The first day of Spring is right around the corner. Next to Fall (Hello, football!), Spring is one of our favorite seasons! There’s something about the perfect mixture of anticipated warmness, with a touch of light airiness still lingering from the calm, cool winter. Time to break out those fragrances for Spring!
Close your eyes and envision your connection to Spring: do
you have keen recollection of the floral compositions springing up everywhere –
or – perhaps of the ocean-filled breeze from your vacations to the Caribbean?
Whatever it is, it’s hard to also not include that some of the leading memories of Spring lead us back to some of our favorite fragrances. Check out our top 5 men’s fragrances for the Spring season.
1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
Creed Green Irish Tweed reminds us of street-filled parades, and weekend bar crawls in 75-degree sunny weather – toasting up Jameson shots with friends. The cologne packs a strong punch, but has this cool, fresh finish to lighten the blow. It gives off a “mature” scent profile but with some modern edge.
The top notes are lemon and verbena – at the heart – iris and violet leaves. Not that we can smell colors, but the notes deliver a “green” scent, reminiscent of nature. And though the base notes are sandalwood and ambergris, the dry down of Green Irish Tweed is very mossy and forest-y.

2.Yves Saint Laurent Y
Yves Saint Laurent (YSL)’s Y Eau de Toilette fragrance is the new kid on the block. The cologne’s name symbolizes a generation of youth – literally! In comparison to Green Irish Tweed, Y EDT cologne is not strong and commanding, but has structure and fluidity. Think: white T-shirt, black leather jacket, and distressed denim jeans type of guy.
Notes of bergamot and sage offer sharp freshness anchored by cedarwood, perfecting a men’s fragrance for the bold, ambitious achiever.

3.Chanel Allure Homme Sport
This cologne is one of the most popular Spring fragrances. Chanel Allure Homme Sport dons a reputation for fresh aquatic notes, mixed with florals and spices – perfect for the outdoorsy, athletic type of guy.
The top notes of this fragrance are aldehydes, mandarin, orange, and aquatic notes. The middle notes are neroli, pepper, and cedar; finally, the base notes: white musk, tonka beans, amber, and vetiver.

4. Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Tobacco Vanille is a part of Tom Ford’s Private Blend Collection. The fragrances in this makeup are unisex, and can be worn anyone, anywhere. The initial reaction to the mixture of tobacco and vanilla, gives us warm, fiery scents – not indicative of the typical Spring day. However, you can pull Tobacco Vanille out of your collection on a cooler, Spring night – when you want to make a lasting impression in smaller, intimate settings.
Notes to mention (other than the obvious tobacco and vanilla strains): spices, tonka beans, cocoa, dry accords, and various woods.

5. Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne
What’s spring without being graced with something refreshing? Fruity? Fresh? Both? With top notes of grapefruit and tangerine – middle notes of rosemary, mint, paprika, and jasmine – and the base notes of vetiver, patchouli, and oakmoss, expect to feel (and smell) like raindrops n’ gumdrops with Jo Malone’s Grapefruit Cologne!
Though unisex, there’s nothing overly feminine about all the notes comprised in this fragrance. In fact, the lightness works well with the man’s natural musk, on a warmer Spring day.
