Best Spring Fragrances

The spring is here and it is time to talk about best perfumes for spring. I wrote about this in the last years too so I’m trying to mention new perfumes here.

Best Spring Fragrances for Women

1.Miu Miu

Main Accords are:

Green, Floral, Rose, White Floral, and citrus

Promising Review: “This may be my favorite perfume ever! The floral opening is less than unique, but still lovely and well-blended. What does it for me is an interesting peppery-ness in the dry down that I can’t get enough of. This surely comes from the wood note. It’s def a unique element that may not be compatible with everyone’s tastes or body chemistry. I, however, am in love <3”

2.Gucci Bamboo

Main Accords are: White Floral, Citrus, Woody, Yellow floral, and Sweet

Promising Review: ” Love the scent, its fresh but mild. Perfect for spring day wear. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because I don’t feel like it lasts more than a couple of hours. It’s worth it for the time you can smell it though!”

3. Christian Dior J’adore

Main Accords are: Floral, Fruity, White Floral, Sweet and aquatic

Promising Review: “Beautiful perfume, I find it fresh like being on a beach its not an old Lady perfume. I’m In love with it, I can’t stop smelling my wrist its such a lovely scent and Long lasting on me which is rare!”

4.Vince Camuto Bella

Main Accords are: Citrus, White Floral, Amber, Animalic and fresh spicy

Promising Review: ” Really like this! Instant tropical fruity piña colada in a bottle! And what a bottle! It’s definitely one of the prettiest perfume bottles I’ve come across.”

5. Tory Burch Absolu

Main Accords are: Woody, White floral, Soft spicy, floral, tuberose, green

Promising Review: “Fruity Berry opening. But more sophisticated and matured, not candy-like. Comes off to me as pears. sweet slightly medicinal finish, Long lasting, even in hot Florida weather.
Not bad, goes with the fashion line. Doesn’t really stand out for me.
Longevity: Long lasting
sillage: moderate.”

Best Spring Fragrances for Men

1.Chanel Allure Homme Sport

Main Accords are: Citrus, Aromatic, aldehydic, marine, fresh spicy and vanilla

Promising Review: “Everything about this one is great. Even now in the colder autumn weather I think it’s still appropriate because of the creamy tonka bean and vanilla. The go-to fragrance of all time!”

 2. Acqua Di Gio Profumo

Main Accords are: Aromatic, Marine, Fresh spicy, Balsamic, smoky and citrus
Promising Review: ” Very nice scent, similar to the original one, but while the original would be mostly used day time in summer, this one I would say day and night. Plus I see nothing wrong as time goes on things need to get updated otherwise would be dated and that’s what they did to the original.”

3. Paco Rabanne Invictus

Main Accords are: Citrus, Marine, Aromatic, Fresh Spicy, and woody

Promising Review: ” Though I detest the bottle, this guy is fantastic! Don’t throw this one out because of the cheesy marketing – it is a great fragrance. Take Acqua di Gio and Individuel and mix them and you get this. Great longevity – just a really great fragrance.”

4. Versace Dylan Blue

Main Accords are: Citrus, fresh spicy, musky, amber and balsamic
Promising Review: “I never wore cologne because I couldn’t find one I liked enough to wear consistently and purchase…I wear this everyday and can’t go a day without getting a compliment on this scent!”

5. Bvlgari Aqva Amara

Main Accords are: Citrus, aquatic, balsamic, fresh, white floral, and smoky

Promising Review: ” Its an aquatic citrusy masculine fragrance. It opens with a blast of citrus (I swear i can smell orange blossom in here). Its a compliment getter and suits i guess the casual wear in high summer heat. Its a sexy fragrance, appreciated by the people around you more than appreciated by the person who wore it. Masculine, not unisex.”

B9 by Bond No 9

B9 by Bond NO9B9 by Bond No.9 is a fairly new fragrance from the house of Bond No.9. The inspiration for the name and scent of this perfume comes from the brand’s first store address in New York, 9 Bond Street.  The perfume bottle showcases the new logo for their brand, it is star shaped, the signature look for Bond No.9, and, purple colored. This unisex fragrance is very fresh, fruity and very long lasting.

The Fragrance is a well-balanced mixture of the following notes:

Top Notes

Citrus, Saffron

Heart Notes

Gardenia Leaves, Jasmine, Orchid, Agarwood

Base notes

Amber, Sandalwood, Oakmoss, Musk, Vetiver

What others are saying about it:

“Thank you Bond!!!! I feel as though this was created specifically for me. I’m addicted to the smell of Chanel Gardenia (Exclusif), but it is too feminine for me to wear. B9 is the perfect fix. It has the elegance of the gardenia but is strengthened by the amber and musk. These big bottles usually last me a very long time, but I’ve been spraying on B9 everyday since I purchased it. Safe enough for the office, prestigious enough for special occasions and sensual enough for date nights. Another winner from Bond no 9!!”   – A.R

“B9 is a complex and disarming floral-woody fragrance that cultivates a deep friendship between feminine floral notes (gardenia, jasmine, orchid) and masculine woody/mossy notes (sandalwood, oud, and vetiver are very noticeable). It’s an unusual take on the fleshy gardenia motif, rendering it a swagger and a sensational genderless beauty. Here are traditional notes presented in an innovative and exquisitely nuanced way that had me fielding all manner of inquiries as to its name.”  -Chromatic



Date Makeup!

As promised, we are all about Valentine’s Day this month. Here are some date makeup  ideas. Also, choose your scent accordingly for the maximum impact.


If you want a sexy look go with the bold red lipstick and intense eyes! If you want your scent to compliment your look, go for Love in Black by Creed. This is a very mysterious and sexy smell that your date would love.


date makeup

This one is for a fun and unique look. Hot pink lips and blue mascara, What is more fun than that? Wear Love Hope Denim by True religion. The caramel note will keep your date sweet and easy.

date makeup

Do the Nude lips and beige eyeshadow for an effortless, chic look. With this look I recommend Fatale Intense by Agent Provocateur. The rich and sweet scent of this perfume will make up for your underplayed look.

Date Makeup

This bohemian look is one of my favorites. Bold eyebrows and dark lips are all you need for this look. What better to complete this look than sweet and innocent Olympea by Paco Rabbane.


Happy Dating!
