There’s nothing more appropriate to start the year off than with an uplifting, energising scent. Yes, make it your New Year’s resolution to choose fragrances that will benefit your mood and keep you smelling your best. Here are the top uplifting fragrances to beat those January blues (see you never, Blue Monday).
MARC JACOBS DAISY LOVE EAU SO SWEET FOR HER
First of all, what a bottle. It looks as if it has been sugar-coated and contains the sweetest mix of jasmine milk and raspberries, which sparkle elegantly on your skin. But it’s the daisy tree petals and sugar musks that are the hero duo here with their delicate and airy vibes, helping you feel refreshed and uplifted. As sweet perfumes go, Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau So Sweet a winner. You’ll forget Blue Monday is even a thing when you reach for this.
PACO RABANNE LADY MILLION EMPIRE FOR HER
Bit of a panic shopper? We’ve done all the hard work for you. Choose Lady Million Empire as your feel-good scent for January (and beyond). This vanilla scented perfume also blends plum and cognac for a foodie’s fragrance dream, while the orange blossom and magnolia will make you imagine you’re in a beautiful flower garden. Whether you’re exploring or on your daily commute, this divine scent will keep your mind at rest.
KIERIN NYC SUNDAY BRUNCH FOR HER AND FOR HIM
As uplifting as a Sunday brunch with your squad, Kierin NYC Sunday Brunch needs to be your go-to pick for January. The notes of jasmine and Earl Grey tea will relax and soothe you instantly, while the lemon and bergamot provide a burst of energy. What could be more perfect than this as a New Year gift? Treat yourself to this now for the best start to 2020.
JIMMY CHOO URBAN HERO FOR HIM
Possibly the most uplifting scent for men, Jimmy Choo Urban Hero invites you into a world of lemon caviar, black pepper and vetiver. Get ready to spritz it before you step out of the door, after your gym sesh and before a big night out. You’ll certainly be noticed wherever you go – and you can laugh in the face of Blue Monday while you’re wearing it.
