You wouldn’t wear sweats to date night or an evening gown to brunch, right? Of course not! You choose your outfit based on the occasion. Well, why not do the same with your fragrance? In this handy guide, we’ll reveal which scents work particularly well for some common spring scenarios. Get ready to hit all the right notes this season.
What you want: Whether you’re heading out for a first date with a new guy—or the hundredth one with your husband—you’ll want a killer dress, a great lipstick, and a scent that’s ultra-feminine and super sexy. For that, look for a mix of captivating floral notes, plus sultry touches of woodsy spice.
Our pick: Avon Femme, opens with sweet florals of jasmine petals and magnolia. Rich amber woods round out the fragrance, turning it into a sexy scent he won’t be able to resist!
Mother’s Day Dinner
What you want: When you’re buying a gift for mom (or just want to wear something perfect for her special day), you’ll want something that radiates love, so start with a bouquet of romantic floral notes. Add a dose of positivity with uplifting citrus, then round it all out with a warm, comforting base.
Our pick: Today Tomorrow Always Absolute, which, at first, blooms with lush orange flower absolute. Next comes crisp bergamot, adding a bright twist, followed by a spicy hit of sandalwood.
Brunch With Friends
What you want: Tread softly when you’re going to be hanging out in a crowd—too-strong fragrances can be polarizing. Instead, go for a light scent with pretty, crowd-pleasing notes of fruits, citrus, and soft woods and florals.
Our pick: Avon Prima, a delicate floral-chypre, makes a statement that’s gorgeous, but never overpowering. It starts with juicy plum and zingy bergamot, reveals a whisper-light heart of rose, then finishes with warms notes of clear wood, patchouli, and oakmoss.
What you want: A fragrance that’s evening-ready, but still fun and playful. For that, look for a mix of florals, deep, woody notes, and juicy fruits.
Our pick: You can’t go wrong with Little Red Dress. Bulgarian rose makes it feminine and pretty, while rich red sandalwood renders it sultry and evening-appropriate. A burst of red raspberry adds a surprising, effervescent twist.
