Words: Emily Venables
Scents have a wonderful ability to pick us up when we need to it most; from triggering fond memories to calming us down when we’re overwhelmed or stressed.
If you feel like you’re on an emotional rollercoaster right now and need inspiration when it comes to perfume pick-me-ups, read on to find out which fragrances and home scents our staff at The Perfume Shop turn to when they need a little boost.
The Ultimate Pick Me Up – Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder
When I need a Pamper Session – Alien by Thierry Mugler
Sadia, Digital Marketing
On days where I’m not quite feeling myself, I love to make sure I make some time to pamper myself. This includes making sure I smell nice! With heart notes of Jasmine, Alien is my perfect pick me up fragrance. It promotes relaxation and, on a day, when you’re feeling a little down what more could you ask for?
Family Ties – Acqua De Gio by Armani
My perfume pick-me-up is Acqua Di Gio by Armani because I wore it when I was flying back to see my mum on her birthday after a year of travelling. Whenever I smell now, I think of that moment where I surprised her and how nice a moment it was.
Home Scents Takeover
I love using scented candles and diffusers around my house, they’re ideal for creating different moods and as a pick-me-up. I always like to have diffuser in the hallway, so I get a burst of scent as soon as I come through the door. I like to choose rich strong scents such as amber or woods in the winter or fig in the summer
What I really like about fragrances is that it has the power to rekindle memories that stood out in my life. Whether it be becoming best man for my brother's wedding, attending an awards evening when The Perfume Shop won Online Retailer of The Year, or traveling around the world.
Do Not Disturb… Empowered by ME Candle
I love a bath to help relax my mind and live in the moment. To make this extra special in the evenings, I light my Empowered Candle by ME which has notes of Orange in. Orange is commonly known for its wonderful uplifting and calming scent. Perfect for these long days in.
