#ShotGirlSummer is a whole mood. It's already got its own theme song ("Levitating") and catchphrase ("vaxxed, waxed, and ready to relax")—all it needs is a signature scent. Enter: Shocks of Love Dance With Me Aromatherapy Spray ($65), which will serve as the perfect perfume to scent all of the good vibes ahead.

Shocks of Love was founded on the idea of turning your regular-old spritz into a full-blown self-care practice. Its full line of "scent rituals" has a functional fragrance to match (and influence) every mood: There's meditative Woo-Woo Me, balancing Sweet On You, relaxing Dream Lover, and vitality-enhancing Tender Loving Care. Dance With Me is the collection's uplifting fragrance and is perfect for those days (and nights) when you need a little extra boost.

The base of the scent is a "green bouquet' of coriander, cypress, and frankincense, which are layered beneath notes of cardamom and grapefruit. Aside from the fact that they smell really, really good together, these scents were chosen for their mood-enhancing properties—which means that sniffing them all together will make it nearly impossible not to want to get up and dance. The aroma is light and not-at-all overpowering, but still strong enough to garner a dozen "you smell so good" compliments whenever you wear it outside of the house. It pairs well with crop tops, fruity cocktails, and casual make-outs with other vaccinated strangers.

As the brand puts it: "Our scents are designed to be embodied rather than simply 'worn.'" Considering research has shown that scent is one of the fastest ways to alter your emotional state (because of how closely the brain and olfactory system are linked), spritzing yourself with the mood-enhancing essential oil Dance With Me scent will have you smelling and feeling ready for a full summer's worth of post-pandemic fun. All you've gotta do is take your hard clothes out of storage and you'll be good to go.
