Time for a New Scent

Do you change your fragrance seasonally? Just as you would refresh your wardrobe by season, experts also suggest switching your scent every season. Although each season brings different weather conditions and temperatures that can alter your perfume, each season also signifies celebrations and emotions.

Let’s take a look at each season and see what scent family goes best for each season:


Spring is a time for new beginnings. Spring reawakens us and brings our surroundings back to life. We start to see green grass and flower blossoms and tree buds beginning to form. The floral scent family is very popular for spring. This scent family smells like fresh cut flowers, powdery and sweet with common notes of roses, jasmine, lilies and peonies.


Summer is a time for freedom and happiness. We spend long warm days outside enjoying sports and activities. We sit idle on the back deck sipping a cold drink and listening to our favourite tunes. The fresh scent family is perfect for summer. This scent family smells zesty, vibrant and oceanic with common notes of lemon, mandarin and bergamot.


Fall is a time for change. We start to see leaves begin to change colours and fall from the trees. Landscape turns deeper and more saturated with colours of reds, oranges, and browns. Fall is a time of harvest and abundance. It is also a time of gratitude. The wood scent family is ideal for fall. This scent family smells warm, opulent and powdery with common notes of cedarwood, sandalwood, vetiver and amber.


Winter is a time of calm and silence. It is also a time of celebration with family or friends. Closing out a year and being introspective of a new year. Cold and snow encircle us, giving us time to pause. We sit in front of a fire with a warm beverage. The spicy scent family is perfect for winter. This scent family smells warm, sweet and even a little spicy with common notes of cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla.
