Eau naturel: Fresh scents for spring

Fresh-cut grass, blooming petals and breezy days—the natural fragrances of this time of year register a refreshing note to our senses. These scents embody the season while sitting pretty on our vanity.

Tom Ford

A splash of Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford captures the perfect beachy scent with notes of Tunisian neroli, Italian bergamot, citrus, lavender, rosemary and amber, and the turquoise bottle takes us seaside.

$295 for 100 ml., Kiki

Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana’s new perfume Dolce Rosa Excelsa is a romantic bouquet of rose, lily, amaryllis and daffodil. Notes of cashmeran, musk and sandalwood add sensual spice.

$93 for 1.6 oz., Dillard’s

Kate Spade

Live Colorfully by Kate Spade New York is a fun, flirty fragrance in which gardenia is offset by an unexpected burst of vanilla, coconut water and amber musk.

$75 for 1.7 oz., Ulta


Valentino’s Valentina is a complex array of scents inspired by Italian “it girls.” Top notes of Calabrian bergamot and white alba truffle give way to Amalfi orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine and wild strawberry, followed by base notes of amber and cedar.

$88 for 1.7 oz., Dillard’s

Bond No. 9

High Line by Bond No. 9 is the essence of spring. Scents of bergamot, purple love grass, Indian rhubarb, red leaf rose, tulips, grape hyacinth and bur oak transport us to a field of wildflowers.
