Despite consulting a ground hog, circling dates on the calendar, even dressing for the season we want, not the one we have – the warm, spring weather has evading our grasp.
While we wait for the weather to turn, and flowers to bloom, we are embracing floral scents and invigorating our endorphins with a bouquet of seasonal fragrances.
Snap up these springtime scents just in time for “National Fragrance Day” (tomorrow!)

For Terry de Gunzburg, life is made of words, Love and Colors. She dedicates her new creation to all the romantic women in the world: passionate, perfumed and colorful letters held in a vibrant limited-edition case: RÊVE OPULENT. The designer daringly unites two carnal expressions of ultimate femininity: a floral eau de parfum, RÊVE OPULENT, and a ROUGE TERRYBLY fuchsia lipstick taken to the very height of sensuality. The fragrance – RÊVE OPULENT – is a fresh blend of mandarin and white peach. At the heart, a gardenia blooms from the explosion of the most beautiful Indian Sambac jasmine flowers swirled into Turkish rose. In the trail, this floral kaleidoscope reveals a musky vanilla harmony.

The fragrance opens with the fizz of champagne citrus and midnight blackberry, then deepens to gilded lotus flower, Rose Petale™ and the lengthening play of evening with sunset oud wood. As a final finish, it plays out with cedarwood heart, Haitian vanilla orchid, Indonesian patchouli and golden amber resin. A gilded, glistening fragrance of pure gold.

A hypnotic blend of precious spices, smoky oud and rich woods, Ralph Lauren presents its most luxurious World of Polo fragrance yet. Designed for the refined gentleman looking for an indelible, signature scent, POLO SUPREME OUD is as discerning and selective as its wearer. As the brand’s first men’s eau de parfum, it uses a higher concentration of refined ingredients to ensure quality, strength and longevity.

Inspired by Ralph Lauren’s infinite taste for exceptional objects, Master Perfumer Carlos Benaim’s vision was to recreate the essence of the burning resin to create a scent that is “memorable, masculine and intoxicating.”
Impeccably tailored, the oriental woody fragrance features a powerful contrast of notable ingredients, including:
