Dive into the Fresh Scents of Spring

Spring is a time when we are looking to make a change. Nature begins to wake up after a long winter sleep and everything begins to come alive with color. And you begin to look for a new perfume to add to your arsenal that is light, fresh, and ethereal.

For most of us, there are certain smells that just represent spring. Orange blossom is a time honored favorite by many (my hand is raised) or maybe you love that earthy fragrance right after it rains. For many around this area, it is the salty scent of a gentle sea breeze. Whatever notes you love, they just say spring is here and our olfactory senses are at once ignited!

But trying to find that magical scent in a bottle is a tall order. That is why we love the Fragrance Finder from Sephora. Answer six simple questions and they will recommend fragrances for you to check out. And we always recommend getting samples to try out as perfume smells differently on everyone. Just ask a Beauty Advisor at Sephora to make you sample to take home. We tested a few and here are our top 5 picks for spring.


Jo Malone London Orange Blossom Cologne

A great orange blossom scent just brings a smile to our face and Jo Malone Orange Blossom Cologne is spot on. It is described as “like in a shimmering garden oasis, clementine flower sparkles over a heart of orange blossom and water lily” with key notes of clementine flower, white lilac, and orriswood. Perfection in our opinion!


Maison Margiela Replica’ Beach Walk

True to its name, Beach Walk really does evoke the memory of strolling along the ocean. It is warm and familiar, and we were amazed how with one spray, we were instantly transported to spending a day in the warm Florida sun and playing in the surf. And lucky for us because this also comes in a rollerball, so we can keep it in our purse for a quick refresh!


Atelier Cologne Pacific Lime Absolue Pure Perfume

Pacific Lime Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume is the scent that dreams are made of. Fresh but with a citrus spin, hence the lime, eucalyptus, and sweet, creamy coconut. You are instantly transported to the tropics-now you just need a cocktail to accompany it!


Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt

Try Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne for a fresh and spirited twist. We were a little hesitant at first but we fell in love at first whiff! It is fresh, light and slightly woodsy. It is ideal if you are looking for a modern classic scent and sure to garner you many compliments.


Clean Reserve Acqua Neroli

Clean, sexy, intoxicating- if this how you want to smell then be sure to pick up this little gem from Clean. This is the perfect perfume that works in the office as well for a special night out. An instant classic that you will reach for long after spring and summer!

Scent is very personal and they can instantly bring back a fond memory of a special person or place we have been. We invite you to come to Sephora at Destin Commons and find your perfect spring scent!
