A new season means it’s time for a new scent and spring calls for something clean, bright and lively to match the optimism of this time of year. Accordingly, the first few months of the year are a traditional time for perfume houses to release their most sparkling new scents and 2022 is no different. Whether your style is more zingy citrus top notes or salty, savoury undertones, pack away the musks and woody colognes of winter and discover your next signature scent with our pick of the best new spring fragrances for women.

Bulgari Le Gemme Orom

Inspired by the traditions of haute joaillerie, Bulgari’s Le Gemme collection evokes a voyage along the mythical Gems Road, an exciting path from East to West that is home to precious stones and some of the world’s most sought-after ingredients. For its latest olfactive outing, Le Gemme Orom, notes of fine bourbon vanilla, rich natural oud, blond suede accord and upcycled cedarwood essence are blended into an intense, multifaceted aroma with a woody, leathery signature. Captivating and luxurious, the scent brings together an olfactive pyramid of sensual and luminous top notes, leathery amber heart notes and a base of woody richness to create a nuanced fragrance that Master Perfumer Sophie Labbé has dubbed a ‘vanilla caviar’. Delicious.

Gabar No.III Swim

Born from the rich history of Myanmar, Gabar aims to nurture the next global vanguard of creatives with a world of fragrances tailored to the internal pursuit, encouraging the use of scent and ritual as meditation. Inspired by the jungles of Hpa-An, No. III Swim is a fresh, dynamic perfume combining lush blackcurrant bud and wild fig with green tea, jasmine and a deep, mossy base of amber and cedarwood. This clean, uplifting scent encourages quiet moments of reflection to find calm, grounding and flow - and with 10 per cent of profits donated to help rebuild Myanmar following the military coup of February 2021, you can be sure that you’re doing good, as well as smelling great.

Malin + Goetz Strawberry

Challenge your perception of the humble garden strawberry with this clean yet complex scent from Malin + Goetz. A playful blend of bergamot and pink pepper top notes offset the sweetness of mara strawberry, while jasmine and woodland greens delicately deconstruct the fruit’s aroma, mixing with heady cedarwood, oakmoss and orris root to deliver an unexpected olfactive experience that will stay with you long after spring has sprung.

Opening with notes of North African orange blossom and Moroccan and Turkish rose, Egyptian jasmine sambac and tuberose swiftly follow, uplifting the fragrance with a gentle freshness that perfectly suits the transition between seasons.

Narcisco Rodriguez Musc Noir Rose

 

Plotting an elegantly balanced trans-seasonal course, the latest fragrance in the Narcisco Rodriguez women’s line takes the dark sensuality of leather and wood, and finds balance with creamy vanilla and floral tuberose. Delicately balancing the signature heart of musk with the fruitiness of plum and the herbal touch of Italian bergamot and pink peppercorn, this is a bold and complex fragrance that can be applied day or night.

Tom Ford Private Blend Tubéreuse Nue

Also known as the ‘Mistress of the Night’, tuberose has long been a favourite for scents intended to be worn after dark thanks to the flower’s natural tendency to release its fragrance at night. This is exactly what Tom Ford hopes to evoke with the latest addition to its premium Private Blend range, blending floral tuberose with the warmth and spice of akigalawood and timut pepper in a fragrance ideal for capturing the excitement of long warm evenings.

Parfums de Marley Delina La Rosée

It will come as no surprise that this super feminine fragrance from French house Parfums de Marly centres itself around the heady scent of fresh roses. Founder Julien Sprecher was inspired by an 18th-century tradition, in which young women would soak handkerchiefs in morning dew to moisturise their faces, resulting in an olfactory expression that draws on earth, sea and sky. A heart of Turkish rose is highlighted by shades of pear, lychee, bergamot, white musk and vetiver.

Clean and crisp, bright citrus notes of grapefruit blend with patchouli, vetiver, cedarwood and geranium to put a modern twist on these classic ingredients, creating a truly celebratory perfume that feels just right for a season of blue skies and warm breezes.
