As the temperature rises and the flowers start to bloom, these are the first signs that spring is coming — unless you’re living in a hot climate country. You may not be able to feel it temperature-wise, but everything else from decor, clothing, accessories, makeup, and fragrances would be spring-ready.

There is a vast difference between seasonal scents. Fall fragrances for example are more cool, musky and heavy on earthy tones with little hints of spices. These represent the cold fall season, where temperatures drop just a tad and leaves start turning brown. As for spring, floral scents are used to celebrate flowers blooming.

However there are more than just flowers in bottles. Like any other fragrances, the floral ones too have different depths to them, starting from the first note, middle note and base note. These are what gives the fragrance its character, making each of them unique.

In this list of floral fragrances, we have a good mix of characters. Light and refreshing, citrus floral fragrance like the Tiffany & Co.’s and Lancôme’s Miracle Secret. If you opt for something full-bodied, Escada’s latest addition is a good, bold option.

But what these floral fragrances also have in common is that they will help you ease into summer fragrances when the time comes. Here’s more.

1
Escada's Celebrate N.O.W

Paying an olfactory homage to the female spirit, Celebrate N.O.W is a fragrance to celebrate women’s courage. Using a dynamic fusion of natural accords to represent positivity, joy, nature, and nature of women, the scent builds from warm cinnamon and tonka bean, with blooming magnolia at the heart with a touch of spiciness from ginger.

Tiffany and Co.'s Tiffany Eau De Parfum

Like the brand; Tiffany & Co.’s newest fragrance is a representation of love. The scent opens with citrusy vert de mandarine then falls into the middle note: noble iris. It ends with musky Patchouli. The bottle’s base is faceted to resemble the famous 128.54 carat “Tiffany Diamond” and its shoulders are made to mirror the popular Lucida diamond engagement ring.

Lancôme's Miracle Secret

The story of Miracle continues, Miracle Secret is the third creation from Lancôme (after the first Miracle EDP and Miracle Blossom). It’s a citrusy floral signature, with sparkling freshness of bergamot combined with pear accord, then reveals its main note, jasmine bouquet — which is exclusively created for Lancôme by three leading perfumers. The scent is enhanced by musk vanilla signature.

The love story continues. Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme is the ultimate partner of Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme. There are three hero scents in this fragrance that signifies sensuality and romance: blueberry, Bulgarian rose and goldenwood. Blueberry for its juiciness, while Bulgarian rose is a rich and intense floral essence with a spicy finish, lastly goldenwood is used as a link to the Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme.
