With Fashion Week coming to an end, there’s no better time to stop and smell the roses… white lilies, green apples and patchoulis. Here are 10 of the freshest fragrances to launch this month. They smell of dewy grass and newly blossomed flowers. We can’t help but dream: is it spring yet?

Oscar Flor

This soft scent was inspired by the late Oscar de la Renta’s Dominican Republic home. As the name reflects there are floral notes of jasmine and peony. But it’s the top notes of lychee and crisp ivy that give the perfume a pure characteristic

Original by Anja Rubik

A fresh fragrance by supermodel Anja Rubik, Original, smells of white lilies with notes of green tea and pink peppercorn.

Bond No. 9 Park Avenue South

The New York Centric perfumery introduces Park Avenue South for Spring ’15. The fragrance is fruity and floral. The most recognizable scent is the top note of green apple followed with peach and jasmine. Available March 21, 2015.

Michael Kors White

Launched just last month, this spring scent is as clean and crisp as its packaging. The fragrance has notes of dewy green, violet leaves and cedar wood among floral notes including white peony and jasmine. But, it’s perhaps the smell of gardenia that is the strongest.

Gucci Guilty Diamond Pour Femme

This limited edition fragrance has a distinct sensual quality. The notes include lilac, cardamom and patchouli. It’s perfect for a spring evening.

Hugo Boss Woman

At first smell, the scent is fruity with boysenberry and mandarin as its top notes, and black plum as a middle note. At its base the fragrance is woodsy adding a dab of masculinity to the otherwise feminine blend.

La Prairie Midnight Rain

Though classified as a floral oriental scent Midnight Rain is delicate (unlike most in its category). The fragrance is rich in woodsy, watery and floral notes. The perfume gets its oriental characteristic from middle notes of Amber and a hint of vanilla.

Eau Plurielle Diptyque

Eau Plurielle is one of three new fragrances to join Diptyque’s permanent collection. The perfume, which smells richly of Turkish roses, can be used on fabrics and skin.

Tom Ford Grey Vetiver

The designer reinvents his classic men’s scent Vetiver. Grey Vetiver is woodsy and clean with notes of citrus fruits combined with basil and sage.

Eau de Lacoste L.12.12

This aromatic men’s fragrance is a crisp concoction of grapefruit and balmy cypress. It’s yellow polo packaging is a great indication of the cheery scent enclosed.
