flowers, white truffles, bergamot, berries, vanilla, amber|
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.|
