- Florals – this is of course the most obvious and completely quintessential Spring fragrance category, and
- Citrus – the fresh crisp citrus scents come into their own in the warmer months, especially Summer!
As inspiration I have listed below a selection of my favourite floral and citrus fragrances. In the comments below I’d be interested to hear which additional floral and citrus fragrances are your favourites.
Daisy By Marc Jacobs
All the Daisy fragrances are perfect floral scents for Spring and Summer. I mean just look at the bottle lids of these fragrances! You can’t get a more Spring themed fragrance bottle than these!
My favourite fragrance from the Daisy range is still the original Daisy. In addition to being a floral, it is also a crisp, citrus fruity fragrance, perfect for summer too.
The top notes of strawberry, violet and ruby red grapefruit make a wonderful fresh impact. This is followed up with base notes of musk, vanilla and white woods, balancing out tones of gardenia and jasmine.

Alternatively if you want to try more than one variety of Daisy, you can purchase the 4 set of Daisy Minatures including Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh, Daisy Delight & Daisy Eau So Fresh Delight. These mini bottles are just the cutest ever!
These mini bottles make an affordable yet totally luxurious gift that is always happily received! I buy these mini sets of four and then give individual mini bottles as Christmas gifts to teachers and work colleagues.
Another beautiful and feminine floral fragrance perfect for the warmer seasons is Roses de Chloe.
The rose notes of this fragrance are incredibly fresh and not at all heavy like some rose fragrances can be. The top note is a gorgeous rose scent with the added freshness of bergamot, which is gradually joined by a heart of damascena rose essence, modernized with a magnolia accord. On the skin this fragrance leaves a lovely trail of white musk and amber, a signature of the Chloe house.
I’m totally in love with this fragrance!
Amazing Grace 20th Anniversary EDT by philosophy
Versace Eros Pour Femme
Versace Eros Pour Femme is a bright and sexy feminine fragrance without being overpowering. It’s one of my all time favourite Summer evening fragrances. It has citrus top notes of Sicilian lemon, bergamot and pomegranate, middle notes of lemon flower, jasmine absolute, jasmine infusion and peony, and base notes of sandalwood, ambrox, musk and sensual woods.
I have blogged about my love for this fragrance previously and this is my third bottle of Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey! This is one of the fragrances that I would consider to be my signature scent. It has given me confidence on many an important occasion!
I’m also loving it’s stunning diamond shaped bottle. It reminds me of the blue ocean with the sun sparkling on it thanks to it’s beautiful vibrant blue colour topped with the multi faceted gem of a lid! Isn’t it beautiful!
