More commonly known as an exotic note favoured by perfumers, neroli is also valued by aromatherapists for its calming and relaxing properties. It has been touted to alleviate insomnia, anxiety and stress-related depression. And on another front, fans of botanical-based beauty know it for its ability to care for the skin by fading scars and spots, as well as to maintain the balance of oil and moisture in the skin. TRY: Basil & Neroli Cologne, $225, Jo Malone


With hidden talents beyond being a base note in masculine colognes, cedarwood oil is also useful in treating acne and blemishes as it is a natural bacteria inhibitor. In aromatherapy, it is said to provide emotional grounding as its scent alleviates anxiety and eases stress. Tip: add a few drops of its oil into a warm bath before bedtime to get a deeper, restful sleep. TRY: Cedarwood Candle, $105, Burberry Beauty
