To give you a bit of inspiration, Grazia's beauty team have picked their favourite scent updates to share with you...
1. Liz Hambleton, Beauty Director
-Go-To Scent of the Moment - It's all about Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli, £95, for me right now. It makes me feel dreamy and reminds me of lazy boho Ibizan holidays. I just can't stop spritzing it!
-Top Spring Scent - In the Spring I love to get out my Dior J'Adore, £47. It's fresh and sophisticated whilst still being fun and truly delicious... the perfect summer-in-the-city scent.
-All-Time Favourite Scent - My no.1 spritz? It has to be Ralph Lauren Romance, £38 – now, forever, always. So many memories!
2. Lauren Murdoch-Smith, Beauty Editor
-Go-To Scent Of The Moment - Right now I am loving Diptyque Eau Moheli, £50. It’s like a tropical beach in a bottle.
-Top Spring Scent - My top spring time fragrance is Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess, £45. It never fails to make you feel like you’re in the middle of a heat wave, even if it is April and snowing!
-All Time Favourite Scent - My fave has to be the classic Stella McCartney Stella, £45. Even when I unpack a scarf I haven’t worn since winter, the smell of the fragrance is just so amazing and comforting.

-Go-To Scent Of The Moment - Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, £95, smells good enough to eat - it not only proves that colognes are lovely for ladies as well as gents, but is also guaranteed to make you mouth water with its yumminess.
-Your Top Spring Scent - I whip out Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, £195, the minute the sun arrives. Fresh, crisp and light it instantly captures the spirit of warmer days and sunnier weather.
-All Time Favourite Scent - I really love SoOud Ouris Eau Fine, £140, which doesn't actually smell of an Oud at all. It's soft, understated and clean. Peach and plum meet iris cream and almond butter for a truly delicious spritz! No one else I know wears it either which makes it feel extra special too.
4. Angelica Hermon, Beauty Co-ordinator
-Go-To Scent Of The Moment - I am obsessed with Byredo Inflorescence, £130, which fragrance guru Michael Donovan got me on to. It's the most wonderful scent I have smelt in a long time and I have been raving about it to all my friends.
-Your Top Spring Scent - I love the delicate smell of Kai Perfume Oil Roll-On, £40, which I press on to my pressure points for a very subtle, feminine scent. I defy anyone not to love it!
-All-Time Favourite Scent - Although I don't wear it, I absolutely love Van Cleef-Arpels First, £48, which my mother has always worn. It's such a comforting and beautiful scent and brings back so many memories to me. I know in time I will turn to it as my 'special occasion' spritz.
