Fragrance Recommendations For April 2021

The Spring is finally here, and gone are the days of short days, and cold long nights. 5 fragrance recommendations for April 2021 will mark as my fourth entry to the newest category on Scent Grail that’s here to stay.

We all know that when its fragrance related, fall and winter are our favorite seasons to rock “beast mode” perfumes that cut through the cold air and last the whole day.

But, that is over, and nature has woken up, the flowers are blooming, and you can feel the beautiful scent of nature all-around you.

As a person who prefers colder months, I’ve gotta tell you, I was ready for spring since March 1st. Here in the northern hemisphere, the winter lasted way too long than usual.

According to How Stuff Works article: “Warm weather brings out the best in fragrances, and not just in perfumes. We’re attuned to so many scents when the weather heats up. From flowers blooming to fruits ripening, we’re bombarded by scents.”

Let’s see which perfumes have I choose for this April.

How I Picked Fragrance Recommendations For April 2021

This month, I have opted for fresh and bright scents only. Due to the ongoing pandemic that unfortunately still isn’t over, I’ll skip clubbing and dating scents this time.

I do hope that by the time summer knocks on our doors, this will be finally over. The great thing about spring is that fresh fragrances don’t dissipate from your skin the moment you spray them like in summer.

It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.

For the last month or so I have tried some new things which will be included here, and I hope you’ll enjoy the fragrance recommendations for April 2021 I compiled for you.

Acqua di Parma Colonia Quercia

Why have I picked Colonia Quercia: I have said this many times and I’ll say it again. There ain’t no spring and summer perfumes like the ones coming from the masters from Acqua di Parma.

They are the best on the market when it comes to these fresh types of scents, and rightfully so since they have been producing them for more than 100 years now.

Colonia Quercia is one of the best Acqua di Parma scents in recent years that opens up with fresh and invigorating citruses and dries down to a full-bodied woody/creamy combination of Patchouli, Oakmoss, and Cedarwood.

Last, but not least, it’s probably the only modern oakmoss-based perfume that you’ll receive compliments on, even if you are a younger lad.

  • Fragrance Type: Citrus Fougere
  • Perfumer: n/a
  • Perfume Concentration: EDC Concentrée
  • Release Date: 2016
  • Age group: 25+
  • Main Notes: Oakmoss, Bergamot, and Cedarwood
  • Longevity and Projection: 6 – 8 hours with moderate projection
  • Seasons: Spring, Summer, and Fall
  • Occasions: Business and Leisure
  • Uniqueness: 3/5
  • Value for money: 9/10

Creed Silver Mountain Water

Why have I picked Silver Mountain Water: In my best spring fragrances for men article, I said that Sillage from the Armaf is the best next thing when it comes to the clone of this giant, but what if you want the real thing?

If the money is not the issue, I 100% recommend that you go for the full experience of this inky/green tea combination that started it all. I cannot believe that this perfume is already 26 years old, and still smells as modern as the day it was released.

SMW smells of ripped fruits, and green notes from tea, and the dry-down that utilizes sandalwood and musk will blow you away. Through some magic, when it’s all combined, the scent profile is mineral, metallic, and aquatic at the same time, and it will remind you to stand on the wet stones near the cold creak, as the cold white water is rushing through.

  • Fragrance Type: Fresh Aromatic
  • Perfumer: Olivier Creed
  • Perfume Concentration: EDP
  • Release Date: 1995
  • Age group: 25+
  • Main Notes: Musk, Green Tea, and Black Currant
  • Longevity and Projection: 6 – 8 hours with moderate projection
  • Seasons: Spring and Fall
  • Occasions: Business and Leisure
  • Uniqueness: 5/5
  • Value for money: 9/10

Hermes Concentre D’Orange Verte

Why have I picked Concentre D’orange Verte: Here it is. The best green orange-based perfume no one is talking about, and it’s much more affordable than you may think.

Spring is the perfect season for this Hermes masterpiece, as it will stay on your skin for more time with milder temperatures.

I have said this in my review of this fragrance: “Imagine taking a vacation in Greece where the best oranges in Europe grow. It is December and you take a walk in the early morning in the orange grove.

The sun is just rising, and the soil is still damp from the morning dew. You can decide that instead of first-morning coffee, taking an alternative by squishing orange leaves through your fingers, and smelling them will boost your mood and your mind.”

That’s what’s Concentre D’orange Verte all about.

  • Fragrance Type: Citrus Aromatic
  • Perfumer: Jean Guichard
  • Perfume Concentration: EDT
  • Release Date: 2004
  • Age group: 25+
  • Main Notes: Orange, Basil, and Cedarwood
  • Longevity and Projection: 3 – 5 hours with light projection
  • Seasons: Spring, Summer, and Fall
  • Occasions: Any occasion
  • Uniqueness: 5/5
  • Value for money: 8/10

Prada L’homme

Why have I picked L’homme: If I had to explain L’homme in one sentence, it would go something like this: L’homme is one of those smart wearable perfumes for any occasion that everyone likes.

I was quite skeptical about this one thinking there is no way that it could smell better than Amber from the same house, but it does, and they are different enough that you could easily own both.

L’homme is a nice and fresh, clean, and powdery suave perfume everyone should have in their collection. The whole composition is so well balanced that it works equally well both for men and women.

  • Fragrance Type: Floral Oriental
  • Perfumer: Daniela Andrier
  • Perfume Concentration: EDT
  • Release Date: 2016
  • Age group: 20+
  • Main Notes: Iris, Neroli, and Amber
  • Longevity and Projection: 6 – 8 hours with moderate projection
  • Seasons: Any season
  • Occasions: Business, Leisure, and Romantic
  • Uniqueness: 8/10
  • Value for money: 10/10

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sun

Why have I picked Light Blue Sun: Here is a best-kept secret standing before your eyes that everyone ignored. When you think about the best aquatic scents from the past 10 years, everyone seems to talk about Acqua di Gio Profumo or Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Intense.

But you know what? This one is more interesting than both of these two fragrances and more affordable. I just hope that guys from D&G will keep this fragrance for long enough on the market so that many more people can discover it, even though it is supposed to be a limited edition.

The familiar Light Blue base still sits below citruses, ozonic notes, and a combo of rosemary with a gentle touch of coconut milk. I love it, and it’s probably going to be my main spring and summer fragrance this year. A compliment magnet for cheap. What could you ask more?

  • Fragrance Type: Citrus Woody
  • Perfumer: Alberto Morillas
  • Perfume Concentration: EDT
  • Release Date: 2019
  • Age group: 18+
  • Main Notes: Grapefruit, Ozonic Notes, Coconut
  • Longevity and Projection: 8 – 10 hours with very good projection
  • Seasons: Spring and Summer
  • Occasions: Any occasion
  • Uniqueness: 4/5
  • Value for money: 10/10
