Perfume Pop Quiz: Spring Scent Test!

Listen, we know that it's the dead of winter and that if you went outside right now, all you'd smell is the scent of frozen air and slushy snow. But, humor us for a moment and spring forward a bit to warmer winds, sunny skies, and that indistinguishable scent of the new season. You can almost smell it, right?

The best way to celebrate spring without simply heading south until April? Sporting the newest spring scents. From flowery mists to sexy parfums, there are so many fabulous picks hitting shelves right now that we had a hard time choosing which ones we wanted to try first. Time for another round of Perfume Pop Quiz!
We borrowed the noses of six of our most discerning coworkers to blind test six brand-new sniffers and give their totally unbiased opinions — and, like last time, they held nothing back. Tune in to see which perfumes passed the test and which fell flat — the results may surprise you!
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black, $75, available at Sephora; Halle Berry Exotic Jasmine, $28, available at Kohl's; Philosophy Loveswept, $46, available at Macy's; Capsule Parfums Jaunt, $38, available at Capsule Parfums; Elie Saab L'Eau Couture, $88, available in April at Neiman Marcus; Show Beauty Decadence Hair Fragrance, $85, available at Harrods.
