Need A Lift? 3 Scents To Get You Through The Last Days Of January

Beauty editor SARAH HALLIWELL says SCENT CAN HELP when it comes to UPLIFTING THE SPIRITS

 

We’re thinking ahead to brighter days, but it can be tricky when the mornings are still so dark and everyone is sick. Scent can help when it comes to uplifting the spirits. We’ve been keeping ESPA‘s Muscle Rescue Balm (€42) on our desk: though it’s intended for applying to aching muscles after exercise, we find the peppermint, eucalyptus and clove oils is a brilliant pep-up in the afternoon; just dab a little on the pulse points and breathe in.

Another fragrance that’s endlessly cheering is Pomelo by Jo Loves, the innovative fragrance brand by perfumer Jo Malone. It’s bright, citrussy and compelling, and has a zesty freshness that tricks your mind into thinking there’s actually sunshine outside. From £70stg; the hand and body gel is £40stg. Happily, the Jo Loves collection will be available from SpaceNK in Grafton Street from March.

Clarins Eau Dynamisante, created back in the 1980s, is one of those old classics it’s easy to forget about. But it was designed as a treatment fragrance, with aromatherapy benefits: it contains lots of plant and herb extracts (white thyme, lemon, rosemary) – spraying it is like taking a shot of wheatgrass. From €42 at counters nationwide.
