With just a hint of spring in the air, this uplifting Clinique trio will see you through winter’s end and well into spring – and may even put a little skip in your step.

While it’s still sweater weather, wrap yourself in the classic scent of Aromatics Elixir, a unique, spice-laden bouquet of rose, ylang ylang and vetiver. This dramatic scent is best suited for autumn and winter because it exudes alluring warmth. Earthy base notes include amber, sandalwood, oak moss, patchouli and musk. This fragrance has endured over time because it melds the warmth of exotic spices with the loveliness of flowers, and the result is sweet, sunny, spicy and heady.

This spring remember Happy, Clinique’s olfactory ode to a flower garden, and rife with jasmine, delicate lily of the valley, and carnation. This fragrance is a perfect day perfume for the office, as it’s light and pretty. Happy Heart is another light option for spring, as it’s a soft floral with the fresh scent of greens, which is also ideal for day use and warmer weather. The scent of greens will lift your spirit well before May flowers appear
