Fine Fragrances

Ahhh, the smells of spring: blooming flowers, gentle breezes and freshly cut grass. The fragrances here are noteworthy attempts to bottle up the best scents of the season. (Hint: Mother’s Day is coming
up. Why not give flowers in a different form?)

replica flower market
Picture a flower market: petals crushed on the floor and buckets brimming with water and freshly cut stems. This is the inspiration behind the fragrance, which features notes of freesia, rose, jasmine and tuberose, packaged in an attractive bottle similar to an apothecary jar.
$126 for 3.4 oz. at Nordstrom and Sephora




l’occitane en provence
This is described as an ode to natural beauty and the wild grass dotted with thorny flowers at the heart of the Provençal landscape. The natural grass extract combines with notes of bramble, wild rose and white nettle—and the bottle itself adds a touch of spring to its surroundings.
$100 for 3 oz. at L’Occitane




flowerbomb midnight
Despite its darkness, this spray is a true floral perfume. The sensual fragrance is designed around night-blooming jasmine, which only blossoms when the day is done. Other notes include black currant, musk and pomegranate.
$165 for 3.4 oz. at Nordstrom, Sephora and Saks Fifth Avenue





An encapsulated bouquet: notes of hyacinth, iris, ylang-ylang, tulips, daffodils and more reveal the carats that shine within you (or so Cartier suggests). The bottle’s numerous facets catch the light for a beautiful addition to your bathroom counter.
$145 for 3.3 oz. at Nordstrom
