Smell Like Spring: 5 Fresh Floral Scents

Spring has sprung a little early this year, and we’re not complaining. As warmer weather begins to tip toe in, so do longer beach days, darker tans, frostier drinks, and more frequent boat outings. And that smell – nothing says April showers like the sweet-scented flowers that pop up all over our Magic City. No need to panic if you haven’t spotted any yet, our favorite elixirs in the form of roll-on perfumes, dry oil sprays, candles, and lotions will cure your winter blues and have you dreaming of an island escape faster than you can say, “Wait, it’s already Groundhog’s Day?!”
