    a good lavender makes me happy and peppy.
    l'occitane's lavender harvest for example.

    I tend to reach for Givenchy Play, believe it or not. It is, as its name indicates, playful.

    Another very playful scent that I enjoy, despite its overt synthetic qualities, is Outrageous! by Frederic Malle. Steam cleaned orange blossom and apples. Fun!

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    Hard to tell, almost anything both in my wardrobe, as well as on my wish list/test list, maybe, on a certain level, this is one of the reasons while I chose to enjoy these frags in the first place

    i agree with eau sauvage and lavender scents. any great citrus/cologne will work. simple, good-humoured vanilla scents work too, like pour un homme (vanilla+lavender) or tocade (vanilla+rose). different forms of being down ask for different scents, just lift the cap and smell the bottle, and see if it works. if it makes you feel better, spray it on. if it doesn't, find something else.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I'm sure this is very cliché, but I'll go with Clinique's Happy for Men.

    Most uplifting for me is Energizer by Boadicea the Victorious, with Carthusia Mediterraneo coming in a close second.
    My favourite No.1 scent is Xerjoff Nio, but it's not as uplifting.

    The Different Company Bergamote.

    Their Osmanthus also does the trick

    Diptyque Eau Lente for sustained lifting.

    Amouage Homage if serious lifting is required.

    Citrus is reputed to be uplifting, so +1 for Blanche.
    Playful scents too, such as Le Male.

    Boss Bottled, Lanvin L'Homme, and D&G Pour Homme! These alway mellow me out and just always puts a smile on my face! These I wear on days where I know they're going to be stressful. To me, they smell great but are also very comforting! I love them!

    Laphroaig?? I second that! Yes, I have ''my'' piece of land thanks to Laphroaig.

    But in the world outside of top notch Scotch, Amouage Opus II does a mighty fine job of uplifting as does Creed's Bois du Portugal.
