After an unusually dark and cold winter, spring is finally on its way! Most companies choose to debut their new fragrances in the spring, and what a spring this will be! After a year of lockdown—how has it only been a year—there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We have a vaccine! Some experts are predicting we may get back to some semblance of normal by July of this year.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, close to 10% of Americans have been vaccinated and that number is getting higher every day. Yes, the pandemic has been hard on everyone’s finances, so Fashion Reverie has been sure to include a couple of wallet-friendly choices.

This is a playful scent and conveys easy elegance. Another great feature is that Jacobs has graced us with yet another beautiful bottle. Your vanity will be enhanced with lovely blooming glass flowers.

Floral Street Neon Rose

Want to pretend you’re vacationing in Hawaii? Floral Street’s new scent Neon Rose is just what you’re looking for.  Super clean and floral, this perfume evokes freshly chopped jasmine and roses draped around one‘s neck, with notes of pear, galbanum, and Sichuan pepper. And since all of their eau de parfums contain a 20 percent oil concentration, they‘re super long-lasting.

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell

If you’re looking for a floral that’s not too sweet or strong, Fashion Reverie has found the perfect one for you. Wild Bluebell by Jo Malone comes off more fresh than floral with its bright, clean scent. The delicate sweetness of dewy bluebells suffused with lily of the valley, eglantine, and a luscious twist of persimmon creates a subtle fragrance. Not only it is unisex but with its light touch, the cologne is suitable for layering. This may be a plus or minus, but it’s Meghan Markle’s favorite.

Target Mix Bar Tangerine Squeeze

If you’re looking for something more affordable but still good quality, check out Target’s new Mix Bar line. Coming in at 18.99 for a 1.7-ounce bottle, you’ll be able to try all of the new scents. Fashion Reverie recommends Tangerine Squeeze as the perfect spring scent with sparkling notes of clementine, pink grapefruit, frangipani, honeysuckle, and vetiver. This can be layered with other fragrances or worn alone. The entire Mix Bar line is vegan, cruelty-free and doesn’t contain parabens or phthalates.

Britney Spears’ Prerogative

Looking to support Britney Spears in her fight for freedom? As Britney chips away at her father’s conservatorship, her fragrance company (under Revlon) is introducing its first unisex scent. “Prerogative is all about empowerment and confidence—we all deserve to feel free and fierce,” said Britney Spears, talking about the fragrance. This amber vanilla woody eau de parfum is balanced with notes of red calla lily.  Retailing at $32 an ounce, it won’t hit the pocketbook too hard.
