  20. koolchicken

    So many to pick from! But I think I like Hello Kitty or Daisy eau so fresh the best. Although I don’t usually care about the season when picking a fragrance. I just go with whatever will make me most happy that day.

  21. I love Flower bomb by Viktor & Rolf for springtime! Its so sweet and fresh and smells like Easter! :)

    Donna Karan Woman (black frosted bottle from 2012)
    Bond .9 New Haarlem or West Side Story.

  30. Megan

    I love the Tocca pefumes for spring especially Violette and Colette. Also chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere is lovely too and a bit fresher than standard No. 5. Lavanilla’s Vanilla Lavender is nice and light and the vanilla sweetens up the herbal note of the Lavender nicely. For distinctly springy scents the Pacifica line has some great finds, like the lilac and gardenia.

  31. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue! So fresh and clean smelling. Love it.

  32. Angelica

    BCBG- BCBG Max Azria perfume
    Also, Coach Poppy

  33. Avatar of Elle Elle

    Flower Bomb by Viktor and Rolf!!

  34. En Passant by Frederic Malle or Mimosa by Fragonard. Both very light and fresh smelling.

  35. Avatar of Mariella Mariella

    Jessica McClintock. What says “Spring” better than lily of the valley?

  36. Avatar of Chelsea Chelsea

    Chanel Chance Eau Tendre is great, but I’ve been hooked on L’Occitane’s Cherry Blosssom and Green Tea fragrances lately.

  37. Bronze Goddess by Estée Lauder and Jo Malone Orange Blossom

  38. Avatar of Rosie ROSIE

    Poppy by Coach or Clinique Happy is such a classic scent

  39. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    I don’t believe any perfume should have a particular season. Many fragrances are sold year-round, so I presume it’s okay to wear it as such. Also, as with makeup, “seasonal” scents may not be suitable for an individuals tastes, chemistry, lifestyle, etc.

    Perfume is a very personal thing, and one shouldn’t be made to feel awkward for not wearing the “right” scent for a specific time of year. I wear what feels right when I wake up in the morning, and choose from what I enjoy.

  40. My favorite is Florabotanica by Balenciaga! It has Turkish rose, cannabis, carnation, mint, amber and vetiver. It smells like an exotic garden but it’s soft at the same time. I love it!!

  41. Jennifer Lee

    Amazing Grace EdP– the best and springiest floral, hands down!

  42. Avatar of Jill AnGeLwInGz

    Tocca Giulietta and Tokyo Milk Gin & Rosewater.

  43. grlnxdor

    Versace Yellow Diamond, Bulgari Rose Essentielle and Cabotine De Gres.

  44. Avatar of Lauren Lauren

    I like Gucci Flora in Gorgeous Gardenia a lot. It reminds me a bit of Viva la Juicy or Polo 2, but maybe just not as strong.

  45. Elle

    Chanel Chance Eau Tendre ♥

  46. Mimi

    Definitely, it’s Chanel 1932. Glorious, feminine and oh so Chanel!

  47. Jeanie

    Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche and Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.

    • Jeanie

      Ooops, forgot to say why. Because they’re both very fresh and light, the Chanel being more feminine and the Tom Ford leaning more unisex.

  48. Avatar of Aida Aida

    Coach Flower. Love!

  49. Francesca

    Orange Sanguine by Atelier

  50. Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey

    • Avatar of Chiara chiara

      Vicky, youre so right! Its such a lovely scent. Light but still sophisticated. I also like Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom, Tocca Giulietta, Burberry Brit Sheer, Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue, and Acqua di Parma Magnolia Nobile.

  51. Kendra

    I’m loving Candy by Prada right now, viva la juicy is another go to for me during spring. :)

  52. Dolce Gabbana Light Blue!

  53. Em

    Marc Jacobs Daisy Fresh. Absolute LOVE! Especially for spring.

    Lancome Tresor in Love

  56. Laura

    Coach’s Signature perfume smells exactly like lilacs to me and definitely makes me think of spring!

  57. Avatar of Jasmin Jasmin

    I love Dior Addict Eau Fraiche for spring. It’s fruity and floral because of the pomegranate and freesia. I’m addicted to it :)

  58. nth

    Kenzo Jungle le Tigre

  59. CristinaO

    Light Blue by Dolce e Gabbana ,for me is the perfect smell for spring

  60. Anu

    Estée Lauder pleasures

  61. Avatar of Lulu Lulu

    Acqua di Goia by Armani and Valentina Assoluto by Valentino. Very different perfumes but both gorgeous for spring!

  62. Mitzi

    I would have to say Burberry Brit sheer…it has nice and clean smell..

  63. Madeline

    I just tried Jardin sur le Toit by Hermes… Oh my, my, my! Different and fresh! But I love Estee Lauder Plasures for the spring, so light and yummy.

  64. Avatar of Taylor Taylor

    I just got a sample of Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber and I love it! I don’t know if it’s necessarily “spring/summer”, but it might be my new purchase!

  65. Snackmeister

    My most-loved spring fragrance has been around since the 1970s, I believe. Its name is Eau de Givenchy. It’s a floral with quite a bit of “green” in it and the green part makes me think of daffodil and tulip stems. I only wear it in the spring, before it becomes too hot, because it doesn’t smell quite right to me for very warm weather.

  66. Sharona

    Bottega Veneta’s Legere!! It is wonderful. Spicy and floral! Love it, love it, love it!

  67. Avatar of Kathleen Kathleen C.

    I love Clinique Happy Heart and Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue!

  68. Bana

    Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle, I’m 21 and this perfume is very sophisticated but youthful. I love it.

  69. Melissa C

    Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom and Jo Malone’s Blue Agave and Cacao layered – they were my wedding combination. So fresh – honestly I wear them all year long – but perfect for spring and summer.

  70. Samantha

    Burberry Weekend.

  71. Ollko

    Dior Addict Eau Fraiche and Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic – They are both fruity, fresh, enough cool, not so warm as winter perfumes.

  72. Clinique Happy Heart for a warm day in the spring/summer, it just smells like that time of year to me, I can’t really explain it. Miss Dior also smells like spring to me, but I love to wear it any time of year. I also love Chanel Coco Mademoiselle for again, any season of the year.

  73. I’m a little late to the party here, but I’ve been loving the new Flowerbomb release. It almost smells like the original, but there’s a little something extra going on in the top and middle notes that I really enjoy. Unfortunately, it’s not different enough in the drydown for me to buy a whole bottle of it (yet) because I haven’t used up the huge bottle of the original one my husband got me for Mother’s Day one year.
