Ready to throw off your winter coat and embrace spring? Those first buds remind us that blossoms will soon be attracting pollinators to help usher in a new year of bounty. Spring is in the air! If winter smelled like the cuddle of warm amber, spring smells like budding flowers in sunshine. But you don't have to wait for flowers to bloom all around; you can get a head start on spring by blending yourself a fresh bouquet of sunshine in a bottle.
Let's get to the heart of it! The creation of a spring perfume begins with a floral heart accord onto which sunlit top notes can be added before layering on a base. A heart note is an aromatic material that has less volatility than a top note (most citruses) but does not last as long as a base note. Most florals tend to be heart notes, which allows them to form the core of a perfume composition.
