    I would stay away from any fragrance you like because you are going to have negative associations when you wear it in the future.

    Try a fragrance with a solid lavender note...Caron Pour un Homme comes to mind...lavender can have a very calming effect.

    what hep said.. but what i find myself doing just for a quick pick-me-up is to spray something that has a lot of positive memories tied to it.. seems to take my mind back to the memories associated with it.

    Anything with Lavender has a calming or soothing effect on me. Fragrances heavy on the wood such as Wonderwood and Rocky Mountain He Wood also put me in a good mood.

    Datura Blanche by Keiko Mecheri. Very warm and soft and comforting. It's somewhat similar to Dior Hypnotic Poison.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    Lavender Palm by Tom Ford - Upon application, one is treated to a whirlwind of lavender. A wonderfully floral and slightly spicy lavender, with an attendant camphor aspect, wafts in the forefront of a citric, herbal background, furnished by the commingling of tangy lemon, bittersweet bergamot as well as a green, creamy and slightly salty clary sage. Transitioning to the heart, the lavender takes on a more subdued and fresh, floral sweetness, and interplays with the sweet, baby powder of nerium oleander as well as the airy, aromatic sweetness of lime blossom. A grassy and balmy undertone from a palm leaf accord carries the florals to the awaiting base. A rich oakmoss imparts its foresty greenness, while a somewhat salty vetiver infuses its grassy earthiness. A sprinkling of citrusy frankincense complements the green blend. A pleasing drydown ensues. This elegant and high-quality composition leans to the masculine side, and has average projection and longevity. And, although it is can be considered an all-season fragrance, this scent will shine in warmer weather.

    Caron Pour un Homme, yes. It was released at the height of the Great Depression, seemingly with the very brief of soothing the spirits of those who were depressed. I am sure it worked. I once smelled it (sorry for this anecdote yet again) on a police officer working a gritty and unpleasant night beat, and I imagine it really did soothe those around him, and he himself, with good effect.

    Of the Guerlain eaux, I would suggest Eau de Cologne Imperiale over Eau du Coq. I find Eau du Coq more 'refreshing' than a bright and optimistic stimulant; whilst Imperiale has this bright lime-flower note that truly does lift the spirits when they are muddied or confused.
