A Pretty Potent Secret Weapon…

Ladies, please confirm this for me…we all have our secret weapons, right? When we really want to make a good impression, nail a presentation, or just have a kickass day, we all have that one item in our arsenal that we use to get the job done. It might be a certain lipstick, a lucky pair of earrings, or that one jacket that seems to never fail you. Well there’s a universal trick that you can also add to your artillery, one that I can personally testify for. It’s the power of perfume! It can be used to enhance your confidence and mood as well as help to ensure you’re perceived positively by those around you.

Aside from this convincing reason to splurge on perfume, there are neurological underpinnings as to why certain scents can hold such sentimental importance to us. We’ve all had the experience of encountering a specific scent and being catapulted into the past. This is because smells are analyzed by the olfactory bulb of the brain, which is closely connected to the amygdala and hippocampus – brain regions highly involved in memory and emotion. So let’s make this a memorable year, shall we? If you’re looking for some knew perfumes to mark your 2019, you’re in luck! For the past few years, I’ve been sampling numerous perfumes and have concluded a few absolute favorites!

1. Versace Bright Crystal
Bright Crystal is a perfume that’s been a staple for me for years! It’s a deliciously light floral blend with notes of iced accord, yuzu, pomegranate, peony, magnolia, and lotus flower…aka it smells incredible!
2. Philosophy Pure Grace

Simple, clean, and understated. This fragrance is my go to when I want to feel refreshed! It’s a universal scent that’s perfect for you if you don’t like your perfume to be "too loud”. I’ve also noticed that it doesn’t wear off too quickly, a true sign of quality!

3. Clinique Happy
Happy is Clinique’s best-selling women’s fragrance and I can see – I mean smell -why! Wearing it is genuinely a mood booster! A mainly floral fragrance with a sublime hint of citrus, you can’t go wrong with this one!

4. Chloé Eau de Parfum
This is the signature scent of one of my best friends, so maybe I’m a bit biased, but I think it smells utterly delightful! A powdery floral scent with notes of peony, rose, honey, and cedarwood, this classic perfume is bound to be a hit!

5. Burberry Brit Rhythm
Last but not least, we have the ferociously fresh Burberry Brit! I always have a hard time rationing out this fragrance because it’s so tempting to wear every single day. With a base of ambery woods, driftwood, and musk, this scent will have you taking deep breaths all day long!
