Top 5 perfumes to cheer you up post-holiday

By Claire Milne

We’ve all been there, just back from the beach, sun-bronzed and straight into our everyday life – which, and I’m not going to lie, isn’t the greatest. Wouldn’t we all love to return to paradise and live everyday like it’s our last? Well, with these fragrances, things will look instantly brighter. Here’s why…

ysl_black_opium_nuit_blanchePerfume: Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Nuit Blanche

Post-holiday vibe: The night you’ll never forget

A touch of primal seduction will surely take you back to your city getaway, right? This will transport you to those nights on the town, where you were most likely joined by a bottle of bubbly and, quite possibly, a handsome stranger! It oozes warm notes of vanilla and creamy coffee, so you’ll deffo be reminded of THAT electric holiday romance you just can’t get out of your head. And good holiday memories always put you in a better mood. Fact!

hollisterbothPerfumes: Hollister Wave For Her and For Him

Post-holiday vibe: Soaking up the sun 24/7

This one’s for you, beach lovers. Or should I say, these two? Just one spritz of this will remind you of the time you ran into the sea with your surfboard and majorly loved life. Ah, just the smell of blackberries and starfruit in Hollister Wave For Her and grapefruit and bamboo leaves in Hollister Wave For Him smell of romance, excitement and youth. The light musk notes in both will also keep the memories with you forever – whether you were sunbathing in California or Thailand this summer, and you only have to look at the pastel colours on the bottles to feel the sun beating down on your skin.

Post-holiday vibe: Don’t worry, be happy… and celebrate!

This scent does exactly what the label says – it makes you pop! It’s fun, exciting, and one whiff will make you want to let your hair down and celebrate life (even if you’re not on your amazing summer holiday any more). The electrifying mix of tuberose and sandalwood creates a statement, as this unexpected pairing makes a fun combo that will totally cure your holiday blues… FOREVER.

armanicodeprofumoPerfume: Armani Code Profumo

Post-holiday vibe: Classy night out – a post-holiday must

This is sophistication in a bottle. And it was made especially for the suave man who lives to entice. The notes of heated amber, tonka bean and benzoin will give you a sudden confidence boost, so get ready to mingle and impress. The Armani Code man is classic and handsome – and, yes, girls flock to him. What we’re trying to say is, you’d better get ready for romance wearing this scent. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
