Give someone the right fragrance and they can take on the world! The power of scent can sometimes be underestimated, but aromatherapy has been used for centuries. Some scents can have a great effect on your mood, which is why you should never leave the house without a spritz of your favourite perfume or aftershave.

Your sense of smell is very closely linked to the part of the brain that is responsible for emotion and memory. With that in mind, here are some of the best mood-boosting scents from Valley of Roses and what fragrances you can find them in. 



Citrus scents are incredibly popular in the world of fragrance, and they lend themselves to both men's and ladies scents. Citrus scents can be very motivating- giving you an instant energy kick.

Some citrus smells can be de-stressing, such as the clean, fresh scent of lemon. You will usually find most citrus fragrances are men’s aftershaves but there are some deliciously citrus ladies fragrances too!
