  • Lavender
    It’s no secret that the scent of lavender helps reduce stress. You’ve probably wished for a whiff of this when you’ve been faced with a stressful situation in the past. Research even suggests that lavender oil can promote a relaxed mood. A recent study even indicates that the scent of lavender could promote trust, too. All around, it’s a scent you’ll want to keep in your collection for those awfully tense days
    Eau de Lavande, which conveniently comes in a roller-ball for when you really need a pick-me-up on the go.

  • Citrus
    Love oranges and lemons and all things citrus? Well here’s another reason you’ll be into this scent, at least. It’s been noted that the scent of oranges has mood-enhancing and boosting capabilities and could help reduce anxiety, while the scent of citrus in general has been linked to reduced depression. It’s also believed that citrus can help with alertness.

    Orange Blossom Cologne smells like a pretty mixture of orange blossoms and clementine, while Fresh’s Hesperides Grapefruit includes notes of grapefruit and Italian lemon,

  • Cinnamon
    The taste of cinnamon can’t be beat (especially when we’re talking about cinnamon buns), but the scent this spice gives off has also been linked to reduced frustration and reduced fatigue during driving, promoting more of an alert state. If you’re looking for a fragrance that includes these notes (because this smell is one of your faves) try borrowing from the boys and use Viktor & Rolf’s Spicebomb cologne.

  • Peppermint
    Like cinnamon, this scent has been associated with alertness, soothing, and increase activity. You probably have a ton of peppermint products you’ve used for your skin, but how about sporting the scent on a daily basis? Guerlain’s fragrance, Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca, is touched with peppermint as well as calming citrus and lemon. Demeter’s Candy Cane Truffle, inspired by the candy in its name, is something you might want to try to play up around the holidays. L’Coccitane’s Verdon Eau de Toilette includes heart notes of peppermint and lavender and top notes of citrus.
