Spring scents that are guaranteed to make a statement

Like so many of you I have not been able to return to work due to the pandemic. How I miss seeing you and helping you choose your fragrance for the Spring season. Even though I am at home, I start my day with a spritz of my favourite fragrance! Spring is here and I can’t wait for you to discover and try new scents that are guaranteed to make a statement!

Spring 2021 fragrance trends

Hair mists and gels are everywhere this season! The new body gels are much lighter than the lotions. They are fabulous as they tend to be much lighter on the skin particularly during warmer weather. The hair mists are lighter as well and they don’t weigh down hair at all.

During this pandemic nothing made me feel better than a nice cup of tea to relax me! Perfume companies realized and understood this and introduced the calming notes of black and white tea.

I absolutely love the miniature fragrance sets which were introduced for the various holidays. Being able to try different fragrances from a specific line allowed me to try different scents before I purchased the bottle. Practically every fragrance house has created these miniature/discovery kits for the Spring 2021.

Most fragrance brands this Spring season have developed new fresh and floral scents that allow us to imaginary escape to beautiful beaches, magical gardens, and idyllic cafés by the water! Notes of gardenia, jasmine, and Italian citrus are found in so many of the 2021 Spring Fragrances. I personally love the floral notes and I am glad to see that they are being introduced to many men’s fragrances.

Here are some of my Spring pics!

Sid’s fragrance tips

1. Don’t wear a sensuous fragrance on your wedding day. You do not want an overly sexy scent but try and choose a romantic jasmine or floral scent.

2. Don’t wear an overpowering fragrance for your job interview but try to choose a fresh light scent.

3. If you are wearing light fragrances that don’t last long use the body cream or shower gel that goes with it, so the fragrance last longer.

4. Line your drawers with tissue paper that has been spritzed a few times to subtly scent clothing.

5. Pour the last of used perfume into an unscented lotion bottle to create a lotion that smells like your favourite fragrance.
