Spring has arrived. The birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing, and all across the industry, fashion followers are making references to a certain Miranda Priestly quote — you know the one. (Hint: it's groundbreaking.) And while the weather may differ depending on where you live on the globe, one thing remains the same; the very best spring perfumes under $100 will have you feel like you're lying in a meadow, sunshine included.
But what constitutes a springtime perfume, anyway? Florals come to mind, of course. As do fresh scents, like bergamot, lemon, or the occasional bright pepper — you know, things that are light and sparkly. Many shelve their darker, musk-heavy perfumes until the colder seasons come back around (though there is a time and place for a warm, romantic fragrance). And of course, you can never go wrong with one of the feminine classics, like a Marc Jacobs Daisy or Carolina Herrera Good Girl.
It's even better when your chosen scent doesn't break the bank, too. Ahead, 35 perfumes that are perfect for spring, and won't cost you more than $100.

Coach Signature Eau de Parfum
No one could guess that this sophisticated Coach eau de parfum retails for less than $100 — let alone at $62 per 1-ounce bottle. Combining together raspberry, Turkish rose, and musk, it's a complex floral-fruit scent that's feminine, to boot.

This top-rated fragrance from Pacifica smells just like a fresh bouquet of lilacs. Plus, notes of nectarine, ylang-ylang, and hyacinth round it out.

Elizabeth Arden White Tea Wild Rose Eau de Toilette
Fresh yet soft, White Tea Wild Rose Eau de Toilette combines the namesake notes into a sweet, easy-to-wear scent.
Gucci Flora Emerald Gardenia Eau de Toilette
Another perfume that's surprisingly under $100. The Gucci Flora Emerald Gardenia Eau de Toilette is intriguingly botanical — it combines fruits, florals, and earthy woods.
Child Perfume Rollerball Perfume
A cult favorite in the perfume world, Child is decidedly floral, mixing together jasmine, magnolia, lilac, rose, and violet with just a hint of vanilla.
Good Chemistry Jasmine Rose Eau de Parfum
Inspired by the Damask rose, Good Chemistry's Jasmine Rose is a floral, yes — but bergamot and musk give it an extra kick that'll have you reaching for another spritz.
Gourmand Hair + Body Mist
Any of Gourmand's Hair + Body Mist would be perfect for spring (although Papaye Tropique and Fruit Du Dragon might stand out the most).
Fresh Citron de Vigne Eau de Parfum

Calvin Klein Euphoria Blush Eau de Parfum
Bookmark this one if you want a springtime take on your favorite ambers and patchoulis. Gourmand notes of chocolate and raspberry make it sweet, while florals add freshness.

Jo Malone London Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne

Dior Miss Dior Silky Body Mist
Miss Dior is a classic for a reason. Delicate, feminine, and floral, the scented body mist formula doubles as a skin-hydrator.
Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum

Givenchy L'Interdit Eau de Toilette
Having trouble transitioning out of your wintry fragrances? This Givenchy scent — a mix of blossoms, musk, and vetiver — is light and deep all at once.
Clean Fresh Laundry & Lavender Eau Fraiche
