    Default Do any scents motivate you?

    Are there any scents that when you wear them it gives you the feeling of having more energy to be more productive?
    A caffeine effect if you will. And no not scents that smell like coffee but those that increase your drive or motivation or focus?
    Some find lavender having a relaxing effect in general which is why their oils sell.

    Do colognes motivate too

    Any scent I choose to wear on any given day motivates me.

    Yes. Fragrances enhance certain moods. Motivation is definitely one of them.

    As others mention, fragrance in general is a mood enhancer - in both directions.

    I assume you are looking for specific ones...

    Abercrombie and Fitch Ezra Fitch in the leather wrapped bottle and metal cap would put me in 'badass' mode - motivated to fight, if necessary, anyone that looks at me funny

    As far as an uplifting drive, focus, etc effect...there are several. Most memorable is Ramon Monegal Wood.

    Any frag with a noticeable sandalwood note.

    These types of scents are why I got into this hobby to begin with.

    As elusive and almost borderline disrespectful, unusable, impractical, unimaginative, random, off-topic and/or vague this answer may sound:

    most if not all of the personal fragrance wardrobe, not just current but also most of the tested section as well, since otherwise (even if just mere placebo) these fragrances would not have had this radically and strikingly positive influence on both personal, yet even more surprisingly, perhaps also on public and/or professional life they had so far

    I use fragrances to help me stay motivated to study and concentrate (I'm in grad school). Anything with a kind of serious, complex and subtle effect works well: Noir Anthracite, Sycomore, Royal Oud, maybe Declaration.

    Seriously...I think fragrance is interesting and engages parts of the brain that may not ordinarily be engaged during the workday. So I think it helps my focus and concentration.

    Dior Fahrenheit EdT is not something I want to wear on a real lazy day.

    It gives me a lot of drive when wearing it - maybe it's the "gasoline".

    Cool Re: Do any scents motivate you?

    Yes, depends on what I'm wearing. With Eau Sauvage Parfum, I'm energized because of it's clean, bright freshness. Keeps me feeling like I'm wide awake and just jumped out of the shower all day long. When I wear Polo, it adds to my carefree confidence. The stuff gets attention. You may be taken aback by it, not sure if you like it at first, but deep down you know you do!
