fragrance recommendations for march 2021

Spring is almost here, and slowly, we are transitioning from heavy winter fragrances to fresher ones. Thus, my 5 fragrance recommendations for March 2021 will focus on this transition from cold to moderately warm weather.

March is one of those months along with October where you have an opportunity to wear fresh scents during the daytime and strong, and sweet perfumes during the night.

According to Fragrances article “the perfume notes that go best with spring are crisp, light, and fresh – like mint, basil, orange blossom…and that the Spring is all about freshness, innocence, happiness, and blooms.”

I agree with this statement, but with a little addition of using those last couple of cold nights before putting stuff such as Amouage Interlude and Tom Ford Tobacco Oud at the back of your shelf until the Fall.

Feel free to check out my previous fragrance recommendations for January 2021, and February 2021 as well.

How I Picked Fragrance Recommendations For March 2021

I associate spring with the rebirth of the soul and mind. The trees are blooming, the temperature is slowly rising, and generally, we become more active.

Depending on which part of the world you live in, you’ll choose your perfume accordingly. I haven’t forgotten about the readers who live in colder or warmer parts of the world.

Therefore, I was careful to include fragrances with these distinct traits:

  • Wearable in multiple seasons
  • Affordable and expensive
  • Suited to wear on multiple occasions
  • Leaning more toward the fresh side

Here comes the sun, and I say, it’s all right. Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces. Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here.

Creed Aventus Cologne (Niche Fresh Perfume)

Why have I picked Aventus Cologne: While it may seem at first glance that Olivier Creed created a cash grab based on the mega-popular Aventus, Cologne has its time and place.

It differs enough from Aventus to have its own name, yet it stays familiar enough to know that it is a flanker of the before-mentioned perfume.

Pineapple note is switched with mandarin orange, but leaving the marketing side of things, you’ll get the Aventus DNA in the opening, no matter what the note list says.

If I had to sum it up in one sentence, then it would go something like this: Aventus Cologne is the mass-appealing version of the original that attracts even more compliments, it’s easy to wear anywhere, and any time.

  • Fragrance Type: Aromatic Musk
  • Perfumer: Olivier Creed
  • Perfume Concentration: EDP
  • Release Date: 2018
  • Age group: 20+
  • Main Notes: Musk, Mandarin Orange, and Birch
  • Longevity and Projection: 4 – 6 hours with moderate projection
  • Seasons: Any seasons
  • Occasions: Any occasion
  • Uniqueness: 3/5
  • Value for money: 8/10

Hugo Boss Bottled Infinite (Designer Fresh Perfume)

Why have I picked Boss Bottle Infinite: Infinite is an alternative for Aventus Cologne for those who don’t want to spend a Creed amount of money, meant for the same purpose.

Fresh with a touch of sweetness, very pleasant, inoffensive, and easy to like. Works equally great for casual scenarios as in the work environment.

Earthy and aromatic with a touch of powderiness coming from sandalwood. The famous Boss Bottled DNA of apple and cinnamon are still here but are hiding behind Sage, Lavender, Rosemary, and Woods.

  • Fragrance Type: Woody Aromatic
  • Perfumer: Annick Ménardo
  • Perfume Concentration: EDP
  • Release Date: 2019
  • Age group: 20+
  • Main Notes: Green Apple, Lavender, and Cinnamon
  • Longevity and Projection: 4 – 6 hours with moderate projection
  • Seasons: Any season
  • Occasions: Any occasion
  • Uniqueness: 3/5
  • Value for money: 8/10

Terre D’Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver (Work Perfume)

Why have I picked Eau Intense Vetiver: Aromatic, woody, and citrusy combination works best in the office or even outdoors, depending on where you work.

This Terre D’Hermes flanker focuses more on a zesty mix of bergamot/lemon with intense vetiver and pepper at the forefront.

It lacks the darker drier notes from the original which translates to a more wearable creation. Those familiar with Lalique Encre Noire A L’Extreme will find that the vetiver present here is even more tamed, so don’t get scared off in case you are not sure how well the vetiver suits your taste.

Longevity and sillage are solid, and you won’t offend anyone.

  • Fragrance Type: Woody Aromatic
  • Perfumer: Christine Nagel
  • Perfume Concentration: EDP
  • Release Date: 2018
  • Age group: 30+
  • Main Notes: Vetiver, Bergamot, and Sichuan Pepper
  • Longevity and Projection: 6 – 8 hours with moderate projection
  • Seasons: Spring and Fall
  • Occasions: Business and Leisure
  • Uniqueness: 5/5
  • Value for money: 10/10

L’Erbolario Méharées (Cold Spring Days Perfume)

Why have I picked Méharées: No matter how much I love Frédéric Malle Musc Ravageur, the truth is, Méharées was released before it, and many make the wrong assumption that is actually a clone of Musc Ravageur.

Both of these are very close one to another, and if you want to get the feeling of how Musc Ravageur smells, but for a fraction of the price, try this hidden gem.

It works for the same occasion, and the experience is very close, but don’t expect miracles. Musc Ravageur has quite better ingredients.

Ideal for those cold Spring days when you want to smell different from anyone else.

  • Fragrance Type: Oriental Spicy
  • Perfumer: n/a
  • Perfume Concentration: EDP
  • Release Date: 1980’s
  • Age group: 25+
  • Main Notes: Cinnamon, Amber, and Vanilla
  • Longevity and Projection: 10 – 12 hours with moderate projection
  • Seasons: Fall and Winter
  • Occasions: Romantic, Business, and Leisure
  • Uniqueness: 4/5
  • Value for money: 10/10

Maison Francis Kurkdjian APOM Pour Homme (Spring in the bottle)

Why have I picked APOM: A neglected, and underappreciated masterpiece from Maison Francis Kurkdjian that is easily in the top three from the house.

Some say that it’s similar to Gaultier 2 and Lapidus Atlamir, but APOM is a much better and smoother version of those two. Amber and orange flower work in the perfect symbiosis to create a warm and relaxing scent.

Once you catch a whiff of it, you’ll never forget it. An airy amber fragrance that stands in a class of its own. If you had to pick only one fragrance from this list to try, then, wait no longer, and discover APOM.

  • Fragrance Type: Citrus Oriental
  • Perfumer: Francis Kurkdjian
  • Perfume Concentration: EDP
  • Release Date: 2009
  • Age group: 30+
  • Main Notes: African Orange Flower, Amber, and Cedarwood
  • Longevity and Projection: 10 – 12 hours with great projection
  • Seasons: Spring and Fall
  • Occasions: Romantic and Leisure
  • Uniqueness: 5/5
  • Value for money: 10/10
