After a long and for many lonesome winter people all over the world are still compelled to avoid sensitive contacts as much as possible which might lead to the feeling of tiredness and frustration.
Lack of joy is especially perceptible in these days of blooming blossoms and earth-awakening that many people are forced to watch through the windows.
In contrast to last year, when slight relief was achieved through a rush to buy clothes and appliances, the trend of the day is fragrances as a way to give an outlet for emotional tension.
Nowadays, when it is nearly impossible to maintain our habitual bonds with the environment, aromatherapy provides an opportunity to maintain relations with our inner self.
Thus, spring 2021 trends for perfume are expression, audacity, and a little bit of recklessness which are presented in the selection.

Heretic precisely expressed the arising feelings triggered by the notes and wrote, "If a flower were to engage in a pornographic act, what would it smell like? Inspired by the back rooms of a flower market, Flower Porn is a fragrance bursting with florals and herbaceous stems, so bright and verdant it verges on illicit. Fresh-cut orange blossoms, a hint of dewy roses, stiff flower pistils, wet violet leaf, oozing lemon, and geranium blooms—all brought to their knees by vetiver, our grounding dom. Soft young petals lick their stamens in this fresh and unadulterated blend of flower-on-flower perfume."
