INTRODUCTION TO THE SEASON Spring Summer 2019 The beginning of a new year marks a blank canvas and a chance to explore new approaches to life style trends and living well. The warmer weather is on the horizon signalling the transition to light scents. Brands rethink and embrace the spirit of the season by evoking the spring/summertime sentiment of flower-filled, enchanted gardens and field flowers to floral bursts, there is no doubt that florals remain on every perfumers palette this season. With the home fragrancing market becoming more sophisticated, add in sprit for adventure and discovery with the desire to try more unusual and complex scents is on the rise. The fantasy concepts are also making a comeback but this time the fragrance must have some sort provenance. Fresh and vibrant fragrances have always been associated with spring and so the trend continues in 2019, the demand will be bigger than previous years. Sweet florals are back with prominent notes of freesia, orange blossom, Lily of the valley, which one will be your new best friend..
