The same as for the other three seasons.
I ran out of GIT which is my go to spring scent.
I may have to give my Kenzo Power and Gucci PH II another try or else I will be stuck in my endless YSL rotation.
The same as for the other three seasons.
Creed Jardin d Amalfi
Acqua di Parma
I'm planning to reintroduce some florals, especially Pacro Rabanne Metal, Joy, Diorissimo, and Tiare.
Lalique Hommage a l'homme
Guerlain L'eau Boisee
This is the first spring since I got into fragrances so I don't have any scents to rely on. Maybe Xerjoff's Lira for late spring nights (I live in Nothern Europe, spring here = cold). Maybe Lancτme's Mille et une roses, or Il Profumo's Musc bleu (from last year's summer rotation)?
All suggestions are welcomed! : )
I'd like to swap:
Tauer - Lonestar memories
Guerlain - Jicky EdT
I finally get to whip out some Fleur de Liane by L'Artisan Parfumeur and Philosykos by Diptyque.

Got into fragrances this November so will be going to try out:
1. Terre d'Hermes
2. Spicebomb (wanted to see how it fares in warmer weather)
3. Aventus (hopefully i'll get my hands on it this month)
Guerlain Vetiver, Prada IdH, and Lacoste Essential will be in heavy rotation for me. But I will also wear just a spray or two of my heavier scents as well. Rive Gauche and TdH will be worn quite a bit as well
DG pour homme, dior homme, bleu de chanel, prada luna rossa, gucci pour homme II, tom ford for men and grey vetiver, possibly adding a few more as the months pass.
I keep my fragrances divided by season in four storage boxes. Mainly because it makes it much easier to pick what to wear in the morning more than anything else.
I opened my spring box today (March, April, May is spring as far as i'm concerned) & kicked things off with Dior Homme. Black stem.
Creed Baie de Geniθvre and Bayrhum Vetiver, Penhaligon's English Fern,
Halsten Limited and I-12, Bogart Furyo, Amouage Opus VI.
All my frags are entered in this "spring rotation" contest, but I'll most likely reach for MiP the most as I love that one in the spring. Also, I'm excited to wear Jardin D'Amalfi in the spring.

Most likely, quite similar to Hednic. Quite a while ago, I used to follow fragrance-related trends, dress-codes and a preference towards lighter notes, but now, it's far more anything in my wardrobe (even more so, because spring is usually not too mild, warm and sunny where I live, so heavier frags are easily suitable too).
These are the ones that I am really looking forward to wearing...
Creed - Jardin d'Amalfi
Creed - Virgin Island Water
Creed - Original Vetiver
Creed - Bois de Cedrat
Creed - Original Cologne
Armani - Acqua di Gio
Versace - Eau Fraiche
Balmain - Monsieur Malmain
Bond No. 9 - Chez Bond
Nautica - Voyage
Chanel - Allure Homme Sport
Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche
Chanel - Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport (blind buy - should be getting it Monday)
Chanel - Eau de Cologne
Mugler - Cologne
Tom Ford - Neroli Portofino
Heeley - Sel Marin
The others I wear in cold weather also...
Eau de Rochas Homme; Msr. Balmain; Bergamotto Marino by Ferre; Acqua Azzurra, also by Ferre; and the incredible and classic Moustache by Rochas just to name a few! Also wear Aramis, Yatagan and Kouros year round. Think I'm about ready!
I'll be wearing MI and VIW a lot. I've had a sample of GIT since November that will be tried as well (only wore it once).
Happy will be used a lot, too. l'Eau d'Issey will be in the rotation as well, along with impulse wears/buys.
I have Kenzo Power in rotation for sure. Anyone think this scent is femme? I could see that but it's sharp and ambery in a masculine way.
My list of some I may try to add for spring:
Eight + Bob
Angelique Sous La Pluie
Sisley Eau d' Campagne
Ulrich Lang Anvers
Homme L' Eau Boisee
L' Homme Infini
Jardin d' Amalfi
Cologne du Parfumeur
Fav's: Java Patchouli Iris Nazarena Molecule 01 Plum Japanais CC "V" Songe d'un Bois d'Ete Oud Shamash Pure Oud Villoresi Uomo Vetiverius Almost Transparent Blue Cuir 28 Rose 31 Jardin d' Amalfi Blue Encens Or Black Iridium Tzora Eau d' Italie
Lot's o' stuff, but I have to try this Heeley Sel Marin I see people talking about. Ordered a sample today!

Less London, animale animale. Sad cuz I really love both of them.
It sure ain't "pretty much spring" where I live. We're getting another few inches of snow in the next 24 hours.
