Meet The Mood-Boosting Scents For Summer 2024

Best mood-boosting fragrances | Space NK
Dare we say it, but perhaps summer has officially arrived... for this week at least. Whether the sunshine stays or the rain returns, we highly recommend rethinking your fragrance and considering something fresher and lighter. It’s no secret that scent has the power to not just transport you, but to help boost your mood. Citrus scents are thought to be incredibly uplifting and energising, while lavender is renowned for easing stress and anxiety.

These are just two examples and in a world with endless fragrance notes, there are plenty more that will connect with you on a personal level when you’re in need of some happiness. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite mood-boosting fragrances for this time of year – featuring both classics and new scents. How many have you tried?

Best Mood-Boosting Perfumes For Summer 2024


Floral Street

Sunflower Pop Eau de Parfum, £29.00

With zesty mandarin, bergamot and bellini accord, Floral Street’s Sunflower Pop gives you a dose of uplifting citrus in one quick spritz. The dry down is slightly softer with honey amber supplying some smoothness.



Sun Rae Eau De Parfum, £89.00

This roundup wouldn't be complete without at least one Vyrao scent as the brand focuses on the link between fragrance and mood. This particular perfume was crafted to deliver joy and happiness with a burst of fresh ginger, bergamot, amber and musk, and we're pleased to confirm it delivers.



Jazmin Yucatan, £70.00

If you’re looking for more escapism with your mood-boosting perfume, then we recommend trying D.S. & Durga’s jungle-inspired Jazmin Yucatan. Notes of bergamot, cloves and vetiver together with green vines bring to life the calm, earthiness of the jungle after rainfall perfectly.



Philosykos Eau de Parfum, £153.00

Another of our favourite mood-boosting perfumes includes Diptyque’s much-loved Philosykos Eau de Parfum. Taking you out of the daily grind, this scent transports you to the soulful calmness of the Mediterranean. Inspired by the rolling Greek fig groves, there’s an intoxicating warmth and sweetness to this perfume. Think sun-soaked figs basking in the late afternoon glow – think scent conjures up the fruit, the sun and the earthiness.


Maison Margiela

Replica Coffee Break, £120.00

There is something uplifting about the smell of freshly brewed coffee and this Maison Margiela fragrance delivers your caffeine hit in one spritz. There’s coffee, of course, but it’s expertly blended with milk mousse, vanilla and musk for a smooth, reassuring creaminess.
