Top 5 Spring Fragrances

By guest blogger, Maria Barillaro

Spring is here and it’s time to bring sexy back with the hottest new scents of the season. Here are our picks no matter what your scent personality:


1. Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs ($85)
The original Daisy scent is a modern classic, so it’s no surprise that Daisy Eau So Fresh has topped my fragrance wish list. The light flowery scent marries the elegance and sophistication of its original counterpart with the soft and subtle feel of a chic, understated aroma. This trendy spring fragrance, with its feminine appeal, is perfect for the gal who secretly loves to be the centre of attention.

2. Halle Berry Reveal ($35)
I know what you’re thinking: “A celebrity fragrance? Say whaaaaat?” Believe me, no one is more surprised at my new obsession than me. I have never found a celeb scent I actually wanted to wear until Reveal made its way to my door step. Juicy peach and honeydew melon notes over a seductive musk base encompass the sexiness and modern sophistication that is Halle Berry (love her!). The perfect balance between sweet and chic this enchanting aroma is ideal for the lady who loves to flaunt her sex appeal.

3. Playboy Play It Spicy ($25)
I am officially in love with this new fragrance from the Playboy Collection, which consists of two other scents: Plat It Lovely and Play It Sexy. The spicy aroma of this scent is made up of ingredients that suit the springtime better than anything else: pomegranate, pink berries, tiger lily, passion flower and vanilla. It’s a delicate scent with a seductive and powerful feel to it. I recommend this spring newbie for the woman who likes to look and feel sexy but is also strong and fearless. Bonus: It’s wallet-friendly.

4.  Harajuku Lovers G of the Sea Limited Edition ($49)
Aside from the fact that this Gwen Stefani creation is totally adorable, it’s the perfect combination of floral woody musk, freesia, peony, jasmine and amber. This scent speaks to the gal who’s fun, flirty, youthful and energetic and ideal for spring (which I believe is eventually going to get here).

5. Prada Infusion de Rose ($120)
If luxury scents are your thing, then Prada’s latest spring fragrance is definitely for you. With a light mandarin and rose scent, this splurge-worthy fragrance gets its kick from peppermint base notes. To me, this fragrance screams (or politely nod to) elegant, sophisticated and maybe just a touch feisty.
