Of course, florals for spring are a bit of a given. Though in recent years, perfumes with freshly-bloomed roses, gardenias, and more have gotten a much needed modern makeover. In other words: Not all flower-filled perfumes have that unwanted “old lady” vibe, and instead, are expressed in more youthful, sheer, gourmand, and even gender-neutral or masculine-leaning ways.
Bee Shapiro, the founder and mastermind behind Ellis Brooklyn, notes: “I've always loved the idea of a floral fragrance, but found it challenging in that it can read very mature. Flowers, growth, and renewal seem to go hand in hand with spring — but in the past, floral fragrances tended to go very powdery.” As for her brand’s latest floral-centric creation? She continues: “With Florist, I wanted to give the powerful tuberose some levity and air. I wanted this beautiful trail of scent that inspired springtime daydreams — something more akin to fresh cut flowers.”
