Eau de Good Vibes : creating Happy Paul's mood-lifting fragrance blend

In today's fast-paced world, nurturing our mental health has never felt more necessary. Happy Paul's award-winning, mood-lifting Bright Spice fragrance blend started life as a series of sensory journeys looking to promote emotional well-being (or, at the very least, to make you smile a little).


The fragrant mix was crafted with meticulous attention to detail. A master perfumer took the not-so-happy Paul’s less classically trained nostrils on a voyage of discovery. He soon discovered that a fragrance wasn't just about nice smells; it's rooted in science too (not Paul’s strongest subject at school). Scents are known to trigger powerful emotional responses. For instance, a waft of citrus, like bergamot, may work to lift your spirits, whereas rosemary tended to send a little tingle of intrigue down Paul’s left leg. Each isolated aroma stimulates the olfactory system, which is directly linked to the brain's emotional control centre.

For Paul, what resulted was the carefully considered combination

of several key essential oils, each aiming to contribute their own therapeutic benefits to elevate your mood.


The Bright Spice journey starts with top notes of


Bergamot : This bright and zesty note is an instant mood elevator. Its citrusy aroma is known for reducing anxiety and depression, promoting the release of feel-good neurotransmitters.
