Put a spring in your step with a new fragrance for a new season. These summery scents are ideal for the warm days ahead.

Sheer Stella (HK$450/100ml) returns in a bottle featuring a fragile rose design by British artist Philip Jones. The scent boasts an organic rose base with notes of green apple and frosted lemon, peony and warm amber. It is available at Lane Crawford, Times Square, Causeway Bay.

Opium eau de toilette by YSL (HK$550/50ml, HK$835/90ml) has been given a makeover, with a reinvented bottle for collectors. Keeping to the original dark-amber shade, the bottle has a black cord inside that plunges into the liquid. The eau de toilette is the classic mix of mandarin, bergamot and jasmine enlivened by spicy carnation. It is available at Sogo, 12 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Crabtree & Evelyn's India Hicks Island Night eau de toilette (HK$395/100ml) comes in a dramatic black decanter-style bottle and features a floral heart of purple and white orchid, jasmine, green-island palm and orange-blossom nectar, finished with a woody accord. It is available at Crabtree & Evelyn, Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Harajuku Lovers' New Sunshine Cuties fragrances (HK$205/25ml) come in five versions: Love, Lil Angel, Music, Baby and G. Baby blends crisp mandarin and white poppy while G has notes of coconut milk, white peach and vanilla bean. The scents are available at Harvey Nichols, The Landmark, Central.
