Perfumes that smell more natural or floral are the surefire hits for spring, but Dora has some other suggestions to shake things up a little…

Why should you change what fragrances you’re wearing in the transition from winter to spring?

“Spring is a symbol of rebirth and renewal, of victory on the dark and cold. Writers, singers have always been inspired by this season, so are perfumers,” Dora explains. “Spring is also celebrating joy and love. So we might want to wear not only a new perfume but one that will participate to this general return of light like the last fragrances I have created: Happy Chopard Felicia Roses and Lemon Dulci.”

What fragrance families should you gravitate towards in spring?

“There are no rules, but you might want to explore a great floral, a citrus fresh, a woody note, olfactive families referring to nature,” says Dora.

What perfumes notes are perfect for spring?

“Any note that allows you to live the experience of this happy transition from freeze to bloom! Fresh floral notes obviously but also green notes, soft woody notes, even earthy notes, spring is also about texture: spring is crispy, juicy, crunchy and punchy!” Dora says.

What should people who don’t like traditional floral spring fragrances do?

“There are many alternatives, for any season the right fragrance is like the right lover, the one that makes you feel good!” Dora explains.

How should you switch up your scents for spring?

It doesn’t have to just be about the perfume notes. You can also wear a lighter variant of your favourite fragrance! “It can be both. Playing on notes variation or playing on the volume. Both can give you a new olfactive experience,” says Dora.
