Miranda Priestly may not be a fan of florals for spring, but if you ask us, there’s a reason this classic pairing remains consistently popular. Lighter than the woods and orientals traditionally associated with winter, floral fragrances tend to evoke longer, warmer days by recalling springtime’s sweetly-scented outdoor air. That said, floral perfumes are anything but homogenous. From pure and wholesome to dark and complex, this fragrance family has it all.
Below, we’ve called out three of our all-time favourite Glasshouse Fragrances florals for you to get acquainted with. Soft and romantic, sultry and seductive or bright and perfectly balanced, there’s something for everyone. Whichever you choose, one thing’s for sure - each one is better than a bouquet of the real thing.
