5 Sweet cherry blossom fragrances to usher in spring with

Can’t wait for sakura season to arrive? Sport the joyful aroma of cherry blossoms all year round with these must-have fragrances.

If there’s one thing on everyone’s Japan bucket list, it’s to go see the cherry blossom festival. The spring festival is a centuries-old tradition, also known as hanami, where friends and loved ones (and tourists) picnic under sakura trees over a wholesome feast. Granted, while the cherry blossom bloom is a once-a-year spectacle, Japan isn’t the only place to experience the magic.

This light floral fragrance has been designed to emulate the feeling of a cherry blossom blowing in Japan’s springtime breeze, and it knocks that objective out of the park. Far from your average cherry blossom fragrance, this magnificent interpretation of the note pairs the blossom with the bitter note of almond, which rounds off the fragrance and heightens the floral facets of the scent.

Better yet, it leaves a seductive trail that will follow you throughout your day, enveloping passers-by in the freshness of the spring season—and it only improves as the day goes on.

Acqua di Parma Signatures of the Sun Sakura Eau de Parfum, RM2,010

Acque Di Parma’s interpretation of the cherry blossom is vibrant, bringing out the best of the floral note by combining it with bergamot, pink pepper and jasmine sambac to emulate the magic of watching sakura trees blossom in the spring.

Underlying it all is the grounding scent of musk, which counters the sweetness and adds depth to the bouquet for a well-rounded fragrance that’s perfect for every day.
