Thanks for the contest, Robin. I live in the US and my favorite mainstream spring release is carefully worn Piguet Fracas, Apres L’Ondee or Balenciaga Paris.

Chanel #19 Poudre. I would love to try these fragrances…thanks for the draw.
I live in the US and favorite springtime perfume, well at least right now, is Apres L’Ondee. But my favorites change and change and change. thanks for the contest.
I live in the U.S. In spring, I reach for my bottle of Trussardi Jeans. Thank you for the giveaway!
To me, vintage Diorissimo = spring in a bottle. Azemour’s been my favorite from fairly current releases, but I’m also excitedly waiting to get my nose on L.I.L.Y.!
Thank you for the give-away Robin, I’m in the U.S.!
I live in the US and I’m awaiting Lolita Lempicka’s L’Eau en Blanc.
I live in the US. This year my favorite spring fragrance is L’eau de Chloe.
I live in the U.S. At the moment, I’m enjoying Dior’s Miss Dior for spring.
I live in the US and my favorite mainstream fragrance is Issey Miyake L’eau D’Issey.
I’m in the USA and lately I’m enjoying the violet yumminess of Insolence. Thanks for the generous draw.
I live in the US and I move Chamade to the front of my perfume closet in spring.
I live in the U.S. I really want both of those fragrances – hope I win!!
My favorite mainstream spring fragrances right now are Gucci Guilty (for some reason that one really speaks to me, even though I don’t usually like those kind of scents) and Victoria’s Secret Sheer Love.
I live in the USA. I’m almost shocked to say this but as far as recent releases for spring that are mainstream I think I actually like Madonna’s scent, Truth or Dare. It’s actually a nice white floral. Not something I would typically reach for but in spring and summer I do like me some white flowers every now and then.
I live in the US. Spring is the time for Calyx.
I live in the USA. Honestly I’m still having a hard time moving away from my “cold weather” fragrances this spring (almost summer now, yikes) but I really like Crabtree & Evelyn Wisteria.
I live in the US and one of my Springtime favorites is EA’s Green Tea even though it reminds me of orange juice. But then orange juice is kinda spring-y!
I live in the US. My springtime favorite would have to be Chanel Chance Eau Tendre.
I live in the US, and my favorite springtime release is Guerlain’s Myrrhe et Delires. I’ve reached the last drops of my sample and now have to decide whether or not to spring for a FB! Many thanks for the generous draw.
I Live In The U.S. And My Fave Spring Release is Valentina…
I live in the US. I’m pretty new to this so I don’t think I’ve tried a mainstream spring release. Someone above mentioned Chanel no. 19 Poudre–that is one I’d like to try.
I live in the US.
My favorite is Calvin Klein Sheer Beauty.
Hi Robin, i don’t know where my comment just went but I live in the U.S and you have permission to contact me. Right now my favorite release is Bulgari’s Eau de Vert (sp?). Right up there w/Jasmin Noir.
I live in the US.
My favorite spring fragrance release is Jennifer Aniston.
I live in the US! My favorite mainstream spring fragrance release was definitely Mon Jasmine Noir L’Eau Exquise! Refreshing and delicious! I still need to get me a bottle of it. : )
I live in the US and I haven’t smelled it yet but I am projecting to like madonna’s truth or dare this could be wishful thinking.
I live in the U.S. and enjoy Cartier’s Baiser Vole and last year’s Jennifer Anniston for spring! Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria Tiare Mimosa is also a favorite and will be my SOTD tomorrow, I think!
I live in the USA and like Diptyque’s new rose scent, Kai, and the new Lalique scent (do not recall the name, but I got a sample of it at Neiman’s). Thanks so much! Aura looks amazing, I really love the notes and hope to smell it soon!
Wow, I am excited for the giveaway, I have been a big fan of the site. I live in US, and my current favorite spring scent is Lancome Miracle.
Thanks for the draw! The Aura sounds just lovely. I live in the U.S.
Cartier Baiser Vole is a favorite of mine for Spring, and I am itching to try the new extrait version. As much as I love the EDP the parfum must be divine!
I live in the US.
My favorite mainstream spring perfumes are soliflores like Diorissimo and C&E Evelyn Rose
Hi Robin, I live in the US. Just bought a full bottle of Bottega Veneta for spring. Love it! Now that I’m wearing it think it might be better for the fall and winter.
Hi Robin. I live in the U.S. and I bought Estee Lauder Jasmin White Moss for this Spring.

I live in the USA and my favorite spring mainstream release is Madonna Truth or Dare Perfume but I’m also loving By Kilian Asian Tales Bamboo Harmony and Robert Piguet Notes. Thank you!
There are just so many new fragrances coming out that it is hard to say, especially since I love perfume so much it is hard for me to decide, just to name 1 I would say that my favorite Spring release this year is Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina:-)
I live in the U.S.
I live in the U.S. and I’m really debating about a full size bottle of L’eau de Chloe. I also keep sniffing Madonna’s Truth or Dare every time I head to the mall. I’ve never been a tuberose fan, but there is something about this. I also couldn’t believe the longevity as I can smell it on my arm 12 hours later! Thanks for the draw.
I live in the U.S. My current spring favorites are Prada Infusion d’ Iris, Calyx,& Unconditional Love
I live in the U.S.A. and my current spring favourite is L’eau D’Hiver.
I live in the US. My favorite mainstream fragrance at the moment is Gucci Flora.
I live in the US. My favorite mainstream spring release is Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue Dreaming in Portofino. I like that it is fairly light and airy.
I live in the US, and my standard for spring is Jacomo Silences — but my favorite newish spring release is L’eau de Chloe.
Hope it’s not too late. I live in the U.S. Fave mainstream spring scent? MJ Daisy, love that one!:D.

When I want to smell spring, I reach for Hermes Un Jardin sur le Toit. Interestingly, I almost always pair it with Un Jardin en Mediterranee. I don’t know if this is an unconscious indication that Toit might be ever-so-slightly too sweet for me? (Coming from the gal who prefers florals and fruits.) Or perhaps I just love the woody smell of Mediterranee but need to temper it with a spritz of sweetness.
