But how about when the sunshine breaks free as soon as we open our eyes, and instantly we wake up feeling happy, energised and ready for the day ahead? Its that slight change of mood that can be affected by the weather. But, say the weather constantly changes throughout the week, and we want to continue staying the same state of happiness the sun bought us? Then why not look to the scent you choose to wash with? Maybe if you could alter the scent daily to what best fits your mood that would certainly help fire start up your happy place.

Emulsion has launched a line called Alchemical Fragrances and with it comes eight different shower oil scents.
