    Anything citrus, green and with "white" florals--which is 80% of my 'drobe.

    Is this what the bottle looks like? It looks like Attitude (Armani), no? Or like Lego Cologne.

    Sorry Mike - just saw this now...
    Yes, thats the bottle indeed. Its dead sexy! The bottle has a similar tactile quality to Armani attitude, but its highly-faceted surface is extraordinary when it picks up the light.

    The searing mint is quite fleeting, but is a great intro to the simmering warmth that later unfolds.

    I know it sounds corny, but it helped me get through a difficult time. I found it very uplifting.

    For a quick spritz to "lighten my load" I usually reach for Live Jazz. Grapefruit, mint, and coriander are all elevating bursts of scent that stay "bone dry".

    The most uplifting from my collection are:

    Live Jazz
    Signoricci
    Outrageous
    Any light or green vetiver: Mugler Cologne, Sel d' Vetiver , Vetiveru,
    Carlo Corinto Vetiver
    Gendarme
    CdG Soda

    No specific fragrance. All my favorites will put a smile on my face at the right moment. Sometimes I'm in the middle of class and get a whiff of my scent and out of nowhere I find myself smiling like a complete idiot. I love those moments.

    And I agree, Eau d'Hadrien is very uplifting.

    AG's Eau d'Hadrien happens to be my SOTD. Thanks for an uplifting thread!

    I'd also agree on Aqua di Parma

    I would also add a few more (of probably many):
    Hermes Terre d'Hermes
    FM Lys Mediterranee & Carnal Flower
    Tauer's L'Air du Desert Marocain
    SL Fleurs d' Orangier & Fleurs d'Citronnier
    Bvlgari's Eau Parfumee au the vert

    Depends on
    But usually I reach for flowery vetivers - Adolfo Dominguez, Creed 1947, Vetiver pour Elle Guerlain.
    Neroli and petitgrain also works

    anyway, it should be clean bright and natural scent
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau. Yesterday, 5 minutes before I went to sleep, I sprayed 2 sprays from a good distance on my pillow. It truly smells like a "green riverside garden." The day was very tough, but for 15 minutes before I fell asleep, I was having very nice thoughts because of this fragrance. A great compliment getter too, and magnificent for hot summer days. My sotd for a couple of days to come. I need the good thoughts that this scent brings.
    Looking for a sample of Gucci Envy Me.

    My current uplifter is Sean John Unforgivable. I`ve got that one as a present from my GF - our love affair is quite short, but right now we`re on the emotional peak & that fragrance reminds me of her all day long.
    My current Fall-Winter rotation: Baldessarini EdC - Canali Men - Dior Homme Sport - Gucci PH I - Guerlain Homme - Issey Miyake L`Eau D`Issey PH Intense - Lalique Encre Noir - Loewe Solo - Terre d`Hermes - YSL Rive Gauche PH

    CK Truth, because the grass notes make me think about sunshine and summer. It's like I squirted on Chez Bond and went out and rolled in the grass.

    Yummy and (I think) wildly underrated.

    CdG 2 Man always uplifts me for some reason - must be the waxy aldehydes they use - because I find it waxy, fresh (though not "aquatic"), smoky-incense, and cedar. The freeshness keeps me from feeling too low.

    Oh yeah. Sandalwood is such an enjoyable aroma - it simply smells 'spiritual' for lack of a better description (or rather, I should say, smelling it inspires a spiritual mindset within me.)

    I've got to agree with this. It's quite comforting and refreshing.

    I also find Unforgivable and Dunhill '34 to be quite uplifting.

    You guys are going to laugh at this, but beautyhabit has this perfume called Smiley and it's suppose to to uplifting and marketed with this not and that note to take the blues away. A joke of marketing IMO, but the funny thing is I think fresh citrus lovers will like this one. I know I do.

    Probably the least likely suspect, and that would be: Eau D'Orange Verte. Such a fizzy, bubbly, scent it always put a smile on my face. I also just got a sample of Smiley, with a Beauty Habit order. I haven't tried it yet, don't know much about this frag. I guess I will find out huh!
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    Please get back on Smiley . I'm wearing right now. I've been doing some yard work and I've actually been enjoying Smiley today.
