Lemon's energizing and anxiety-busting properties are the stuff of legends. A mainstay in aromatherapy, this zesty element's invigorating aroma can improve your focus, alertness, and concentration - just what you need when wrestling with a particularly challenging day.
To enjoy the energy-giving goodness of lemon, we recommend Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. This D&G entry smells very much like delicious lemon sorbet, with middle notes of bamboo and rose and base notes of amber and musk.
Ahh, lavender. When it comes to aromatherapy, relaxation has always been synonymous with this purple perennial, thanks to its calming properties that soothe and calm the mind. While it's widely used for sleep, enjoying its goodness in the afternoon won't make you doze off.
Instead, it improves your brain function while helping you take down demanding tasks. Spray on Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea Lavender when you find yourself with a lengthy to-do list to help you focus and relax!
Feeling lethargic? The uplifting power of citruses can pack a punch - just what you need to dredge yourself up from sleepiness and unproductivity.
Scientists looking to unpack its power found out that subjects exposed to citrus elements exhibited increased physical activity and shortened response times. So next time you're feeling sluggish, try Lanvin Eclat D'Arpege Pour Homme for its invigorating blend of citruses, aromatic herbs, and sophisticated floral notes.
Sharp and aromatic, ginger is the closest you'll ever get to mind-enhancing magic. This beloved root crop has been used for ages in aromatherapy, and its medicinal properties are no secret. When powering through a deadline or writing complex code, try spraying on some Lancome Miracle to rejuvenate the mind.
This modern and oriental fragrance features slightly spicy and exhilarating middle notes of ginger, magnolia, jasmine, and pepper to create a concoction that inspires and uplifts the spirit. We like to think of it as a brainpower potion that smells phenomenal!
So many of us know of mint's exhilarating properties that we, scent lovers and fans of essentials oils, have a tub or vial of it in any of its liquid or rub-on forms. So beloved is mint (a combination of spearmint and peppermint) that perfumers have long capitalized on its intoxicating scent.
A study found out that some of its many benefits include sustained attention, increased alertness, and memory accuracy. If you're planning to pull an all-nighter, spray on some Hugo Boss Energise to perk yourself up. This popular men's fragrance features top notes of mint, pink pepper, and lemon that gently melt into aromatic notes, leather, and vanilla.
