This season, fragrance has followed fashion down an ornate path—right into a floral frenzy. We’ve seen flowers splashed across dresses, crafted in jewelry and fastened to shoes. Now it’s time to wake up and smell those roses in the sweetest new scents of the season.
Rose, the classic aroma that has adorned necks of women for generations, has taken on a slightly less potent position for spring—readying this often-heavy note for lighter warm-weather use. Toned down with a mild mix of fruit and herb, rose emits a youthful and whimsical aroma. The "new rose" still makes a statement, but is light enough to wear all day long. And instead of standing on its own, in the newest fragrances orange blossom, peony and daisy are a few of the delicate scents that compliment the power flower.
It comes as no surprise that the enduring bloom has caught the attention of top designers such as Givenchy, Kenzo, Dior and Valentino—who all include bouquet medleys in their spring collections. Valentino created Rock N Rose, a floral blend consisting of heliotrope, orange blossom and rose; Kenzo introduced Amour Indian Holi, a fruitier concoction of rose, cherry blossom, and red berry—both equally rich in rose and sweet in scent.
Not only is this bouquet bloom desirable, it is also attainable. The Body Shop, for example, carries Cassis Rose, a delightful rose and berry burst for only $15. Or spend a little more on Dior’s limited edition Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Printemps for $53. Whichever of these flirty scents catches your fancy, a hint of rose is a sure way to deliver a spritz of style to your skin this spring.
