I'm so stoked to have contributed a list of my favorite Springtime perfumes to the best blog ever- Hawaiian Coconut! I've had the nose of a hound dog my entire life, sometimes being a good thing, sometimes being a horrible thing. It has given me a love for all things that smell wonderful in the world.... including a passion for perfume. I'm lucky because so many people in my life have supported my nose, the number one person being my aunt who sends me my scent-of-the-moment every year for my Birthday and Christmas. I'm pretty sure (but not positive) it's one of the things my boyfriend loves about me. Hah! We all carry our own olfactory perception, that can be very dear to us... these are just a few that bring me different memories, new and old. Enjoy! 

Gypsy Water by Byredo:  This is a subtle scent, but my most favorite to date. It's perfect for Spring and Summer because it mixes so beautifully with wet skin from swimming in the ocean, or even sweat from hiking. It's definitely meant to be worn in nature.

Cafe Rose by Tom Ford:  I love this one for hot summer nights. It's warm with a beautiful blend of coffee, and rose (may rose and bulgarian rose). It will add some spice to your night.

White Jasmine and Mint by Jo Malone:  This scent and the next scent kind of go together for me. Driving through Los Angeles in the Springtime with the windows down is unbelievable because you're overwhelmed by the orange blossom trees and jasmine blooming. They mix quite perfectly but are also amazing standing alone. I usually wear some jasmine or orange blossoms in my hair, but will mix in one of these perfumes to accentuate the experience.

Fleur D'Oranger 27 by La Labo:  Again, orange blossoms... they are amazing. This scent perfectly captures that time in Los Angeles when the smell of orange blossoms are filling the air.

L'eau du Trente-Quatre by Diptique:  This was created to capture the time when the weather changes from Winter to Spring and everything around you is beginning to turn green. Perfect as an introduction to the season.

Iris Nobile Sublime by Acqua di Parma:  Iris is such a wonderful Springtime flower that blooms well into the Summer in some climates. I like it as a change from the normal rose, jasmine, and orange blossom as a new floral scent.

Lavandula by Penhaligon's:  I originally chose this one to try because I was looking for a good lavender scent and was surprised because instead of smelling like a bushel of freshly cut lavender, it reminded me of the lavender candy mints my mom used to put in my stocking for Christmas growing up. Love it for spring.
