As a Beauty Ed­i­tor, I love the im­pact of a bold lip­stick, and the glow­ing, healthy-look­ing re­sults of fake tan. But it’s fra­grance that makes the big­gest, yet often sub­lim­i­nal, im­pact on our mem­o­ries, emo­tions and pas­sions. with scent, you don’t think, you feel. Each time I pass a woman wear­ing YSL Yvresse (for­merly Cham­pagne), I get a pang of fes­tive ex­cite­ment. My mum would al­ways get a new bot­tle for Christ­mas, and the fruity-flo­ral scent still con­jures up the child­like gid­di­ness that comes with the an­tic­i­pa­tion of presents. Equally, a waft of my late nana’s Chanel no.5 can make my eyes prick with tears. Since scent is in­ex­tri­ca­bly linked to our feel­ings, it fol­lows that we can use cer­tain notes to sway emo­tions – our own, and those around us. So meet the scen­tual in­flu­encers that can spritz away stress from your mind, years from your face and inches from your waist­line.
