Of all the different facets of beauty, fragrance has always been one of the most overlooked ones. However, I think more people are paying attention to fragrance. For example, perfume is one of the industries that survived during the pandemic.
One fashion brand I’ve always loved is Kate Spade. A family member got me a Kate Spade bag for my birthday one year and I had it forever. Looking around online, I see that Kate Spade also released many fragrances over the last several years. If you’re curious about the Kate Spade fragrance line, here’s a list of the fragrances that she released.
About Kate Spade New York
Kate Spade New York was formed in 1993 when former fashion accessories editor Kate Brosnahan Spade designed her first sleek black handbag.
The handbag became so popular, it started appearing all over the world. Over the years, Kate Spade New York became a fashion empire. The company released jewelry, shoes, fragrance, and more. Kate Spade New York was purchased by Tapestry in 2017.
Different Kate Spade Fragrances
While Kate Spade doesn’t have the most extensive fragrance list, the ones they have are very popular. Here are some key scents to know.
Kate Spade New York Eau de Parfum
This perfume encompasses everything joyful. It’s a feminine fragrance yet very sensual, with notes of citrus and bergamot. Other fruity and floral notes are apparent here, such as strawberry and rose. Cashmeran and ambrox make this scent even more alluring. This scent is very unique and timeless.
- Perfect summer fragrance
- It lasts a long time
- Beautiful bottle and packaging
- Fruity and citrus fragrances don’t work too well for me
- Many reviewers said this fragrance smells cheap
Kate Spade Walk on Air
This is another fragrance that encompasses happiness. Kate Spade uses light flowers, such as lily, to bring out that joyous sensation. You’ll get strong top notes with scents such as bergamot. The fragrance will quickly fade to a floral mix of lily, magnolia, and jasmine. Over time, the floral notes still stay with notes of lily, violet, and iris.
Keep in mind, I’m only seeing the 0.34 fl oz travel spray on the Kate Spade website.
- It’s not too light but not too strong
- It’s flowery but still a little musky
- The travel size is affordable
- I think it’s been discontinued
- Not available as a rollerball
Kate Spade In Full Bloom
If you want a floral fragrance that’s more on the fresh side, you’ll love this one. This perfume is very playful, combining different flowers as well as green tea, peach, and lemon. The result is a very feminine scent that you’ll love. When you first spray this perfume, you’ll get whiffs of green tea and lemon. As the fragrance settles, you’ll smell floral notes such as peony, rose, and lotus. Over time, you’ll smell peach, white wood, and cedar.
- Lovely scent
- Many reviewers complained about the packaging
Kate Spade In Full Bloom Blush
This is a fruity and floral fragrance released in 2019. When you first spray this perfume, you get a whiff of lemon and green tea. When the fragrance settles, you smell peony, rose, and lotus. Over time, the fragrance smells like musk, white woods, peach, and cedar. As you can see, it’s a dominantly floral fragrance but also has a fresh and slightly fruity smell.
- Intimate fragrance, perfect for a date
- Not too expensive
- Not an overpowering fragrance, ideal for the office
- Great spring fragrance
- Pretty bottle
- Not the longest lasting fragrance
- Many reviewers said the perfume smells pungent

Kate Spade TRULYGracious
If green fragrances are more up your alley, you’ll love this unique scent. Launched in 2017, this fragrance combines plant and wood scents. When you first spray this perfume, you get a strong whiff of bamboo. As the note settles, it turns into a warm musky scent. While this fragrance has been discontinued, I have found it at a couple of online perfume stores.
- Fresh and clean fragrance, the wood notes aren’t too overpowering
- Pretty affordable for a Kate Spade fragrance
- Unique scent
- Not many people like green scents
- Smells very grassy at first
Kate Spade TRULYDaring
This is by far the most feminine scent that Kate Spade released. Launched in 2017, TRULYDaring combines cherry blossom and peony. As the perfume settles, it emits strong rose notes. While the floral notes dominate this perfume, it’s also very fresh. Even though it’s a feminine fragrance, it’s definitely on the strong side. This is a perfume recommended for evening wear.
- The perfect combination of floral and musk notes
- Still a very dark scent
- Perfect summer fragrance
- Pretty affordable
- Some reviewers complained the fragrance smells a little fake
Kate Spade TRULYTimeless
I’m pretty shocked to see this perfume available at Walmart! TRULYTimeless is more of a clean scent and is the perfect perfume for the office. It’s also a great perfume for those who love powdery fragrances. Cotton is the main note with warming cedar and musk that follows. This perfume was launched in 2018.
- Beautiful and fresh fragrance
- Perfect summer perfume
- Great to wear to the office
- Has that laundry smell-I personally hate those perfumes
- Pretty general fragrance compared to the other scents that Kate Spade offers
Kate Spade TRULYJoyful
Launched in 2017, this fragrance is very complex. You first smell energizing orange while also blending warm spices. The pink pepper and ginger notes are really what makes this fragrance unique. This is a great spring and summer perfume as well as one you can wear to the office and during the daytime.
- Fresh fragrance, very pretty
- Dupe for Clinique’s Happy
- It doesn’t last long
- Many reviewers said there are cheaper alternatives out there
Kate Spade Live Colorfully
This is one of Kate Spade’s sweeter fragrances. Floral scents such as magnolia and lily fill the air. The fragrance then transcends to spicy jasmine. Over time, it fades to white iris and violet. Unfortunately, this fragrance is out of stock on the Kate Spade website and I think it’s been discontinued.
- Fun and vibrant perfume
- Sweet but soft perfume
- Perfect for daily wear
- Unfortunately, I think it’s been discontinued
Kate Spade Live Colorfully Sunset
If you want a perfume that’s a perfect combination of floral and musky, you’ll love this scent. The first scents you’ll smell are mandarin orange, black currant, and bergamot. The fragrance settles into freesia and violet. Over time, the perfume smells like sandalwood and cedar. There are a lot of scents going on here, making it one of Kate Spade’s most unique fragrances.
- Sophisticated perfume
- Reviewers described it as a mature perfume
- Not ideal for wearing for every occasion
Kate Spade Twirl
Twirl is an older Kate Space fragrance, released in 2010. It’s a very fruity fragrance. You’ll first smell red currant, watermelon, and blackberry. As the scent settles, you’ll smell orange flowers, magnolia, and jasmine. Over time, you’ll smell musk. It’s a very sweet and fruity scent but has plenty of light florals to keep it interesting.
- It has an overwhelming smell of magnolia and musk
- Doesn’t last
This is Kate Spade’s first fragrance from 2003. I literally can’t find it anywhere, just in this sampler set. Still, it’s worth a mention. It’s pretty boring compared to Kate Spade’s other perfumes. It’s a floral perfume consisting of white flowers. The notes include gardenia, honeysuckle, lily, jasmine, coconut, and tuberose.
- Great summer smell
- Dupe for Marc Jacobs signature
- Discontinued and hard to find
- Reviewers complained the fragrance is too strong
Kate Spade has lovely scents, but many of these are discontinued. Want some other recommendations? Here are a few of our favorites!
This is one of my favorite perfumes of all time. I’m wearing it today! I feel like this is a perfume that anyone can pull off. Orange is the dominating note; while citrus notes usually don’t work for me, the floral medley smells beautiful with my pheromones. It’s Clinique’s best-selling fragrance if that also tells you something.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh
In the reviews, one person said Marc Jacobs Signature is a good alternative to Kate Spade. However, I’m biased and Eau So Fresh is my favorite Marc Jacobs scent. It’s not too floral but not too clean. This perfume is very sophisticated but also very vibrant. Overall, it’s the perfect spring and summer perfume. Plus, it’s my boyfriend’s favorite perfume in my collection!
Versace Bright Crystal
This is another one of my favorite fragrances and is a great dupe for TRULYTimeless. This is a floral fragrance that is both fresh yet sensual. Peony mixes with lemon and musk. You’ll also get whiffs of magnolia, peony, lotus, and amber. The scent is strong but not completely overpowering. While it’s a bit of a “younger” perfume, I think it’s a pretty versatile fragrance.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
As stated previously, I’m not a fan of fresh fragrances, but I would always recommend Light Blue to Sephora clients who enjoy that scent. Since many Kate Spade fragrances are in the fresh category, this classic perfume is worth a mention. This is a fresh and floral perfume, but with a Mediterranean twist. Citrus and cedar make up the dominant notes, with bamboo and apple added for more of a sensual kick.
Kilian Angels’ Share
Angels’ Share is one of Kilian’s Hennessy-inspired fragrances and by far one of the most unique perfumes I’ve ever smelled. This perfume takes the smell of barrel-aged cognac and breathes it into an invigorating perfume. It’s slightly sweet; you get notes of oak, caramel, sandalwood, cinnamon, vanilla, and praline.
Calvin Klein Euphoria
No fragrance is sexier than Calvin Klein’s Euphoria. This fragrance combines captivating florals and sensual fruits to truly deliver a fantasy fragrance. The perfume opens up with pomegranate notes and fades into provocative lotus, orchid, mahogany, amber, and violet. Because of its unique and pleasurable fragrance, it’s a signature scent for many women.
Question: What Is the Newest Kate Spade Perfume?
Answer: Kate Spade New York is the newest scent by Kate Spade. It was launched in 2020.
Question: If I Order Online, How Long Will It Take Me to Receive My Perfume?
Answer: With the holidays right around the corner, this is an important question to ask. On the Kate Spade website, they said orders are dispatched three days after placing an order, on average. Keep in mind, Kate Spade can’t send perfume outside of the U.S. You should also keep COVID shipping delays and the supply chain restrictions in mind when shopping for the holidays.
Question: What If There’s a Problem With My Perfume Order?
Answer: If you ordered perfume from Kate Spade and there are any problems with your order, you can contact Kate Spade’s customer service line.
Question: How Can I Find Kate Spade Perfume for Cheap?
Answer: Don’t feel like paying nearly $100 for Kate Spade perfume? The store sells smaller perfume sizes for cheaper. I personally never buy a full-size perfume; I stick to trial sizes or rollerballs. There’s no need to buy a full-size perfume unless you plan on wearing it daily.
If you do want a full-size perfume, shop around at different stores. I linked a few here. Fragrance Net is my personal favorite and I often buy fragrances on that website. I also linked a couple of scents at Walmart. If you’re shopping on Amazon or other smaller fragrance stores, make sure the store is legitimate and you’re purchasing the exact perfume. Some brands hide cheap knock-off scents in prestigious perfume packaging.
