If you imagine blissfully relaxing on a remote island every time you have condensation on Michael Kors Bermuda, here's why: "Notes tropical simultaneously joyful and challenging," said Craig Warren, former vice president and director of Science perfume International Flavors and Fragrances and now a visiting scholar at the University of California at San Diego. This means that exotic notes like passion flowers and orchids can instantly transport themselves to your psyche when you're stuck in a cabin of a disaster. (To give your mood a few days of well-deserved vacation, try Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise or Halle Berry Pure Orchid.)
Scents of chocolate are happymakers, too. Just like eating the stuff releases endorphins, a hint of chocolate laced may have a similar effect. And no, you do not need to feel like you're smuggling a bag of giant M & Ms to get the benefits. (But if that's your thing, try Demeter Hershey's Special Dark Cologne Spray-on about the closest thing is to coat your body with a power of cocoa). For a subtle way to please your sweet tooth, fragrances such as Missoni Missoni, Thierry Mugler Angel, and Vera Wang Princess note temper chocolate by combining them with floral, fruity, and woody accords.
And if you can not be able to judge a book by its cover, sometimes the name of a perfume can be a gift for what's inside. As expected, Clinique Happy does not exactly smell dark or brooding. Instead, that smile-inducing as they come, the mixture of Hawaiian wedding flower with notes of citrus such as grapefruit, edifying. Similarly, ecstasy called Euphoria by Calvin Klein acts as an upper limit to persimmons happy, while the Mandarin brings optimism to the mix Is not Life Grand is beautiful Sarah Jessica Parker.
But if you're really looking to get a top of your perfume, perhaps the best advice is to choose something that simply requires that others take the view-in the right direction. Because, really, who does not like to hear an unsolicited offer "You feel amazing!" a stranger? So next time you hit the perfume counter in the search for a new perfume, take your time, instead of a spray with wild abandon and buy one there, ask for samples of your favorites, take them home, and wear different every day. "Living with for a while," said Harry Slatkin Slatkin 's& Co. "The samples are the best friend a girl." Then make the one that pays you a compliment on the subway or (already thinking positively here) maybe even a date-winner. We are already smiling.
