Everyone’s got a can’t-walk-out-the-door-without thing in their house. For product junkies like myself, it’s usually a lipstick or sunglasses. Everyone’s answer to this should be sunscreen, but that’s beside the point I’m trying to make. Because when the sun starts to stay out longer, thus making life inexplicably better, I’m only concerned about one thing: securing new spring fragrances I can rotate and become obsessed with wearing.
The power of scent isn’t just a marketing gimmick. Studies have shown that certain ones can actually ignite reactions (both happy and sad) since the brain’s emotional receptors and our olfactory system are directly connected. So when you do find something that moves you, especially in the midst of seasonal depression, you should definitely keep using it. With that being said, there is no shortage of newness to get your hands on. Ahead, 20 new fragrances that smell and feel like the onset of a truly glorious spring.
Amo Ferragamo Flowerful
This pretty prismatic bottle houses the perfume equivalent of a flower bouquet, thanks to elegant floral notes.
$85 at Bloomingdale’s
Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Peony
Floral overload is the best way to describe this spring-fresh scent, jam-packed with notes including cyclamen, freesia, Bulgarian rose and of course, pink peony.
$120 at Macy’s
ALLSAINTS Incense City
Don’t be fooled by the name of this unisex fragrance. Though incense is the base note, you’ll also get layers of cypress and cedarwood for a scent that woodsy without being too heavy.
$79 at ALLSAINTS
Carolina Herrera GOOD GIRL Légère Eau de Parfum
The latest addition to the GOOD GIRL family is this twist on the original. In addition to the collection’s staple tonka and jasmine notes is sandalwood and ylang-ylang for a hint of sweetness.

Malin & Goetz Stem
We love that this garden-inspired scent highlights the crisp, fresh scent of cut stems instead of the flower petals. Think of that subtle, refreshing smell that lingers on your hands after you’ve picked fresh flowers.
$95 at Malin & Goetz
Philosophy Amazing Grace Magnolia
This twist on the iconic Amazing Grace fragrance goes all in with a woodland scent made possible by the addition of magnolia petals.

Jo Malone London Lupin & Patchouli
Our favorite smell-good from the brand’s new Wild Flowers & Weeds collection is a nature-inspired blend of light lupin and rose with the deeper, woody patchouli.
$72 at Jo Malone London
The clothing store just launched its first-ever line of fragrances and this one, made with natural essences and oils, is described as a lazy afternoon in the sun.
$65 at Madewell
Diptyque Eau Rose
If you like the candles, you’ll love the scents; especially this one, an homage to the pink rose.

Aerin Aegea Blossom
The Greek islands served as inspo for this new scent, a floral mix of neroli petals and orange flowers in addition to bergamot, verbana, and jasmine.

Those looking for something on the warmer side will love this gourmand masterpiece, which plays on opposites with a unique layering of violet, coffee, and vanilla.
