Every season has its own distinct character, reminding us of how the changes that take place in nature have a powerful impact on our everyday lives. Spring, the season when the earth shakes off its chilly mantle of winter snow and begins to show signs of renewed life, is associated with new beginnings in every area of our lives. Is it any wonder spring has been the inspiration of so many luxury perfumes to be found here on Alyaka?
It is natural that many people instinctively gravitate to a niche fragrance with green and floral notes at a time when the weather begins to turn milder, the days get longer and the air carries on it the delicate fragrance of blossoms. A complex and intriguing floral composition is perfect, such as the Blanc Violette Fragrance from Histoires de Parfums. Its delicate and evocative iris accord note mingle with romantic notes of violet leaf, sandalwood and ylang ylang.
Some find a spicy and exotic variation on the floral theme suits their personal style and Teo Cabanel’s Alahine Fragrance has held a place in the hearts of lovers of quality perfumes since its creation in 1910. Here, more than 40 fragrant ingredients, including lavender, cardamom, jasmine and white musk, are blended to produce a rare perfume of unique warmth and beauty.
Woody notes are also much loved by those who appreciate luxury perfume and these can offer a distinctive twist on spring themes by using fragrances of the forest. One top niche women’s perfume for spring is L’Art de la Guerre, by Jovoy. Replete with notes of fern, oak moss and patchouli, they combine to create a unique and heartwarming fragrance.
Woody notes are also provided by the Aqua Sextius Perfume from Jul et Mad, although they may not be immediately obvious. From zesty and invigorating top notes of bergamot and citrus fruits, this imaginative fragrance moves on to warmer notes of fig and mimosa before taking your senses deep into the forest with base notes of amber and the fragrances of cedar and oak moss. It offers a completely different take on woody notes, which goes to show the dazzling variety of ways in which the fragrances that characterise springtime can be interpreted at the hands of different perfumers.
