    Default What's Your Favorite Pick-Me-Up Fragrance?

    I don't mean for Friday night at the bar. I'm thinking of your favorite re-fresher.
    My new favorite is Muguet by Molinard. Bright, green floral with a hint of citrus.

    Chant de Aromes EdT by Guerlain - the only heavy-aldehyde floral fragrance I can wear, that is like an olfactory espresso shot for me.

    Millesime Imperial, the bright metallic citrus-y melon is just so wonderful that I can't help but smile when I smell it.

    Wait...I just mentioned my pick-me-up as in cheer me up

    As far as giving me energy to get up and go, it's Vetiver Extraordinaire or Rout du Vetiver. Nothing like a vetiver punch in the nose to shock you out of a haze.

    Mine would be something fresh and citrusy, so either Versace Man Eau Fraiche or Ed Hardy Love and Luck

    Default Re: What's Your Favorite Pick-Me-Up Fragrance?

    I would have to say its both Mugler Cologne and Bijan Nude. Mugler Cologne has been discussed, but Bijan Nude is just so beautiful. Creamy, clean, even somewhat metalic. Gardenia is prominent. More of a skin scent I suppose, but it has better longevity than I initially thought. 6 hours, maybe. Not bad for the type of fragrance it is. I think Nude is suppose to reference the smell of clean bare skin ( others words, not mine initially).

    A couple of sprays of either Nude or MC and I get refreshed, they give the energy to get back into the game ( of life).

    Mine is a bit of an oddball: Musgo Real No. 2 Oak Moss. It's really the purest green scent I've come across, like wet leaves and new-mown grass. Really bright, and an instant trip to the outdoors.

    Baraja by Acqua di Biella is a new one I found to be very fresh, and green and a nice booster fragrance to wear in warm weather.

    Yet another vote for Mugler Cologne. It's the quicker picker-upper!

    I also reach for Gucci Rush for Men, Fou d'Absinthe, and AdP Colonia. Conifers and citrus seem to lighten the air and add a bit of spring in the step.

    I 2nd Unforgiveable. Funny how Unforgiveable and Creed MI came up. I thought i was the only one who felt that way about them being a pick me up scent. Love the topnotes on Unforgiveable.

    L'Occitane The Vert a la Menthe.

    If this doesn't pick you up, you might be dead.

    Another vote for Muglar Cologne also.

    Perhaps an odd choice, but mine is Le No. 3.

    Monsieur Balmain for a citrus burst. And, dare I say it, that old Basnotes favourite, L'eau D'Issey. I'll get booted now!

    My choice of pick-me-up is L'erbolario's Energizing spray. This is only one of two frags that I have bought blind ($10 at their shutting up shop in the US sale) and its combo of citrus, mint, basil, rosemary and a few other herbs is perfect for a quick boost. I highly recommend it if you can find it.

    I love to wear this after a workout or on an exceptionally hot day. In other circumstances I find its cold nature to be a bit depressing, but when the body temps are up, this is a great refreshing frag.

    Mugler Cologne and ADP Colonia always seem to lift my spirits. Le Roy Soleil Homme is another that is bright and energizing and always makes me feel good.
