Spring Fragrances for a Fresh Signature Scent

In full bloom.

Despite some bouts of rainy weather, magnolias and pink cherry blossoms line Vancouver streets and parks. Nature’s ushering in of spring is an invitation to discover a fragrance that has a scent as lovely as the new season’s flora. These newly released or classic fragrances mirror the blissful scents of spring—light, fresh, citrusy, and floral—to mist as a signature scent for months on end.



Chanel Comète

“Fragrance is a language. It can at times, more so than words, reveal a facet of the person who wears it, uncovering a part of their story,” the French fashion house states regarding its coveted Les Exclusifs de Chanel eaux de parfum collection. A celestial symbol, the comet, like the star, has been incorporated into Chanel’s fine creations and jewellery. An accord of cherry blossom blended with musk and iris extract, Chanel Comète is a new scent of sophistication. The new scent will be available on May 1, 2024.





Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Florabloom

A bouquet of flowery scents, Guerlain’s Florabloom is a vibrant combination of tuberose, Centifolia rose, violet, and iris with undertones of sandalwood and moss. A remarkable natural occurrence of desert flowers blooming after a rainfall called a superbloom was the guiding light for this blend in the Aqua Allegoria collection. To reuse the bottle, the spray unscrews, and a 200-millilitre perfume refill is available.





Miss Dior Parfum

Famed perfumer and Dior Perfume creative director Francis Kurkdjian reimagines the classic Miss Dior aroma—synonymous with femininity and a fresh, floral scent—as Miss Dior Parfum, which Dior calls “the breath of femininity and youth.”

Inspired by the original Miss Dior fragrance introduced in 1947, Kurkdjian’s interpretation includes prominent amber wood tones of patchouli and Alaskan cedar, alongside mandarin and a jasmine extract, accompanied by notes of strawberries, peaches, and apricots.





Burberry Goddess Eau de Parfum

Richer than a single-note vanilla fragrance, this vegan blend combines three variations: a woody vanilla infusion, a sweet vanilla caviar, and a vanilla absolute blended with lavender. The minimalist gold and light pink bottle can be refilled with the same blend, available separately.





Penhaligon’s Alula

A spicier fragrance for spring, the new Penhaligon’s Alula fragrance explores exotic scents found in spice markets and date palms of desert lands. This rich, alluring blend encapsulates citrus, fig, vanilla, plum, saffron, and spices such as patchouli, turmeric, and cardamom.

Penhaligon’s offers personalization through name engravings, leather sleeves, monograms, and charms, and a service to refill empty perfume bottles at select retailers.





Oribe Valley of Flowers Eau de Parfum

Oribe (pronounced “or-bay”), known for its refined hair-care lines that carry a signature scent, offers an enchanting fragrance as a perfume. Carrying floral notes like that of a vast meadow and earthy aromas, the Valley of the Flowers eau de parfum features Bulgarian rose, jasmine, peony, warm amber, wood, and musk.





Lancôme Figues & Agrumes Eau de Parfum

For those who dream of the Mediterranean, this blend of figs, citrus, and jasmine is a light, airy scent sure to remind of sunny weather in one of the most beautiful corners of the world. The glass bottle features a golden-plated front and a sage-green fig-and-foliage design on the back.





Nest New York Lychee Rose Eau de Parfum

A cruelty-free and vegan product, this mix of rose, fresh lychee, pink champagne, and (a touch of) raspberry was inspired by a wedding Nest founder Laura Slatkin attended near Tuscany, where she sipped a pink champagne and lychee liqueur cocktail and nibbled rose, lychee, and raspberry macarons while surrounded by an abundance of roses. A joyful olfactory experience at the wedding, this eau de parfum was modelled after the scents that remind her of the occasion.
