    Default Help me chose a choose a spring fragrance please!

    I would appreciate any suggestions for a spring fragrance. Let me give some info to help:

    - I live in NY so the weather will be between 45-70
    - Longevity is a must...8+ hrs ideally
    - I'm looking for a niche or better designer frag
    - Something less than $200, I only want to buy one bottle for this season!
    - I need it to be my signature scent
    - Needs to have broad appeal
    - Projection is important...nothing too beastly, but not too subdued either

    Any ideas would be very helpful....thanks!

    To me, Spring time is about rebirth, renewal and feeling refreshed and invigorated.

    To pick one...difficult, but it would be a vetiver (either Guerlain or Givenchy). Both would be excellent - and signature-worthy. Well under $200, and of fantastic quality.

    Cheers

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    ― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen

    Have you considered participating in splits to have different options and stay within budget. If so go for Jubilation and Black Montale Oud, very unique and one of my favorites as long as you wear them. If you can one spray on Black Oud it won't be offensive. Else go safe with Terre Hermes and save the money to buy Amoauge Jubilation or Interlude for NY winter.
