Our sense of smell is closely linked to the part of our brain where our memories are stored, so it’s unsurprising that certain smells can have a dramatic effect on our mood. With this in mind we decided to pull together the five fragrances that leave us feeling uplifted and positive with one quick spritz…
Inspired by Paris, this new, limited edition scent from Diptyque’s Eau Capitale collection marries rose bouquets with fresh bergamot and warm patchouli to create a unique, feminine and sophisticated chypre scent.
Based upon the allure of a night’s lunar eclipse when darkness and light unite (how mesmerising!), this full-bodied fragrance combines white fig and bourbon vetiver with other luminous fruits and aromatic spices.
An innovative way to wear fragrance; with just one swift brush along the skin, these unique paintbrushes leave a long-lasting and intoxicating trail behind them. This one? Powerful notes of rose de mai and ambrette seed leave behind a feminine elegance that will ensure this scent becomes a firm favourite.
Reminiscent of the beauty of winter sunlight on a snowy day, this bold, unisex scent welcomes notes of bergamot, carrot seed, orange flower, jasmine and Turkish rose for a clean and classic fragrance.
Envelope yourself with the spicy and herbaceous fragrance of cannabis and floral notes of magnolia, to help elevate your mood and soothe your senses. Think of this one as a relaxing afternoon spent outdoors cocooned in nature.
