This month sees the return of the Chelsea Flower Show (May 24-28), when the world's best horticulturists descend upon London in the hope that their show gardens will attract an elusive gold medal.

But don't worry if you can't make it to the capital - you can still enjoy the joyous aroma of gardens in full bloom, thanks to the bumper crop of flower and foliage-inspired fragrances that have landed this spring.

From subtle and herbaceous, to sweet and heady, there's a scent for everyone, you'll just have to pick your own...

1. The wild one

Part of the limited edition Herb Garden collection, Jo Malone Wild Strawberry & Parsley, from £44, melds the savoury tang of flat-leaf parsley with the juicy sweetness of strawberry and blackcurrant, resulting in a gorgeously green blend.

2. The queen of flowers

Opening with a burst of ravishing pink rose, L'Occitane Violette & Rose de Mai Eau de Toilette, £52, dries down to reveal a heart of zesty mandarin and bergamot. Musk and sandalwood combine to complete this complex, creamy concoction.

3. The personal perfume

The personal perfume

When fashion editor Jo Levin ran out of the scent oil that had garnered her so many compliments over the years, she decided to enlist the help of Escentric Molecules founder Jeff Lounds to recreate the fragrance. In OdeJo Eau de Toilette, £55, aromatic lily and Tahitian rose meet their yang in cucumber oil and blue sea kelp, the blend evoking dusk during summertime.
