More recently, as I have found my stress levels rising and my mind and soul have demanded more “me” time than ever before, I have found myself reaching for my most-coveted smellies almost daily. I find that not only do they help bring some delight to otherwise mundane tasks (like scrubbing your entire body), but the scents themselves also help to evoke a feeling of calm and clarity.
And yes, there is some science behind why great-smelling beauty products make us feel good (it’s all to do with aromatherapy and hormones), but frankly, right now, I don’t think it matters. If one divinely scented product is enough to put a smile on your face and help you get through the day, then I say go for it. Luckily, though, to save any mishaps (or irritation-induced rashes), there are a whole bunch of products that smell great and prove good for your skin too.
So as someone who has tried and tested just about every smelly out there, trust me when I say the following edit contains the greatest-smelling beauty products that money can buy.
