  1. Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. My favourite perfume for…. always! =)

  2. Gianfranco Ferré – In the mood for love

  3. Alexis

    Imp by Haus of Gloi or L’Imperatrice by D&G both fruity and fresh.

  4. Sky C

    Burberry Brit Sheer!

  5. Kaylee

    My perfume collection is large, so I change it up a lot. But the two I go for the most in Springtime are Juicy Couture’s “Couture Couturej and Miss Dior Cherie.

  6. Lucie

    Wearing The Beat this moment! I now gravitate towards warmer oriental-y scents, but The Beat was my first fragrance EVER and I still like to spritz some on when I need a citrusy burst of energy!

  7. Sky C

    Burberry Brit Sheer

  8. MaryBeth

    Turquatic by MAC. So sad they discontinued it :(

  9. i don’t really use specific perfumes for specific seasons, i just wear whatever i like. however, my most spring/summer-like perfumes are burberry classic and d&g l’impératrice :)

  10. Laura by laura biagotti. Such a lovely scent, makes me feel fresh and cheerful :) Perfect for spring.

  11. Sandy

    L’air du temps. My all time favorite, love it!

  12. Ali

    Marc Jacobs Daisy for sure!

    • Wendy M.

      Me too!
      I usually try out different perfumes once I run out, but I LOVE Daisy by Marc Jacobs and have been wearing it since it came out. <3
      I also love Juicy by Juicy Couture (I think that's the name lol, it was the very first one). :)

  13. Kelly C.

    Parfums Delrae Mythique.

  14. Jennifer

    My perfume collection has grown extensively over the years and so I am always changing things up and not sticking with one scent the whole season. But I just got Calvin Klein Beauty and am LOVING it!!! It will definitely be my number 1 this year. :). Viva la juicy and Davidoff cool water game are also very lovely. :-D

  15. anonymous

    none! spring is full of natural beautiful fresh air and growing stuff and I don’t want perfume undermining the enjoyment of it

    :-)

  16. Currently I’m very fond of Marc Jacob’s Biscotti, it’s nice and light (but doesn’t last!). I also like Nina Ricci’s Nina. I’m not much of a perfume person, it took me long enough to find two I like. Citrus top note and musk end note seems to be my preference. Something gourmand-y. But I hate Thierry Mugler’s Angel.

    Sometimes I’ll go to Sephora and spray one on each wrist and in the crook of each elbow and wear them around. I think I’ve tried most of the ones in there.

  17. dulce

    DAISY by Marc Jacob

  18. Susan

    Miracle by Lancome, it’s nice and airy and not overly sweet and fruity, very fresh, been wearing it for years actually

  19. Pleun

    Miss Dior Chèrie or V&R Flower Bomb :)

  20. Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar, Harajuku Lovers G, Lavanila Vanilla Coconut.I love scents that smell like tanning oil.

    • lexi

      LOL. I just got a slammin deal on G at CVS…they had a two set for $19.99 of the .33 oz bottles, and it was 50% off – so I got two bottles for $9!

    • Stephanie

      Me too. Am a fan of LaVanila’s Vanilla Coconut. Too bad it’s not sold here in Malaysia. I get mine when friends come visit. Try Laura Mercier’s Almond Coconut and Creme Brulee EDT if you haven’t already.

  21. Tressie

    Has to be the new Versace “Vanitias” I think that is how you spell it. Oh my god it is SO AWESOME. It reminds me of Giorgio from the eighties….but others didn’t think so. One person who smelled it called it PERFECT.
    It’s beautiful. Check it out!

  22. Leenie

    Ellen Tracy! But I’d wear it in any season….It’s one of my top five favorites

  23. DKNY Delicious Blossom & CLEAN Outdoor Shower Fresh are the best of the best for spring/summer I think =)

  24. MaryJo

    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria in Flora Nymphea – citrusy burst with a honeyed white floral note. Never quite smelled anything else like it and believe me, I’ve got quite a collection!

  25. Jeanie

    Chanel Chance eau fraiche, it smells fresh and light and lovely :)

  26. definetly dkny be delicious (the green one)!

  27. nan

    Estee Lauder- Beyond Paradise

    seems like Burberry is a hit, will try that soon.

  28. Mel

    Clinique Happy Heart and Biotherm Eau d’Énergie.

  29. Christina

    My all-around the year favorite perfume, but I use it especially in spring: DKNY Woman.

  30. Ana G.

    Clarins Eau des Jardins or Eternity from Calvin Klein (this one is all year round).

  31. livnzoe

    biotherm’s eau pure, or eau paradise!!

  32. Katie

    lola from macro jacobs. it’s like pure flowers with a spice to it.

  33. Lucia

    Flora by Gucci

  34. Alexandra

    I love wearing the Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pivoine Magnifica , it’s smell exactly like fresh peonies ! Now it has been discontinued which is so bad cause it’s one of their best fragrances !

  35. Arantzazu

    I really use only 3 perfumes:
    For everyday, Agua Lavanda Puig (it’s a toilet water, with lavender scent).
    And for special occasions, Chanel nº5 or Eau de Rochas.
    That’s all =)

  36. Alisha

    I love Viva la juicy by Juicy Couture!

  37. Anett

    For ever Guerlain Champs-Elysees

  38. Ula

    Lancôme – Trésor in Love :)

  39. Amy

    sjp nyc has to be one of my all time favorites, buuut being an ulta employee, i have the “luxury” of smelling a lot, so my picks would have to be daisy by marc jacobs, angels and demons by Givenchy, and bright crystal by versace. :) however, escada did release a new scent called taj sunset and it smells SOOOOO good lol almost too good, but i think its more of a summer scent.

  40. Hills

    Chanel NO 5!!!!! Best!!!!!!!!

  41. Jadetive

    Salvatore Ferragamo’s Incanto Charms. Light, floral, slightly sweet. Love it! :)

  42. z

    Auric blends egyptian goddess perfume roll on. I wear this all the time.

  43. Classique

    Flowers by Kenzo, Body by Victoria, or Pure White Linen by Estee Lauder

    • lexi

      Body By Victoria is my JAM! I have that and wear it year-round. It is just so fresh and awesome smelling. I’m happy that the VS hair stuff smells like that!

  44. Germa

    Alltime favorite: Lancome Tresor! It always make me feel very feminine.

    But for spring I use DKNY Delicious also a lot.

  45. lexi

    hmmm – I would say that things like Gucci EDP II (the pink one) usually speaks to me that time of year. So do things like Ralph Lauren Romance, and maybe LAMB.

  46. Trish

    Usually it’s Coach: Legacy. But now I’m totally in love with Michael Kors: Palm Beach for spring!

  47. Pleasures by Estee Lauder. It just brings back such memories…… :)

  48. Melissa

    Chanel Chance Eau Tendre or Chloé Eau de Toilette. They’re not really just for spring, as I tend to use them all year round.

  49. Svetlana

    Armani Code (the white one)

  50. listenlikethieves

    I’m loving Pure Vanilla by Lavanila these days, in the rollerball package, for precise pulse-point application. Also Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant!

  51. NEKTARIA

    Burberry sport, DKNY and Miss Dior Cherie! Ithink they are great! Time for some floral scents!

  52. Frances

    I love Dior J’Adore L’Absolu, a totally different animal from the original J’Adore. Rich, smooth, floral, it almost smells like a perfumed oil.

  53. Valerie

    For early spring Mandragore Poupre (Annick Goutal) is perfect it’s citrusy but still have the spicynest of the mandragore and the anis. And when slowly but surely its starting to be hotter outside Stella Sheer is the perfect perfume for those lazy weekend days :)

  54. Lady Di.

    Flowerbomb! I wear it all the time!

  55. ChristineD

    Harajuku Girls G by Gwen stefani…Burberry Sport…Juicy Couture Couture

  56. Whitney

    Vera Wang Princess (Might be my favorite for every season!)

  57. I don’t choose perfume by season.. But I guess it’ll be Versace Crystal Noir. I’m completely into that scent at the moment!

  58. Vivi

    Cherry blossom Guerlain ou vanille extrême CSP

  59. Ru

    Lancome Miracle or D&G Blue

  60. Olivia A

    Prada Infusion d’Iris (EdP), Chanel No. 5 (EdT), and L’Artisan Parfumeur Dzing! – not together, of course!

    The Infusion d’Iris is a lovely sheer floral which I find rather appropriate for spring.
    The No. 5 is just so classy and well blended, I love it all year round!
    And the Dzing!, well, it reminds me a bit of summer and fall – the warmer months. And by spring, I’ll need that reminder :-)

  61. Nora

    Obvious answer: Marc Jacobs Daisy, and the pink MAC perfume. :)

  62. I love Paris by YSL and they used to come out with a springtime version every year (sadly, not for a while now), so I have a few of those, also Japanese Cherry Blossom by The Body Shop is a good spring fragrance. :)

  63. Naz

    Prada…Infusion D’Iris

  64. Hay Mich

    Princess by Vera Wang

  65. Christina

    I like The Beat for transitioning from winter to spring, but I’d have to say my favorite for spring is Marc Jacobs Daisy. We get cold and snow from November to late March, so a nice floral is always in order when the weather finally makes a change! Also, I had been obsessing over Flowerbomb for a long long time, and finally got it for Christmas, so I have a feeling I will be wearing that for spring as well. :)

  66. Dianna

    BVLGARI Jasmine Noir

    • Dianna*

      That’s my favourite perfume (of the moment)! It’s kind of creepy that we have the same name (spelling too) and like the same perfume… haha. I also love Ralph by Ralph Lauren for summer.

  67. demosthenesval7

    balenciaga love it for spring

  68. Mirna

    Light Blue from D & G

  69. Courtney

    I wear a different perfume every day. Just depends on my mood. But I’m more likely to wear florals and ozone scents like BPAL’s Torture Queen, Snow White, One to Tie Two to Win, Dorian, or Lightning.

  70. prada infusion d’iris! it’s so light, ladylike, and pretty. perfect for spring

  71. RAS

    Lately I’ve been gravitating toward Kate Spade’s Twirl and Stella McCartney’s Stellanude (although that one is a year-round winner, as far as I’m concerned).

  72. Sarah

    Guerlain’s Insolence! It’s my favorite all the time, but it is more suited to spring, as it’s a berry-floral. I love the way the scent melds with my skin :)

  73. Jenna

    Pure by DKNY

  74. monika-luiza

    chanel allure but I love this all year round and waer it for almost 14 years now :D no, seriosely I love this scent when it’s getting warmer.

    but other than my “signatur scent” I really like Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert Extreme for spring

  75. Brandi

    I love Flowerbomb or Miss Dior Cherie for spring!

  76. lazeny

    Guerlain Champs -Elysees

  77. Natasha

  81. Hannah

    DKNY Be Delicious and SJP NYC :)

  82. Michelle

    Gucci Flora- love this one all time!

    On a side note, not even kidding, I just picked up a 1.7 oz. bottle of The Beat at Walmart for $7!!! Found it in a clearance section but it didn’t have a clearance sticker on it

  83. Debra

    Lancome’s Hypnose

  84. CeeBee

    I usually wear either Pure Poison or J’Adore by Dior – both a florally and feminine, though the PP is a little sexier and J’Adore more girly, but lately I’ve found myself gravitating toward Still by J.Lo. It’s really lovely!

  85. Suzanne

    Fracas – always, although I have just tried Paco Rabanne Lady Million, awesome!

  86. Denise

    Serge Lutens Un Lys a pretty lily fragrance or Cristalle by Chanel. I change perfumes everyday according to the temperature or my mood.

  87. Rhiannon

    Coach Poppy!

  88. diana

    prada fleur de oranger

  89. jen

    Hanae Mori! Love that perfume.

  90. emily

    Burberry Beat – I have for fall. My favorite parfumes for spring are: Chopard Wish Turqouise Diamond, Gucci edpII

  91. Meg

    Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture … always xD

  92. Cool water summer breeze or nina by nina ricci. I’m big on fruity scents.

  93. Basema

    Mine will have to be Miss Dior Cherri

  94. Liz

    Fresh’s Sugar Lychee for me, :). Love how light and non-overpowering it is.

  95. Tania

    Clinique Happy In Bloom 2009, I pay an arm and a leg for it online seeing as its discontinued now, but it’s the most prettiest, sexiest scent EVER. I tried the 2010 version, but it was very very green and nothing like 2009. Wish they would make the 2009 version permanant :(

  96. Deb

    I LOVE Joe Malone Vanilla & Anise.
