How Fragrance Affects Your Mood

Smell is the strongest of the five senses and can have a direct correlation to mood and energy levels. In other words, your sense of smell is directly linked to emotions, which cause immediate reactions. Pleasant smells are known to evoke happiness and positiveness and even make one feel more attractive. According to the Social Issues Research Centre, “The thought of pleasant fragrances may be enough to make us a bit more cheerful, but the actual smell can have dramatic effects in improving our mood and sense of well-being.” As for unpleasant odors, think the complete opposite.

Whether choosing a body product or a perfume, it’s important to select a fragrance that will affect your mood in the best way possible. Caress Daily Silk Body Wash and Bar, for instance, contain multiple layers of alluring fragrance notes like luscious white peach, radiant pink rose, fresh muguet, sheer orange blossom and delicate geranium, with each playing a key role in the overall delectable scent. 

Pink Rose

Pink rose is a top note that is widely used in fragrances around the world. It is also a smell that has been adored by women for generations. Because of its fresh, powdery, floral scent, it is often categorized as romantic and feminine. And since it’s timeless, it will never go out of style. 

Muguet

Muguet Caress

The French word for lily of the valley, muguet is a delicate flower that boasts a clean, bright, green floral profile. It is also known to help reduce stress and decrease anger, making it a great option that is wearable anytime. 

Orange Blossom

Orange blossom Caress

Orange blossom stems from a bitter orange flower, which is also known as a sour orange. While too tart to be consumed, the bitterness creates a fresh, aromatic and sweet floral scent that’s popular in both men’s and women’s fragrances. It is often used in bath, body and home products, as it’s known for its ability to calm and relax, as well as regenerate skin cells. As a top note in Caress Daily Silk, orange blossom plays a key role in captivating the senses. Whether you’re a citrus fan or not, the delicate fragrance is one that everyone will appreciate.

Geranium 

Geranium Caress

Often used for its rose-like resemblance, geranium is less powdery and more lemony than classic rose. The balancing, positive and uplifting scent is widely used in beauty products because of its endless benefits (think anti-aging, dry skin relief and more). 

The end result of combining all of these amazing notes? A classic scent you can use every day, that’s both modern and timeless.
