    Default Uplifting Perfumes

    We all have moments of sadness. Sometimes the world becomes too cruel a place, sometimes people are mean, and you can't avoid feeling frustrated. But there are perfumes that have the magic quality of lifting your spirits. These perfumes remind you that there is beauty in the world.

    If I had to choose only two perfumes with this quality, I would pick Acqua di Parma cologne, and Eau D'Hadrien. I think that these fragrances truly express happiness. They make me feel good.

    Which fragrances do you pick when you need to boost your morale?

    Florals get me happy. Tubereuse by L'Artisan is a good tonic for me.

    Funny you should say that.

    When I got home tonight, I put on Acqua di Parma Colonia for that exact reason!

    Czech & Speake No. 88 has a melancholy feel to me. Colonia has a similar rose note but has the opposite effect and lightens my mood.

    As soon as I saw the title of this thread, and before I even opened it, my first thought was Aqua di Parma Colonia.

    My choice might actually anger others, but I find A*Men to be rather uplifting, particularly during the very snowy winter we had here.

    AdP Colonia, Neroli Sauvage, and SMN Colonia Russa raise the spirits as well. There's something about a sparkling citrus that always puts a smile on my face.

    The moment I read the title of the thread, I was thinking AdP Colonia as well!!

    There's nothing like a good spray of AdP Colonia after a good shower.

    2nd choice: Friends Moschino/for an uplifting "orange-y" burst.

    1st choice: Monsieur Balmain. Impossible to be in a "funk" when I smell this. Makes me do the "happy dance."

    Eau d'Orange Verte will never fail to pick me up - its zingy and zestful nature awakens the senses that may have been clouded by depression or excessive alcohol consumption!
    Also, Carthusia Uomo is a blast of fragrant accords that literally blossom on the skin. A perfect pic-me-up from the Mediterranean Isles

    Guerlain's Herba Fresca. This is the brightest, most cheerful (cheering) fragrance. It's perfect for those grey overcast skies when the clouds seem so low that you instinctively duck your head.

    Scents with prominent mint notes are very uplifting to me.

    When I apply Series 5 Sherbet: Peppermint by Comme des Garcons, my skin even tingles a little, it's so minty.

    Mike, did you ever manage to sample S.T Dupont Noir?
    There's a nice shot of spearmint in the initial opening, which then subsides into a glowing ember of spice and woods.

    No, I haven't Dmitri. I actually forgot to keep it on my 'mint' radar - thanks for the reminder!

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

    For me it's Mugler Cologne during the summertime (which is quite long in South Carolina! ) and Ambre Sultan during the winter (which is, strangely, also very long to a South Carolinian! )

    I love anything 'fresh' I know that sounds generic, but stuff that's very cirtusey or aquatic makes me happy! One that instantly comes to mind, is Vetiver Babylone by Armani Prive. The Bergamot and Citrus blend perfectly with the earthy patchouli to make something naturally refreshing

    funny thing is.. probably half of my collection makes me smile at first sniff. ones that stand out in my mind that are either too perfect or have memories associated are:
    bond 9 west side
    bond 9 central park (i love bond)
    creed erolfa and virgin island water (reminds me of latest cruise where they were my two choices)
    comme des garcons red rose
    montale soleil de capri
    the vetiver brothers: OV and mugler cologne

    the more i think of it, the more in my collection i think of. quite a few make me smile and put me in a good mood.
