Whenever I Need an Immediate Mood Boost, I Reach for This Cult-Loved Fragrance

I’ve been a fan of clean beauty brand Fresh for quite some time. Its formulas are truly some of the best, and they always leave my skin looking and feeling brighter and highly nourished. The brand’s Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Toner ($45) never fails to enrich my complexion with hydration and the sweet, faint scent of rose. Naturally, my undying love for this rose-scented gem led me to scope out the brand’s collection of richly aromatic fragrances next. And boy, I was not disappointed.

Each is crafted to be light, uplifting, and true to the brand’s refreshing ethos. There are some earthier scents, some floral, and some fruity—there’s truly something for everyone. To get the lowdown on the best mood-lifting fragrances Fresh has to offer, I went straight to the source. I tapped the brand for a few details on its best sellers with a bit of backstory from the brand’s co-founder Lev Glazman. Read on below for which ones to add to your collection.

Key notes: Mandarin, Italian lemon, grapefruit, bergamot, lotus flower, transparent jasmine, rhubarb, musk, peach. “This best-selling fragrance features notes of energizing citrus and clean florals to awaken your mind and refresh your senses. A medley of intoxicating citruses is paired with notes of bergamot, lotus flower, and rhubarb. “I’m a great lover of citruses and always playing with the many variations that exist. With this scent, I wanted to pair pink grapefruit with a medley of other citruses—lemon, bergamot, tangerines, oranges—that has depth but still maintains the classic, clean essence of a citrus that is so completely addictive.” — Lev Glazman, co-founder of Fresh
