What perfumes make you happy?
Which ones make you sad?
Are there any calming scents for you?
Do you think perfume has the power to change the course of a day through their mood altering properties?
I believe in the powers of perfume to influence me and my mood. This is the resource I use to determine what perfume to wear, if I let my subconcious decide and grab what it compells me to grab I am always fine and happy with my choice.
Warning: Blog related testing of non-mood conforming fragrances can lead to major crankiness. 😉
My happy fragrance is Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne. Its major orange overdose leaves me no choice but to smile.
In a sad or contemplative mood my fragrance of choice is L’Heure Bleue, it takes the edge of and adds a little light and warmth to the blues.
To calm me in situations where I am angry or overwhelmed, I most often reach for incense perfumes, Andy Tauer’s Incense Extreme wrestles successfully even with extremely pressured situations.
And are there perfumes that manage to be infuriating by themselves?
Oh yes, there are such perfumes too. Lately I encountered Delrae Panache, L’Artisan Traversee du Bosphore, By Kilian Back to Black, Serge Lutens Louve. Do you see a pattern here? I shoud stay away from too much sugar, I seem to be a fragrance diabetic. 🙂
I can’t wait to hear about your mood-altering
