3 to try: spring fragrance launches

3 spring fragrances launches from Britney Spears, Dolce & Gabanna and Aerin
The official start to spring might still be a few weeks away, but as I write this, the sun is absolutely blazing and although it's ball-achingly cold outside, I'm quite happy to pretend that spring has sprung a little early. To help get you in the mood, I've picked out three fragrances that I think are perfect for this time of year - a couple are new launches and there's something included for everyone's budget.

Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle - I've been absolutely obsessed with this fragrance ever since it dropped through the letterbox. The name infers it should be quite floral, but I've found that the honeysuckle notes are quite subtle and instead I find that the grapefruit and bergamot notes come through in a much stronger way. It's quite a citrusy fragrance without being overpowering and works perfectly as an indulgent daytime scent. The bottle design feels reassuringly expensive, which is a good thing as a 50ml EDP will set you back £88. That said, 2 spritzes is more than enough to last for hours, so don't overdo it when you apply it!

Britney Spears Maui Fantasy - Britney's fragrance line has been going for absolutely years now and this is her 19th fragrance. I've often found them to be a bit too sweet for me in the past, but Maui Fantasty manages to be so much fresher, while still retaining that Britney feel. It mingles notes of tropical fruits and hibiscus flower and definitely conjours up thoughts of warm tropical days. Prices start at £25, so it's really affordable.

Dolce & Gabanna Rosa Excelsa - this little beauty is all about the rose. It blends top notes of Neroli and papaya with heart notes of Turkish Rose Absolute and African Dog Rose and honestly smells good enough to eat. The rose has often been a central part of D&G's runway collections, so it's lovely to see them tying it all up with a matching fragrance. I love the frosted glass bottle with it's rose flower top - it brings the whole rose theme together very nicely. From £48.50 for a 30ml EDP.
