5 Spring Fragrances for Men
Though fragrance shopping always involves a degree of trial and error, spring fragrances are actually easier to pick out than ones for summer or winter. Mild temps and less humid conditions means there are few variables for a cologne to chemically interact with, other than your own skin, so the way a scent smells in the store is likely to be true to how it smells when you wear it.
Of course, there’s no reason you can’t wear your favorite winter scent year-round, but if you’re looking for a fresh start this spring, consider wearing one of our 5 picks. Here, we’ve selected this collection of spring’s fragrances for men.

Prada Luna Rossa
Prada introduces a new masculine fragrance in Sept 2012, named after the sailboat and the sailing team “Red Moon” or Luna Rossa, which participates in the American Cup competitions. The new fragrance, considering its name, draws its inspiration from the world of extreme sailing, prestige, marine nature and passion for innovation and victory.
The composition is developed around the main note of lavender by perfumer Daniela Andrier of Givaudan. Intensity and freshness of accords are emphasized by the use of classical notes in new, innovative ways. Those notes include lavender absolute and bitter orange in the top, clary sage and spearmint in the heart, and ambrette absolute and ambroxan molecule in the base.
An ordinary, soapy citrus scent that is clearly aimed at those people that want the presteige of the name Prada but basically still want a colonge that is safe, inoffensive and not too “girly” with the standard sporting associations. Prada Luna Rossa opens with a fresh citrus and lavender blend, but it quickly turns into an odd bitterness when the mint, orange, and sage surface. The composition is an offensive citrusy lavender on the skin.

Top notes are pineapple, green notes, mandarin orange, papaya, bergamot, cardamom and lemon; middle notes are nutmeg, violet, orris root, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose; base notes are sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar and oakmoss.
