As the winter months fade out, we start to look forward to the warmer weather and Spring fragrances. Are you a seasonal wearer when it comes to perfume?
As we know, perfume is made up of lots of different fragrance notes and some are more suitable than others when it comes to the seasons.
We have covered winter perfumes here so what about scents for the Spring? Fragrances are made up of different strengths as well as different fragrance notes.
During the daytime when you’re meeting someone for lunch or it’s a working day in the office, these are the times when a perfume or an eau de toilette is more suitable. They’re not too heavy or overpowering for those around you.
We’ve all experienced the strong whiff of a fragrance as someone has walked past and left a lingering scent that stays long after that person has left the room.
For an evening out, such as a date night, gives us the perfect excuse to wear a parfum, which has the highest concentration of oil. Therefore it will last longer and be a stronger scent as it contains more perfume oil. What better way to make a great impression?
When the seasons transition from the cooler months through winter to the summer months, it’s a good idea to change your perfume scents to match accordingly.
Wintertime sees perfumes with heavier notes such as wood, ambergris and spices for sale in the shops and online. Whereas during the warmer months, we see perfumes that have lighter, floral notes such as Lemon, Citrus and Lavender.
As previously discussed, it works the same with the clothes that we wear for the different seasons. When we think of lighter clothes for the summer and thicker, warmer clothes for the winter, it’s the same principle when it comes to your fragrances.
As we see a shift through to Spring weather, it’s a good idea to start wearing a lighter scent.
We should never shy away from wearing a fragrance if that’s what we choose. After all, perfume is an extension of our personality.
Just bear in mind that lighter and more delicate notes will be more suitable as the weather starts to warm up.
Heat will intensify a fragrance so it is best to wear a lighter one so that it doesn’t become overpowering but stays fresh and subtle throughout the day.
As we have already discussed here on signature fragrances, if you prefer to stick to one perfume throughout the year, try to choose a perfume with a mixture of cool and warm fragrance notes for the perfect scent. This will ensure that your signature fragrance is suitable for all weather and situations.
It can be hard to change your perfume to match the seasons, especially if you are used to wearing one particular scent.
As the weather warms up, we are best not to spray our perfume too much or better still, find a body spray with a matching scent.
At FM WORLD, we sell body sprays to match a selection of our female fragrances.
This gives the ideal opportunity to either layer your fragrance or simply use a body mist on its own which is a lovely product to use during very hot weather.
For many, they still like to wear a fragrance of sorts so a body mist or even a body lotion works well when it’s hot. What we don’t want to be doing is trying to compete with the weather and our fragrance.
The great thing about perfumes for men and women is that they come in different strengths. Not only is it reflected when it comes to the price but also in how light or heavy the scent will be once it’s on our skin.
It’s not just women who need to adjust their scents when it comes to the change in the seasons. Men do too. Even male fragrances can be overpowering and too strong for certain occasions and different seasons.

Spring sees its fair share of fragrances notes so just bear in mind that floral fragrances can be hit or miss. Some fragrances are very strong and sickly with sweet notes, especially Vanilla and therefore there are many people that will avoid them.
It’s about finding the right balance if fruit fragrances are your thing. It’s always a good tip to remember that if you are spraying a floral-based perfume or aftershave, to spray or splash it sparingly.
The fragrance notes can be quite strong for yourself and those around you if you overdo it.
