These Five Fragrances Will Truly Help Spark Lots Of Joy

We all have those days where we’re in need of a major pick-me-up and ice cream just won’t do the trick. So, instead of reaching for that second scoop, we’ve got something better lined up for you – energising scents that will take your mood from zero to hundred with just a few sprays.  

Called out as a big beauty trend for this year, mood-boosting scents are finding a place in everyone’s fragrance wardrobes. These compositions have the power to completely transform your mood and productivity levels, thanks to the ability that certain scents have to play with the connection that our brains make with emotions and memories. 

So, are you ready to give yourself a dose of joy, or calm your nerves? Here are some of our top picks you’ll love to discover.

This refreshing citrus fragrance is one that has managed to build a cult-following for itself. Layered with sparkling notes of grapefruit, bergamot, and spring mimosa, this will give your mood a boost akin to the one you get right after working out.

Equal parts energising and romantic, this fragrance is perfect for a day out on the town with your partner. With floral notes at its heart and energising top notes, it makes for a great everyday scent for women. Plus, the bottle is totally shelfie-worthy!

Wish you could just take a *long*, revitalising vacation and transport yourself to the south of France? Well, with L’Occitane’s fragrance, you can get a step closer to that. Created with verbena from Provence and topped off with notes like lemon and orange, this composition makes for the perfect summer scent.

Positive vibes only here! This Chopard fragrance is like a burst of energy packed into a bright, yellow flanker. The zesty notes of lemon and bergamot blended with apple and cucumber will give you the motivation to tick off every task from your productivity journal.

Looking for a scent that gets you in the right headspace before you go to work? This fragrance from Missoni is a mix of citrus and floral notes that evoke feelings of sunshine and youthfulness, resulting in a happy mood all day long. Grab this one ASAP.
