It has certainly happened to all that some women’s perfumes (but also men or unisex, depends on the tastes) just “worn” communicate something positive, beautiful images and a feeling of Welfare. This happens above all with citrus fragrances, although, as Simona Savelli points out Extrait, online magazine dedicated to artistic perfumery, “They often have the defect of being too lighttransparent and with little persistence. It might seem a contradiction, but from a sensorial point of view, their super power is precisely the high volatility index: if compared with other types of notes, given their liveliness, the aromatic molecules that connote them, in fact, impact with greater power the olfactory receptors, thus causing one shock beneficial which awakens the sense of smell and sharpens the senses “, explains the expert.
But it is not only citrus fragrances that make us feel better, on the contrary: flowers, spices and special arrangements can be real cure-all. Let’s find out together in the gallery which perfumes for women, men and unisex can be the perfect medicine for mood, according to your needs.

In this regard, “Many fragrances with an energizing power are characterized by bouquets with citrus notes, such as grapefruit, yuzu, oriental citrus with an intense aroma, or kumquat with its unmistakable notes, or I also think of creations with a green scent such as those with fig leaves, or tomato leaves that give us a boost, and black currant “, advises the Master Perfumer Maurizio Cerizza. We, in practice, offer you the caffeine concentrate Restricted Intense Café in Montale Paris, very aromatic, or Chance Eau Vive of Chanel, decidedly fresher and hesitated as a hypervitamin juice.

Good memories, huh? The warm air, the sun on the skin, the sound of the waves … All wonderful, but to avoid letting yourself be taken by melancholy and turning everything in a positive way, the antidote is Rue de Soleil by Rancé, which tastes of ‘sun and blue’ (cit.) or Ylang Ylang of Perris Monte Carlo, which recalls the sensation of the skin in the evening, when it still has the scent of sunscreen and exudes a natural, but irresistible sensuality.

To know: “Every woman chooses for herself fragrances that represent her, which highlight the best qualities, but if I have to imagine creating seductive, deep and sensual feminine fragrances, I would compose them with warm amber notes, and with slightly animalised backgrounds”, says Cerizza. We have taken this into account and offer you two potions that will awaken your dormant dumpling. The first one is Rosa Absolute by Molton Brown, one of the sexiest, most sumptuous and tactile roses we have ever tried. Or, Étoile d’une Nuit of Goutal, a concentrated poudré of femininity and sensuality, decidedly classy.

Who among us does not have a day or a period in which one does not fit? There is help: “All the fragrances that have reassuring and soft notes, such as musky, light flowery, those with Rose, an excellent ingredient, which has recently become the protagonist of many olfactory creations”, suggests the expert. In addition to the essence of rose, we recommend two real goodies: you knew, for example, that perfume exists Nivea? It has exactly the same notes of the cream that we all know, therefore it acts as a madeleine towards moments of tranquility, with clean and relaxing notes that will seduce even those who do not like intrusive perfumes. Alternatively, Sulmona of Coquillete: almond, sugar and vanilla (yes, the sugared almond accord) with a touch of orange blossom create a Zen cloud in which you can immediately find calm again.
You can’t concentrate
The effervescent character of the citrus fruit makes the hesperidate fragrances a real panacea for the mood, as if they were endorphins to be smelled (and worn) when necessary in times of physical and mental fatigue. If you need lucidity and a creative twist, try Zest of Sorrento by Simone Andreoli, an adult, cerebral and almost fortified lemon, or Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarine, which has a greener and more aromatic connotation; also, the base of vetiver and patchouli makes it perfect if you like men’s perfumes.

Finally, three jokers: J’adore by Dior, maybe in the version Absolueven more opulent and luminous, a distillate of self-esteem and positivity. Very interesting and stimulating for the senses and the mind Tonkade of the Olfactory Laboratory: an evolution to follow in the alternation of sweetness and sensuality until the sillage remains. Last but not least Libre by YSL Beauty which carries, as the name suggests, a sense of freedom represented through the notes of Moroccan Orange Flowers and French Lavender with a sensual and feminine twist.
