1. Say Goodbye to Winter
When choosing the perfect spring fragrance, of course, we firsthe have to say goodbye to winter—not just in our minds—but also in our existing fragrances!
Since winter is so cold, we tend to choose warmer scents for it. But since sunnier days are what makes up Spring, we would have to do a complete 360-degree shift from our warmer scents to lighter, fresher fragrances. Instead of choosing your go-to spicier and muskier scents, opt for citrusy or floral aromas.
You could try our specially concocted scent from our Coco by Stone collection, "Smells Like Fresh Cut Grass". Aside from smelling like that oddly therapeutic scent of your front yard’s freshly cut lawn, the candle form of this scent is also plant-based and made with purely coconut wax. So eco-friendly!
2. Spring Renewal
Since Spring is characterized by warmer, hotter temperatures, your normal winter scents may seem too heavy and weigh you down. Instead of making you smell fresh and clean, these musky winter scents might just make you feel like the opposite!
That is why your best choice for a spring fragrance are those scents that are generally lighter. Aside from making you feel clean despite the warm rays of the sun, having these fresh aromas enveloping you may make you feel just one with the blooming flowers of Spring!

3. Know Your Notes
“Notes” is a term that you have probably encountered for the nth time already, especially when it comes to the perfume industry. I am sure that some of you, though, still find it hard to understand just what notes are. Do not worry, I will explain it to you in a simple manner.
Simply put, notes are like the layers that makeup the overall scent of your fragrances. There are three types of notes, top notes, heart notes and base notes. Top notes are somewhat like the introductory scents of your fragrances, it is also the first to fade. Heart notes, on the other hand, are the main component of your perfume and it is what majorly composes your scent. Lastly, base notes are the lingering scents of your perfume once the top notes and heart notes have faded.
In choosing the perfect spring fragrance, it is important to choose fragrances that have spring-like notes. You could choose perfumes with a citrusy top note, with a floral heart note, and a sweet but light base note. Try our English Pear and Freesia (inspired by Jo Malone) fragrance to experience a citrusy top note, paired with a floral heart note and a sweet musky base note to know just what I’m talking about!
4. Classic Spring Notes
Spring is all about the natural scents! When choosing your perfect spring fragrance, you must keep in mind one word: Nature. That is why you perfume notes must also be those notes that remind you of the natural and invigorating smells of nature.
In order to really capture spring in your fragrance, we recommend you to get those perfumes with these notes: floral, citrusy, woody, and herby!
