My pick of the best Spring fragrances

Spring is finally on the way, and it's time to ditch your heavy winter scent for a lighter fresher spring fragrance.
Just in time for Mother's Day I've compiled a list of the best new fresh spring fragrances so you can treat your mum or simply update your perfume collection.

Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y
Eau de parfum
What is perhaps sweetest about this gorgeous light spring scent is the name, L.I.L.Y stands for 'Linda I Love You', Stella's dad Paul's nickname for her mum. Stella says it makes her think of her mum and her childhood in the English countryside, so it makes the perfect gift for Mother's Day.
Predictably then it is a beautiful floral scent, with notes of Lily of the Valley. The stunning bottle fuses vintage style with modern art and would look perfect on any stylish sophisticated woman's dressing table.

L'Eau De ChloĆ© 
Eau de toilette
Lovers of the original ChloĆ© will fall in love all over again with this new lighter version. Re-worked for spring, the new floral fragrance is a refreshing blend of rose petals, citrus and patchouli. The bottle is similar to the original fragrance but in a fresh light green colour. With it being eau de toilette the fragrance is lighter and doesn't last as long as the original fragrance, but this is reflected in the price. This is the perfect fragrance for someone who likes to smell fresh without being overpowering.

Roberto Cavalli 
Eau de parfum
From the stunning bottle to the sensuous scent, everything about Roberto Cavalli's new fragrance exudes glamour. The shape of the bottle was designed to mirror a woman's curves, and from the tiger print neckline to the tiara crowning the lid, Roberto Cavalli has put his signature style all over it. Everything about this perfume is sexy, mixing amber with pink pepper and orange blossom, it is the perfect fragrance for a strong, confidant woman who loves to be noticed and turn heads.

Nina Ricci Nina Fantasy
Eau de toilette
This limited edition fragrance is inspired by spring and fairytale dreams. Like the other Nina fragrances it is sweet and girly, with bergamot, mandarin and pear, blended with cherry blossom and roses. Notes of brown sugar give it a rich sweetness. This romantic fragrance is perfect for the young and young at heart, and the sweet white bottle with apple and butterfly print looks adorable. At just £36.50 for 50ml it is very reasonable and great quality for the price.

Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola!
Eau de parfum
Oh, Lola! is a vibrant, fruity floral scent, making it playful yet sophisticated. A flirtier version of the original Lola fragrance, Oh, Lola! is a tantalising blend of raspberry, pear, peony and vanilla, creating a feminine sensual scent which is perfect for spring.
In a similar flower-topped bottle to the original Lola, Oh, Lola! features a fresh, translucent pink palette, which is enough to brighten up anyone's dressing table. 
Perfect for any age, the eau de parfum means the scent lingers on the skin, and once the fruity top notes have worn off it leaves a sensual warm base of vanilla and sandalwood.
