You've been wearing your complex winter scents; and they're great. Their warm dusky notes are perfect for cozy times before the fire. But now that we're all a little tired of winter, one way to speed up the waiting room time, is with a new soft spring perfume.
There are many to choose from and perfume houses are releasing them by the dozens right now. Look for something light that permeates. In other words, make sure it lasts and you can still smell it on your clothes hours later. Instead of a single note, such as lily or rose, choose something that's in accord with a single flower but captures other notes such as a touch of vanilla or chypre. This imparts the lightness you crave with just a bit of warmth to carry you through to spring. These fragrances are often called the silk slip scents because they go on smooth and soft.
Don't be afraid to leave your comfort zone either. If you love the musks, try a watery floral instead. If you've been wearing a potent winter fragrance, balance it now with a light oriental. It will be like a breath of fresh air.
And wear your new scent everywhere including the office. There's no reason to wait for a dinner date to test run your new perfume. It may be way too soon for t-shirts and sandals, but you can get a head start on warm weather by infusing some light and energy into your personal style with one of the new uncomplicated and happy fragrances that are out right this minute!
