If you’re still waiting for spring to… umm… spring (come on, tulips—we’re rooting for you), get your floral fix with these blossom-forward scents. Just like the best bouquets, they each feature a variety of blooms—and best of all, these arrangements are wilt-proof.
The bouquet: Forsythia, pink plumeria, and wild verbena
The dirt: This zesty, eco-friendly scent has more pep than a Venti Dark Roast, thanks to a citrus shot of Meyer lemon and Satsuma mandarin. Tropical hints of forsythia and pink plumeria round things out—and put a virtual lei around your neck.
The bouquet: Rose, jasmine, orange blossom, and white lily
The dirt: You know your grandmother’s musty old Eau de Rose? This isn’t that. The rose and jasmine notes are most prominent, but as the fragrance lingers, you’ll notice sultry hints of cognac and leather. It’s like starting the night with mimosas on nana’s porch and ending it with a whisky neat at your local watering hole.
The bouquet: Honeysuckle, gardenia, and jasmine
The dirt: If you’re looking for a fragrance so flowery you swear it came from a greenhouse, this is it. There are no musky undertones or fruity top notes—just a sweet honeysuckle scent blended with powdery gardenia and warm jasmine for a just-picked allure.
The bouquet: Jasmine and geranium
The dirt: Remember that week you spent in Italy when you woke up to the Tuscan sun shining through your open window, the scent of oranges wafting through? OK, so even if your passport is devoid of stamps, this sophisticated perfume will whisk you away somewhere warm with its concentrated medley of Italian blood orange, mandarin, Egyptian jasmine, and South African geranium.
The bouquet: Gardenia and jasmine
The dirt: This one’s for all those self-described “guy’s girls.” Super-femme notes of gardenia and jasmine are offset by earthy whiffs of sandalwood and musk for a vaguely masculine vibe that’s totally irresistible. Kind of like when you steal your boyfriend’s button-down.
