Words: Lauren Carbran
Your alarm going off in the morning can be a real shock to the system (just the thought of it makes us quiver) – especially after that unscheduled Netflix marathon you thought you had time for. Yep, we've all been there. So, we're here to save the day with our top picks of energising perfumes, which guarantee to wake you up when nothing else will...
DITCH: THE LATTE
TRY PERFUMES WITH: COFFEE NOTES
If you're running on caffeine instead of energy, it's a thumbs-down from us. The solution? Spritzing a perfume with notes of coffee. We're raving about the new Carolina Herrera Good Girl Glorious Gold Collector for her, with its standout gold, sparkly bottle and coffee base note blended with vanilla and almond, for a dreamy morning scent. And who says you can't wear it for the rest of the day, too? Next, meet Valentino Born in Roma Uomo for him, which proves that mineral salt and sage can give you a kick all morning. You'll be skipping out of the door before you know it – background music optional.
DITCH: THE NAPS ON THE TRAIN
TRY PERFUMES WITH: BLACK PEPPER NOTES
We've all been there – falling asleep on the train and missing our stop. Whoops! So avoid any transport troubles with Jimmy Choo Urban Hero for him, which will keep you awake throughout the journey. This electric scent is loaded with black pepper for a bolt of spice, and the hints of lime and lemon caviar offer a freshness like no other (trust us, we've done our research). This, people, is how you do 8am.
DITCH: THE ENERGY DRINKS
TRY PERFUMES WITH: CITRUS NOTES
Swap your morning energy drink for a fresh, citrus scent. We know… with so many to choose from, it can give you perfume-choice anxiety. So we've done the hard work for you. It's time to line up your new zesty saviours: The Perfume Edit Citrus Fresco or Kierin NYC Sunday Brunch, which are both citrussy unisex scents. We love the notes of sweet lemon mixed with lavender and rosemary in Citrus Fresco. And the blend of tangy bergamot and lemon makes Sunday Brunch a real scene-stealer. Now who couldn't wake up after a spritz of that? Damn right.
