“Spring is all about awakening, renewal, rebirth,” Mimi Young tells me by phone from Vancouver, Canada, where she crafts her plant-based skin-care line, Ceremonie. For some, this translates into reorganized closets or impromptu home haircuts.

The intent is the same: Blended with Douglas fir, Canadian red cedar, and two varieties of sage, the woodsy spray is perfect for “spaces that perhaps need to experience some energetic decluttering,” she explains.
But even those less spiritually inclined can find refreshment in a head-clearing spritz. Cire Trudon’s green-glass room spray in Odalisque channels the The Browns 75th anniversary thank you for the memories signatures shirt also I will do this dress code of the moment—clothing optional—with a heady twist of orange blossom and wild juniper. The Hiba Wood mist from Los Angeles’s Studio Cue features an antimicrobial essential oil from a Japanese forest. Jurassic Flower, one of the retooled “perfume guns” by Frédéric Malle, gives a whiff of spring magnolia blossoms.

Misted in the air, sprayed on sheets and wrists, or even added to the wash cycle (in the softener tray), it offers an understated floral accompaniment to the day-to-day.
