Everyone's in a good mood right now. It's the holidays and that kind of makes up for the chillier days and impending snowfalls. But come January, the winter doldrums usually set in since all we have to look forward to is the mind-numbing cold. Which is when mood-boosting fragrances come in handy.

So what makes a fragrance a mood booster? Any aroma featuring uplifting ingredients qualifies. Think fresh florals, sparkling citrus and even sweet gummies. Yup, you read that last one right. There's actually a perfume that incorporates gummy candy. Yum.

From Kate Moss and Victoria Young's holistic aroma to Louis Vuitton's Pacific Ocean-inspired cologne, these mood-boosting fragrances will give you all the (positive) feels.
