Benefits of wearing perfumes – #MondayMeTime

I can’t actually remember when my love affair with perfumes began but I’m guessing it was watching my Mum spraying herself with beautiful fragrances when I was a child. Now that I am the adult I have a whole shelf full of perfumes which I wear according to my mood or occasion.

Have you ever stopped to think about how wearing perfume benefits you? It’s something which I consider as I have definitely noticed that some perfumes really have the ability to lift my mood. A few years ago Simon and I even had a go at making our own fragrances on a trip to France.

You smell nice

Nobody likes to think that they smell unpleasant and for some people body odour can be a constant battle so wearing a perfume helps to keep you smelling nice all day long.

Confidence booster

If I am heading out for the day I never feel like I’m ‘ready’ until I have given myself a spritz of perfume. Just as I know that popping on some makeup and nice clothes will make me feel good, knowing that I smell nice adds to my confidence.

Evokes memories

This one is a biggie for me, I am a ‘memories’ kind of person and will often associate smells with places and points in time. I have perfumes which remind me of amazing holidays, or treasured relatives and of special occasions.

When the Beans were babies I attended an aromatherapy class and have quite the collection of oils as a result. I have used them to treat headaches, colds, sore throats, Albie’s tummy troubles and when the children haven’t been able to sleep. Aromatherapy has many health and well-being benefits.

Physical attraction/aphrodisiac

Since perfumes are rich in pheromones (a chemical substance produced and released by animals and mammals which affects the behaviour of others) they can act like a natural aphrodisiac attracting others to you.

Enhance your mood

Taking into account all of the above, perfumes have a great ability of enhancing your mood. If you are feeling confidant and reminiscing on happy memories, your mood will instantly be lifted. It’s not just that though, fragrances can project your mood no matter how you are feeling. I definitely have different perfumes for different days dependant upon how I feel. My favourite is getting that brand new bottle of perfume and opening the box to reveal the beautiful bottle hidden within, it always raises a smile and a sense of excitement.

What’s your favourite fragrance and why?

    I’m super fussy with perfumes, at the moment there is only one I’ll wear – Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede – but I absolutely ADORE it. I used to save perfume for when I went out, but now I believe they’re supposed to be worn and enjoyed, and I spray some on every single day. If I forget, I don’t feel right!!!! xx
