The 26 Best New Spring 2022 Fragrances

Florals for spring. Groundbreaking. But some of the latest fragrance launches really are, from a fruity explosion (we’re looking at you, Ellis Brooklyn Sunfruit) to the dainty Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Eau de Parfum. Of course, floral fragrances for spring aren’t the only option. There are woodsy wonders like Costa Brazil Aroma, which evokes the Amazon rainforest, and a spring rain shower in a bottle with Maison Margiela Replica When the Rain Stops. These are the best new spring fragrances that will be a standout this season.

Cartier Baiser Volé

All about the lily, the latest creation by Cartier in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent is exactly what you’ve come to expect from the storied house. Rich and sophisticated, Laurent said, “For this perfume I wanted to recreate the scent of bundles of flowers on the neck.” She just does that with the whole flower, from the floral of the petal to the powdery notes of the stamen to the freshness of the leaf, resulting in a delightfully decadent perfume. $144, cartier.com

Costa Brazil Aroma

Welcome to the jungle! Inspired by fashion designer Francisco Costa’s first trip to the Amazon, the scent is meant to breathe, shift and evolve on your skin, much like the wilds of Brazil. A natural resin that grows in the Amazon is the muse behind the woody unisex scent that represents the jungle at dawn. The exotic, smoky effect of fresh dirt and crushed greenery comes courtesy of a blend of white jungle flora, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver and amber accords. $198, livecostabrazil.com

Ellis Brooklyn Sunfruit

Think of all of the best part of a beach vacation—the sensation of sun on your skin, the scent of tropical flowers—and that’s exactly what’s in this bottle. You might even search your skin for tan lines after spritzing it on. Leave it to Ellis Brooklyn to give the fruity floral genre a modern makeover. The bright hue perfectly matches the juice, with top notes of bergamot, plum leaves, fig and pear; mid notes of jasmine, cyclamen, orris and orange blossom; and a dry down of amber, vanilla planifolia, musk and coconut. $105, sephora.com

Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Eau de Parfum

Aptly named, this delicate blend truly is delicious and smells good enough to eat. The crispness of rhubarb balances out the classic sweetness of rose, making it a quintessentially British pairing, much like the fragrance house itself. Raspberry, lychee, peony, pink pepper and a cedarwood-musk base round out the mix. $160, moltonbrown.com

Paco Rabanne InvictusAs if the bottle doesn’t give it away, this is a cologne for champions.

A mix of grapefruit, absinth, patchouli and cypress are in it for the win. $135, macys.com

Gucci The Alchemist’s Garden Love At Your Darkest Eau de Parfum

Henry Rose Sheep’s Clothing

Yes, the 10th fragrance from Henry Rose is named after a wolf in sheep’s clothing. True to the parable, the scent is much more than what it seems. On the surface, it appears to be a sweet floral scent (thanks to Turkish rose), but on second sniff the elements of amber woods and spicy pink peppercorn give way to a sultrier smell than expected. Like all of the scents from Michelle Pfeiffer’s clean line, Sheep’s Clothing is 100% transparent with its ingredients, EWG Verified and Cradle to Cradle Certified by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. $120, henryrose.com
