Spring is often regarded as the season when nature comes back to life. Scent-wise, it is the moment when heavy, oriental fragrances are put aside, in order to make room to lighter and greener scents. Floral perfumes are a good choice for this part of the year, but there are numerous other criteria that one should consider when choosing a spring scent.
As the temperature rises, people start wearing fewer layers of clothes, so strong projection is no longer mandatory. Moreover, as opposed to oriental fragrances, which are rather adequate for autumn and winter, spring scents are generally known not to be “projection monsters”, as perfume reviews usually refer to the heavy ones.
Thunderstorms are not unheard of during spring, so one should make sure that his or her wardrobe includes a fragrance for such weather. If woods, amber and vanilla are the preferred notes during the cold days of autumn and winter, the fragrances for spring might include tea notes or such combinations as leather and aquatic notes. Tea is known to have a calming effect, so focusing on perfumes that include it is a great idea for rainy spring days. However, not all tea fragrances include the same type of tea. Some have a red tea note, while others have in their composition green or white tea notes. Black tea might be more suitable for autumn, as it is darker and bitterer.
In order to assure a wide enough variety of perfumes for rainy spring days, it is better to get perfume decants, rather than full bottles. By doing this, people are able to spend the same amount of money on a greater number of scents than on fewer full bottles that would take years to empty. From this point of view, perfume decants are the perfect symbol of practicality, as they allow people to enjoy variety at a decent cost.
