The Best Perfume Pick-Me-Ups
Scent and your sense of smell is very closely linked to memory, which means your collection of perfumes can sometimes have a great impact on your mood. A particular scent can transport you back to your favourite memories, whether it’s a perfume your mum used to wear or a scent that reminds you of a holiday.
Perfume has the power to lift your mood, giving you the perfect pick-me-up when you need it most. Whether you need cheering up, calming down or just need a little nostalgia, perfume can do it all.
With that in mind, here are some of our favourite perfume pick-me-ups.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
If anything should remind you of your sun-drenched summer holidays, it’s Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. With a fresh, floral-fruit smell, it captures the essence of the Mediterranean perfectly. Opening with Sicilian lemon and bluebell, D&G Light Blue sits on middle notes of jasmine and white rose before ending on a cedarwood and musk base.
It is a truly refreshing perfume that is perfect for the summer season, with a confident and timeless scent that can be worn for any occasion.
One of the most feminine fragrances of the last few decades, Dior J’adore is crafted from a bouquet of floral-fruity notes. Launched in 1999, it is a nostalgic perfume that still remains relevant today; many of you may love it because your mum wears it and has passed the scent down to you.
Created using notes of peach, bergamot and Mandarin orange, Dior J’adore opens into a floral heart of jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang. It has the power to make you feel effortlessly chic, topped off with a beautiful and feminine bottle.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh
Part of the well-known Daisy collection, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh is a sparkling, light fragrance to lift your mood. With a carefree feel, it is a sweet and floral perfume housed in playful bottle with those instantly recognisable daisies on the bottle cap.
Daisy Eau So Fresh opens with sweet notes of grapefruit and raspberry, before moving into a heart of jasmine, rose, lychee and apple blossom. A base of musk, Virginia cedar and plum offers a balanced finish to this vibrant fragrance. It can be worn for any occasion, offering the perfect accompaniment to boost your mood.
Another nostalgic perfume, CK One by Calvin Klein was the world’s first unisex fragrance and has remained an iconic scent ever since its release in the 1990s. With a clean and minimal bottle design, it has a citrus-aromatic scent that remains timeless. Reminiscent of the 90s culture, not many other perfumes have gathered such a cult following over the years.
With notes of pineapple, Mandarin orange and bergamot, CK One unfolds to a heart of jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, orris root and violet. Its base is created from sandalwood, cedar, oakmoss and green tea for the perfect balanced finish. Resulting in a refreshing, crisp scent, it is an uplifting fragrance for every occasion.
