Spring is well upon us, its gentle presence marked by wisps of green and colorful blooms scalloping driveways, malls, homes and office buildings, and the fragrant notes of summer are not far behind it.
Fragrances help to define each of Mother Nature’s passing seasons, and they leave their mark on human spirit and energy as well.
Spring’s symbol of rebirth and renewal alleviates depressive and somber thoughts that often accompany the colder months of the year.
The time has come to shed those coats, mufflers, hats, gloves and blues and emerge from the winter darkness with freshness, hope and a new attitude.
Most of our lives are spent divided between home, hearth and work.
Apart from the loving warmth of family and friends, a home is many things to many people, and yet simultaneously, reflects the universal needs of everyone everywhere in some degree or another.
Whether tidy or always in search of lost or misplaced papers and other bits of every day life, home and office spaces (and work spaces within the home) share some unique qualities in the sense that they all must reflect an atmosphere that mirrors how our minds function within a particular setting.
Seasonal scents have a power all their own. The spring season not only lifts us out of our winter blues, it also open our minds and encourages us to spend more time outside.
Spring blossoms and blooms are refreshing, mellow and inviting, and are naturally available by merely opening those windows once sealed from winter cold.
They allow ingress to warm breezes wafting from leafy green hyacinth, soft, bittersweet crocus and other garden florals.
Spring’s fragrances can whisper softly or burst with the brightness of citrus, fruit aquatic and sweet-smelling floral aspects. They all evoke the feeling of the sun at our backs, azure skies above and long, lingering days.
According to Adam Eastwood, co-founder of a website that sells hard-to-find fragrances from all over the world: “Springtime means a change of pace from the colder months, where people tend to prefer warmth, woods, spice and all things comforting. Every spring, without fail, people come looking for something fresh or floral or both. Here in Los Angeles, the pink jasmine that blooms in February and March seems to intoxicate us.”
Ron Robinson, creator of the Apothia line of perfumes and candles states: “Women seek out bright citrus notes with leafy green accents as well as lighter floral notes, such as peony, and softer blossoms, such as orange and plum. There is a very different feeling that occurs as the sun shines and warms our bodies. It’s best to lighten and freshen the scents we wear.”

Think about the following suggestions before making a final selection about spring fragrances for home or office.
Show Winter The Door
While winter is the perfect time to wear heavier scents, they must fall by the wayside when warmer weather approaches.
Spring calls for lighter fragrances along with lighter clothing and attitudes as well.
Inhaling the splendor of Mother Nature’s blooms reminds us of the joys of being alive and replaces warm and woody perfume elements that are more suitable to colder weather.
Appreciate Spring Renewal
The rejuvenation of nature is eternal. Spring brings sun, warmth, an increase in body temperatures and many improvements in skin moisture.
Lighter scents are fresh airy and linger longer in the air.
Spring fragrances are green and associated with freshness, happiness and colorful flowers.
Some classic notes include: spicy, floral bergamot, sharp, clean lemon, succulent honey-like mandarin and romantic floral aspects such as: fruity iris, intoxicating jasmine and romantic, musky rose.
Understand Perfume Notes
The fact that every perfume formulation consists of three classes of notes is important when selecting the right fragrance.
The scent that is first discerned comes from the top notes; the heart notes soon follow and fuse with the lingering, final base notes.
Appreciate Renewed Energy and Mood Alterations
Olfactory impulses explode when warmer weather bursts across the landscape.
April, May and June are the perfect time to indulge in scents that are uplifting and mirror the green, floral and fruity aspects of spring as well as new energy levels and elevating states of mind.
Feminine scents are soft and floral, while masculine fragrances are citrusy and fresh.
Take The Environment Into Consideration
When selecting a spring or summer fragrance, consider whether it is better suited for a night out, in at home or at the office.
Despite the lightness of these seasonal scents, surroundings, diet and the weather can affect a perfume’s strength and durability.
