Fragrances perfect for sunny days

A modern classic of the fragrance world, the now iconic Marc Jacobs Daisy may turn 10 this year (a birthday that’s being celebrated with a new campaign fronted by supermodel Kaia Gerber) but it hasn’t lost any of its charm.
It’s vibrant blend of strawberry, jasmine and vanilla was made for sunny spring days.

#3: Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely
Lovely was the first signature scent ever created by the super-stylish Sarah Jessica Parker, and it’s still the best – especially when you’re looking for a delicate, soft spring perfume.
Classy and intimate, it’s a floral blend of lavender, white orchid and rosewood that isn’t too overpowering.
