I had the best intentions about doing something a lot more inspired as my spring perfume post. But I guess I'm not really feeling it and if I waited any longer it'll be August and we'll all be ready for fall. You can always dig in my past spring posts for more perfumes, like this one from 2010, Scents That Sing Of Spring. This is just a quick(ish. The bonus round is pretty massive) roundup of perfumes I've been wearing, craving, and thinking about in the last couple of weeks. It's subject to change and to mood; for all we know next spring I might be wearing Angel.
Caron- Nocturne. Deserve much more love than it gets.
Tauer Perfumes- Noontide Petals.
Givenchy- Amarige Mimosa Harvest. It's yellow.
Something Masculine (ok, totally gender-free, but that's the husband's choice)
Olfactive Studio- Flash Back (review coming this week). Crisp and lighthearted.
April Aromatics- Liquid Dreams. A gorgeous narcissus.
Something For Beginners
L'Artisan Parfumeur- La Chasse Aux Papillons. $100 at Sephora online, and better than most of the stuff they sell.
Guerlain- Chamade, Taure- Carillon Pour Un Ange, Ramon Monegal- Pure Mariposa, Annick Goutal- Grand Amour, Vintage Lauren, Tommi Sooni Jinx and Passerelle, Vintage Diorissimo, DSH Muguet, Laura Ashley- Emma, CB I Hate Perfumes Wild Pansy, A Room With A View, To See A Flower and I Am A Dandelion.
