If you want to smell fresh and cheerful—whether it's April or the dead of winter—you can always opt for a spring-inspired fragrance. These scents evoke sunshine, happiness, and nature. I'm talking notes like florals, citrus, and greenery. And they'll probably put a smile on your face.
One brand that totally wins in that fragrance department? Escada. I swear every perfume from the brand is a sweet little burst of springtime. Its perfumes have notes of pear, raspberry, jasmine, rose, blackcurrant, and more (all of the most delicious and pleasant scents).
So if you're looking for a new signature fragrance to spritz on this spring (or any time of year, really), take a look at some Escada scents below.
1. Escada Celebrate N.O.W Eau de Parfum
This fragrance was made to "celebrate the nature of women." It has top notes of ginger essence, victoria pineapple, and magnolia; heart notes of star anise, rose absolute, and tonka-bean absolute; and base notes of cinnamon-bark essence and rice-pudding accord.
2. Escada Flor del Sol Eau de Toilette
Well, isn't this fragrance just plain alluring? It has a tequila-sunrise accord, so you know it's going to be a sultry one. Other notes include dahlia blossom and sandalwood, so it's both warm and sweet.
3. Escada Especially Eau de Parfum Spray
For something bright and crisp, try this fresh floral perfume that's a mix of rose petals and pear.
4. Escada Magnetism Eau de Parfum Spray
This one is both sweet and sophisticated thanks to a top note of blackcurrant, a heart note of rose, and base notes of coconut and caramel.
5. Escada Candy Love Eau de Toilette Spray
It's no surprise that this fragrance is a sweet treat—it's called "Candy Love," after all. It contains scents of candy-apple accord, rose, and vanilla whipped cream.
6. Escada Cherry in Japan Eau de Toilette
Visiting Japan during cherry-blossom season is a bucket-list trip for sure, but if you can't get there any time soon, this fragrance might just transport you. It has notes of sparkling-cherry accord, natural jasmine petals, and sensual tonka.
7. Escada Celebrate Life Eau de Parfum Spray
Reviewers say this perfume has a wonderful and lovely sweet scent. It features top notes of lychee, bitter orange, and pear; middle notes of amber, orange blossom, and rose; and base notes of vanilla, musk, and ambroxan.
More Spring-Inspired Fragrances
A perfume that's inspired by "the memory of walking through a park in spring"? That's enough to convince us that this might be the ultimate springtime fragrance. It has notes of pear accord, lily-of-the-valley accord, and musk.
A new iteration of Chanel's popular Chance perfume, this one adds some zesty freshness thanks to citron. It's balanced with jasmine and teak wood.
You've got a whole garden in a bottle here. Gucci's Bloom perfume features a top note of Rangoon creeper (a plant that changes color when it blooms), a middle note of tuberose, and a base note of jasmine bud.
Of course, the cult-favorite Flowerbomb fragrance deserves a spot on this list. It's the perfect floral perfume that feels so luxe and expensive with scents of cattleya orchid, freesia, centifolia rose, sambac jasmine, osmanthus, patchouli, and vanilla.
Fresh floral scents of orange blossom and honeysuckle are grounded with amber and cedarwood here.
Sure, Byredo's Flowerhead has the usual floral suspects like jasmine and rose, but it also features intriguing scents like Sicilian lemon, lingonberry, amber, and suede.
This perfume is described as a mix of "the feminine spirit of the Belle Époque and dancers in the candlelit Moulin Rouge." And if that doesn't give you romantic wanderlust, I don't know what will. It features notes of gardenia, jasmine, sandalwood, and amber.
If you like both floral and fruity fragrances, add this one to the list. The fresh perfume has key notes of grapefruit, mimosa flower, and tuberose.
Frédéric Malle's Carnal Flower is the best of all worlds—it's spicy, fresh, and sweet thanks to notes of tuberose, musk, camphora, melon, and coconut.
If you're looking for a sunny and cheerful fragrance, check this one out. A brighter iteration of Marc Jacobs's classic Daisy perfume, this one features top notes of raspberry, grapefruit, and pear; middle notes of violet, wild rose, and apple blossom; and base notes of musk, cedarwood, and plum.
For a woody and fresh scent, try Iris 39 from Le Labo. It contains notes of lime, iris, rose, ginger, patchouli, civet, and musk.
A newer Tom Ford fragrance, Rose de Chine isn't your average rose perfume. It has sweetness and a little bit of smokiness. Along with rose neoabsolute, the perfume contains a note of Yunnan yellow peony.
