New scents for spring 2014

Sandalwood dominated winter’s women’s scent collections, but perfumers have lightened up for spring, injecting a shot of balsamy green vetiver into many of their new floral fragrances. It’s a good trend. The earthy and aromatic injection of vetiver (think lemongrass) lightens up and modernizes what might have been overly floral ‘fumes.
