"Spring fragrances have a 'freshness' and uplifting quality," Sue Philips, a scentologist, told us. Fresh light florals, such as Italian Iris in Very Sexy Touch by Victoria's Secret ($42-60, victoriassecret.com), are soft romantic notes that are perfect for spring weather and the carefree romantic vibe it radiates.
We love Oscar de la Renta's live in love ($58, ulta.com), not only because of its sparkling ginger orchid and bargamot, but also because of Oscar's inspiration. The fragrance is an expression of his desire to make every woman feel like she is the most beautiful in the world. Confidence is so sexy.
Halle Berry's second fragrance Reveal the Passion ($28, kohls.com) is a perfect combination of elegance and sexiness with a wood and fruity scent. It's the perfect transition fragrance from winter to spring because deeper wood notes that are warm and sensual are best used in winter.
When I hear Hello Kitty, I think of my four-year-old niece but the brand, that teams with Sephora, has a new fragrance called Hello Kitty Big Pink Bow ($58, sephora.com) with notes of pineapple, honeysuckle, gardenia and vanilla that exudes a surprisingly sophisticated and sexy feel.
Eva Longoria experimented more with her second fragrance, EVAmour ($35-58, hsn.com). With notes of pink lady apple and red currant, it brings out your sultry side. "If you are feeling seductive and sophisticated, wanting to go out and make a bolder statement, you wear the second one."
Philips recommends Ralph Lauren's set of four Big Pony fragrances ($70, nordstrom.com) because they "reflect a new season - they are colorful, bold and each fragrance is distinctive, young and appeals to women who 'want it all.'" We love Pink #2 best because it blends cranberry and tonka mousse for a sensual, fruity scent that'll bring out your flirty side.
We love The Body Shop's Dreams Unlimited Sun Fresh ($25, thebodyshop-usa.com) because it will serve as the perfect transition from spring to summer with its hint of watermelon. It also projects positive energy with its notes of mandarin, salty aquatic notes and florals - perfect for a sexy weekend getaway.
Narciso Rodriguez's newest limited edition fragrance For Her ($102, saksfifthavenue.com) is a light blend of wood and fruity notes. The scent was inspired by feminine grace but we'd like to add that it has that exotic sex appeal going on too.
"Citrus notes gives Spring a feeling of lightness and youth," says Philips. Kate Walsh's new fragrance Billionaire Boyfriend ($80, bonanza.com) has a note of tangerine as well as a mix of feminine and masculine notes of black jasmine amber, bergamot, orchid and sandalwood.
Swarovski just came out with their first fragrance, Aura ($67, amazon.com). With notes of rose, tuberose, amber and white musk, it's a light fragrance for everyday wear. We love that Nadja Swarovski found her inspiration for the scent from wanting to capture the essence of a crystal. Well done.
