5 Floral Fragrances to Spring Your Senses Forward

These fresh, garden-inspired scents are perfect for spring.

The rest of the country is springing forward right now and, while our clocks are always right on time all year round, we hate to miss out on the festivities. So we’re celebrating the season in a slightly more scent-sational way—by switching up our toasty, comfy winter fragrances for some fresh floral spritzes.


Reach for these perfectly garden-inspired perfumes this spring to complement your warm(er) weather sundresses, crop tops and romper ensembles. It’s a totally swell-smelling way to accessorize, and the perfect way to push petals in your everyday life.


Trust us: We nose best.

The new, sensuous Black Tulip from NEST comes in a high-drama bottle that sports the brand’s signature, gorgeous botanical illustrations. Just as high-drama is its syrupy sweet smell, an intoxicatingly saccharine scent that’s sure to turn some heads.

$72, Sephora, Ala Moana Center.


2. Pīkake Eau de Parfum
