Come on — I know that’s not just me, guys! Even science is on my side with this, given it’s been scientifically proven that scent has a direct impact on your mood. But why should we rely on sweet-smelling strangers to lift our spirits? It’s 2017 — we can bring our own damn good vibes! How? By picking our signature scent based not only on which packaging we like (guilty!) but also by how it makes you feel. To help get you started, here are 7 of our favourite mood-boosting perfumes.

1. Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamon

Mimosa and cardamon is one of those weird combos that just work. The ethereal scent automatically transports us to sunny, spring days and puts an extra pep in our step.

Shop Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamon Cologne.

2. Kai Rose Perfume Oil

Rose has been scientifically proven to instantly improve your mood, so this perfume oil from Kai is a great one to have on hand for less-than-perfect days.

Shop Kai Rose Perfume Oil.

3. This Works Stress Check Breathe In

Specifically formulated to help you chill out, this rollerball fragrance features a calming blend of essential oils like lavender, frankincense and eucalyptus.

4. Malin + Goetz Citron Vert

With notes of bergamot and citrus, this invigorating scent immediately takes us to our happy place (a tropical island, obvs.)

5. Byredo Gypsy Water

There’s a good reason this is by far Byredo’s most popular fragrance — the delicious scent brings serious boho goddess vibes (which is enough to put anyone in a good mood!)

6. Prada Candy

If lighting a vanilla caramel candle instantly puts you in a better mood, this is the scent for you! It delivers that same heady scent without being sickeningly sweet.
