    Default Scents that wake you up

    Hey y'all,

    I'm suffering through a few weeks of work days that start with 7am meetings. This, while I'm trying to kick a coffee habit. As such, I've been wondering about scents that get you going in the morning--things that pry open sleepy eyes, make you feel a little better about getting to the office before the sun comes up. Tuscan Cypress has done a passable job today; might see how Sur le Nil works tomorrow. Have you noticed any scents in your collection that help you wake up and get going in the wee hours?

    The Different Company Divine Bergamote, Eau de Guerlain, AdP Colonia - pretty well any decent citrus eau de cologne does the trick

    For me, a few shots of Guerlain Vetiver are like a nice, cool, slap in the face to get me going in the morning!
    Also Clarins Eau Dynamisante works pretty well too in this respect.

    The olfactory slap on the face of Caron pour un Homme's opening lavender is guaranteed to wake anyone up.

    I really like Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet. Something about the pine and citrus give it that barbershop wakeup call - really great on a summer morning when you have to step outside the house into the heat and humidity...

    I second Lolita Lempicka. The heady anise and licorice command your attention! I used it every morning while out of town during a trade show. Got me going for sure.

    Miller Harris Citron Citron is slap in the face wake up call. It's as good in the shower gel form too for a wake up shower of tart citrus. Penhaligon's Fresh Lime is a good wake up call fragrance as well.

    Scientific studies have actually been done on how fragrance affects alertness. Citrus and Mint were the winners. Maybe start the day with a body wash from either group...?
