They say scents trigger emotions and memories. If you want to evoke a certain mood, wearing the right perfume should do the trick.
If you want to feel: Energized at work
Try: Citrus scents
If your morning espresso just won’t cut it anymore, spray on something citrus-y. Citrus scents are known to boost energy and heighten alertness – just what you need if you’re in for a long team meeting.
We recommend: Calvin Klein One Eau de Toilette, United Colors of Benetton Colors De Benetton Pink Eau de Toilette, and The Body Shop Satsuma Body Mist.
If you want to feel: Relaxed at home
Try: Vanilla scents
For days when you want to recreate the feeling of being cocooned in your room while listening to jazz music, a whiff of vanilla can be soothing and relaxing in an instant.
We recommend: The Body Shop Vanilla Eau de Toilette and The Body Shop Limited Edition Vanilla Chai Shimmer Mist.
If you want to feel: Romantic and ready for date night
Try: Floral scents
Floral scents are very feminine and have an air of romance about them. A subtle spritz will bring out your confident, playful side.
We recommend: Calvin Klein Eternity Eau de Parfum, Davidoff Cool Water Eau de Toilette, Elizabeth Arden Mariah Carey Ultra Pink Fine Fragrance Mist, and Victoria’s Secret Secret Charm Fragrance Mist.
If you want to feel: Like you just came out of the shower
Try: Fresh scents
Very light and fresh, green tea scents are great for weekends where brunch and a movie are the only things in the itinerary.
We recommend: Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Eau de Toilette and The Body Shop Fijian Water Fragrance Mist.
If you want to feel: You’re on a holiday
Try: Fruity scents
Apples, berries, peaches, and mangoes remind us of a never-ending summer. Spray some on to remind you of that amazing weekend by the beach, that music festival with your girls, or that summer love affair.
We recommend: The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Mist, The Body Shop Limited Edition Frosted Berries Shimmer Mist, The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Fragrance Mist, and Bulgari Omnia Coral Eau de Toilette.
