Fragrance is so personal, subjective and closely intertwined with one’s personality; it’s like the old saying goes, “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” While one might love a light, fresh and crisp scent, someone else may prefer a deep, sweet, rich fragrance. Whatever your preference, fragrance is sure to play a special part in your daily routine. It can remind you of special times, lift your mood or put you into a certain state of mind.
I encourage you to be a cologne chameleon; don’t just stick to one scent. Sure, you may hold dearly onto that one fragrance you simply can’t live without, but try switching it up now and then (adding some variety is always fun, interesting and exciting). Whether you wear this new scent solely on date night or only on weekends, creating a specific moment for your scents will build that olfactory memory and bring you back to great times or memories of loved ones- and that’s special.
Spring is a great time to try out a new scent; there are so many coming out onto the market (Spring is the time for new beginnings, right?) and it can be a little intimidating.

We’ve rounded up 24 of the best new scents on the market this season, so you’re sure to find a new one to try out.
And who knows… maybe it will become “the one”.

Just in time for warmer weather, the blend of cool citrus scents infused with hints of sweet berries offers a refreshing change from those warm, musky winter fragrances.
