It’s National Fragrance Day in the UK on Monday so what better way to celebrate than with a new scent to see you through spring. I’ll be swapping my Balenciaga B, a green woody fragrance which I’ve been wearing since it launched back in the autumn last year, for a much lighter powdery scent like the new Narciso Eau de Parfum Poudree, which I absolutely adore. Here are some other new scents to get excited about:

1.Narciso Eau de Parfum Poudree
I came across this new fragrance at a recent press event. What I love about the smell is its delicate powdery quality. The perfume is built around a soft powdery musc in the heart which dries down to reveal a beautiful warm base of white jasmine petals, Bulgarian rose, vetiver, black and white cedars. I’m totally addicted.

2.Annick Goutal Rose Pompon
Annick Goutal teamed up with Philippine Courtiere to create Rose Pompon – a contemporary floral scent that updates the classic rose notes with a bold twist. The heart is made up of several roses, including rose pompon, Bulgarian rose essence, Taif rose and peony to leave you smelling like a giant bouquet of fresh flowers.

3.Diptyque Eau des Sens
I’m a huge fan of Diptyque and I like pretty much all their fragrances. This new one is composed by Olivier Pescheux and is based on bitter orange notes. It boasts a vibrant composition with unexpected combination of spicy and woody notes such as orange blossom, bitter orange, juniper berries, angelica and patchouli.

4.McQueen Parfum
The most anticipated perfume launch of the year – Sarah Burton has created her first fragrance for Alexander McQueen. Named simply as McQueen Parfum For Her, the scent is based around key notes of sambac jasmine, tuberose and ylang ylang and is paired with pink pepper, vetiver and clove. “I wanted this fragrance to come from night flowers, the kind that exudes an eternal freshness once the day is gone,” explained Burton.

*And if you’re in London, pop down to Selfridges and head to the Avery Perfume Gallery who are hosting a series of fragrance themed events to celebrate this day. The London department store and the recently opened Avery Perfume Gallery space located on the fourth floor will host a series of events on National Fragrance Day inviting shoppers to experience a scent journey and meet the brand founders from Agonist Parfums and Blood Concept.
