Perfume As Creativity Booster3 min read
Sometimes even the most creative people get stuck in a rut. Whether you’re struggling to find limelight or working out a new approach to make your vision work, try these quick, aromatic, perfume-involving, quirky strategies to get your creative juices flowing.
1. EMPLOY THE POWER OF BLUE
The groundbreaking study conducted and published by the renowned University of British Columbia suggest that the color blue is best at boosting our ability to step out of cognitive conformity and start thinking creatively.
Juliet Zhu of UBC’s Sauder School of Business, who is author of the study says:
“Through associations with the sky, the ocean and water, most people associate blue with openness, peace and tranquility,” says Zhu, who conducted the research with UBC PhD candidate Ravi Mehta. “The benign cues make people feel safe about being creative and exploratory. Not surprisingly it is people’s favourite colour.”
But just wait a minute Einstein: It looks like you won’t be able to get the wheels turning by simply staring at the blue sky or the serene waters; you need a real cognitive visualization. Which is best achieved through scented visualization, a.k.a. smelling things that you associate with ocean and sky.
It is the scent that brings you to a beach on a beautiful day with the warm sun caressing your skin, not a cloud in the sky nor a care in the world. You feel safe to open the chest drawer of your visions and explore the scariest corners whilst feeling safe.
2. RESERVE THE COUCH FOR THE DAY
If you feel like you’re stuck in the creative department, banging your head and trying to call for new ideas like Native Americans called for the rain won’t help you.
What will really help you is to lie down for a while. Possibly for the day. You need to unwind, relax and clear your thoughts.
Easier said than done, you say. I say try dabbing just a bit of Eau Parfumee Au The Vert by Bvlgari (the ultimate zen perfume) on your wrists and just watch the world go by. Do not watch TV and stay away from the virtual world. Soothing music is allowed. Give it a few hours, and if you don’t believe me that this will have your muse knocking in no time, read this study by the Australian National University!
3. DAYDREAMING IS THE ULTIMATE CREATIVITY WEAPON
It sounds weird, but if this claim is science backed, who are we to argue… Daydreaming is actually good for your creative life. What the researches of University of California, Santa Barbara want you to do is simply lose yourself in the daydreaming process for a few hours.
The key moment is to daydream about how you actually feel when you have removed the creative blockade and nothing is weighing you down.
In this task, your fragrant sidekick can be :Viva La Juicy Noir by Juicy Couture, a perfume that will actually make you believe in wonders!
A modern fairy tale, bursting with charm and mystery. The perfume of enchantment, capturing the forest spirit of wild berries, the allure of caramel, and the sparkle of a floral constellation.
Your creative genie in a bottle!
