    Smile Your Top Ten Spring Fragrances - Women's Version

    Well, even those of you in the far north are finally seeing signs of spring. And all the perfume blogs are sporting their articles on spring fragrance favorites. As a complement to the men's thread started by sables, let's have a thread for our feminine top ten fragrances for spring.

    Here are mine, in no particular order. Several of these are, happily, recent discoveries:

    Frederick Malle En Passant
    Etro Dianthus
    The Different Company Osmanthus
    L'Artisan Mimosa pour Moi
    Henry Dunay Sabi
    Ormonde Jayne Champaca
    Jo Malone Lotus Blossom & Water Lily
    Hermes Vanille Galante
    Balmain Ivoire
    Neil Morris Dark Earth

    These seem to cover my scent cravings for greenery, damp earth, light incense, and -- most of all -- florals!

    What are your favorites this spring???

    I doubt I have ten, but I've been reaching for:

    Ava Luxe no. 23
    Ava Luxe Moroccan Mint Tea
    Creed Angélique Encens
    Diptyque Philosykos
    Diptyque Tam Dao
    Jil Sander Sun
    Hermès Hiris

    and I'm foreseeing more wearings of Krizia My Afrika. It's what I had hoped Eau de Sisley no. 3 would be - and which it was, on the paper strip. On skin - snoooore.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Ten, huh? Even if I don't wear all of these, they relate well to spring.

    1) Highland Lilac--Because it's spring, for heaven's sake, and you have to wear a lilac frag at least once. I understand that Ineke's After My Own Heart is another real-to-life lilac.
    2) Comme des Garcons Lily, my preferred lily-of-the-valley scent, although others have their favorite muguets.
    3) Neil Morris Woodland Strawberries. However, if you like sugar on your berries, you might choose Pink Sugar. Fresh Strawberry Flowers may be good, but I haven't tried it.
    4) Jo Malone Orange Blossom or La Chasse aux Papillons for their complete surrender to flower power.
    5) Stephanie -- Speaking of unapologetic florals, this is full-frontal gardenia.
    6) Bois de Violette or your violet frag of choice.
    7) An earthy Demeter scent: Thunderstorm, Dirt, Firefly, Earthworm, Wet Garden or anything along those lines.
    8) Bel Respiro -- Chanel demonstrates what end-of-winter hibernation smells like.
    9) Paris Roses Enchantees, the best of the Paris variations imho: roses, orange blossoms, violets, apricot, muguet, musk, sandalwood.
    10) Jean-Louis Scherrer -- Because I have to have a chypre no matter the season, and JLS is my fave.
