    Default What kind of scent keeps you awake?

    I usually work the late night shift and I would like to find a scent that keeps me awake and alert. Something that doubles as a stimulant. Is there a night fragrance that just gives you instant energy?

    Perhaps try Red Aoud by Montale.

    Basically, almost any scent, at any rate, energy levels seem to be better when I wear any fragrance, as opposed to the times when I'm fragrance-free.

    A bright, explosive citrusy eau de cologne would do it, I think. I find that Guerlain Imperiale serves as an invigorating tonic. It doesn't last, so you have to re-apply. In this situation I might keep an atomizer of it on me and blast it on every so often.

    Any strong vetiver fragrance, ie. Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire. That stuff will keep me wide eyed all night long.

    I would suspect something cloying would be better for this type application, just so you can keep smelling it as opposed to something close to the skin. Just a thought.

    Nooka has just one scent they make and it's like lightening in a bottle.

    vetiver usually does the trick...also agree with above posts on strong citrus blasts. GIT is also a fragrance that always invigorates me & wakes me up a bit!

    Red Bull EDT

    Any fragrance that projects and becomes harsh will generally keep me up. Not in a good way, mind you.

    Here's a good article about staying awake at work: http://www.wikihow.com/Stay-Awake-at-Work.

    As it points out, rosemary, eucalyptus, peppermint, and coffee aromas seem to make one alert.

    Resultantly, try:

    Roadster by Cartier
    Live Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent
    Body Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent
    Fahrenheit 32 by Christian Dior
    Eau Illuminee by Delrae
    Fleurs de Sel by Miller Harris
    Aqua Fahrenheit by Christian Dior

    Something sweet and/or citrusy always works for me. Maybe something soapy. Calvin Klein Eternity pretty much fits all three (at least, of the ones I've tried).
