Welcome to our journal on the joys of spring fragrance! As the daylight hours lengthen and we wave goodbye to the chilly winter months, now is an ideal time to embrace the promise of warmer weather and switch up your perfume game accordingly. In this journal, we’ll explore why changing your perfume with the seasons is important, discuss how to choose your perfect fragrance for spring, and explore our top five Bath House fragrances for the season.
So why change our perfume to match a season?
The change in temperature can affect how a fragrance smells on your skin, so it can be important to choose a scent that’s appropriate for the season. For colder months, you might want a warm, cosy scent to provide that comforting feeling, whereas, in the spring, something lighter, fresher and more playful is needed.
Fragrances are very personal and like an extension of ourselves – they evoke certain moods and emotions, and can even transport us back to different places we’ve been and rediscover memories we might hold locked away in our subconscious. Walking through the woodland at this time of year, filled with daffodils releasing their floral spring scent or hyacinth flowers in full bloom on a windowsill comes to mind. Changing your perfume with the seasons is always a fun way to reflect your mood and personality and while it is perhaps a small personal pleasure or an indulgence, the choice of something new helps to keep life interesting.
How to choose a spring fragrance…
Choosing a spring fragrance from all those hundreds of tempting bottles can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. When selecting a perfume for springtime, consider the notes that you prefer. If you like fresh, light scents, opt for citrus notes like bergamot or mandarin. If you prefer something floral, look for notes of peony, rose, gardenia or orange blossom. Additionally, think about the occasion for which you will be wearing the fragrance. For daytime wear, you might want a scent that’s fresh and playful, while for night time, something more elegant and sophisticated has appeal. The most important thing is to maintain an open mind, try something new, and have fun discovering fragrances. After all, the love of a scent is deeply personal and so your choice is always the right choice.
