It can be a struggle to feel calm and relaxed, especially due to everyday stresses and constant rushing around. But it’s during these moments that we to turn to fragrance to help us return to a zen natural state. So, we asked three members of Team Escentual which fragrances they turn to in order to spritz their worries away. Read on to find out their personal favourites…
1. Mugler Alien Goddess
Fragrance Pick: Thierry Mugler Alien Goddess Eau de Parfum
Why Does This Fragrance Make You Feel Relaxed? Alien Goddess was one of the first fragrances that I fell in love with at Escentual – it fuelled my love for solar scents. Each time I wear Alien Goddess, it transports me to a tropical island that’s drenched in sunlight. I’m in a small wooden hut on the water’s edge, sheer white curtains billowing in the ocean breeze – a place that epitomises relaxation to me.
2. GUERLAIN Nettare di Sole
Fragrance Pick: GUERLAIN Aqua Allegoria Nettare di Sole Eau de Toilette
Why Does This Fragrance Make You Feel Relaxed? Nettare di Sole is a honeyed solar masterpiece, and every spritz of its luminous scent makes me feel incredibly relaxed. To me, the fragrance has a sun cream quality that instantly gives me serious holiday vibes (and being on holiday is when I always feel most relaxed as I take things moment by moment.) I love taking Nettare away with me too, so it reminds me of being lathered head to toe sunscreen and reading on the beach – my happy, relaxed place.
3. J Lo Glow
Fragrance Pick: J Lo Glow Eau de Toilette
Why Does This Fragrance Make You Feel Relaxed? Ever since J Lo Glow came out in 2002, it has been a constant in my life. It is one of those fragrances that I always have and I will always have in my collection because, every time I feel stressed or unsure, I spray Glow and it takes me back to relaxed times.
Its familiar aroma helps me to feel at peace everytime I wear it. Glow’s scent always reminds me of a sweet pink bubble bath, which is the most relaxing thing I can think of. So, even though my collection of fragrances has expanded quite a lot since my childhood, J Lo Glow will always have a special place in my collection – and in my heart.
