NEW YORK (AP) An ulta perfume that can bring back your life can make you feel like you’re still alive, according to an Australian study.
The study by a team of psychologists at the University of New South Wales says ulta perfumes, which are sold by Sephora, offer a way to re-live the euphoric feeling of being alive in a way that could help people who struggle with anxiety, depression and other mood disorders.
“Ulta perfumery is like having a dream again,” lead author, Dr. Stephen Stirling, said.
“You get this feeling of fullness, this euphoria and then the fullness of being able to experience all of the emotions again.”
Dr. Stirling says ultanas are a good fit for those who struggle to feel happy and happy again.
“There’s a certain sort of person who suffers from depression, and they’re often in a state of self-medication,” he said.
“And so they may not be able to fully express their feelings to the outside world, and it can be difficult for them to get out of bed and go to the supermarket.”
But Dr. Stirl says the idea that you can be revived from a state in which you’ve lost the capacity to feel euphoria is a very real one.
“The way that I interpret this is that they’re a therapeutic tool for people who have lost the ability to experience a state, a state where you’ve gone from being happy to a state like this, and that’s a very good thing,” he added.
Dr. Stephen S. Stunning of the University’s School of Psychology says the study shows that ulta products can help those with anxiety and depression recover.
“I think we can all say that we would like to be able, in some way, to have a full, full, complete, happy life again,” Dr. Slinging said.
But the study also found that some ulta lovers felt disappointed in the results.
“It’s a little bit of a mixed message in terms of what the ulta people said,” said Dr. J. Scott Jones, an assistant professor at the university’s Department of Psychology.
Dr Jones says it’s difficult to tease out the exact reasons why some people feel disappointed with the results of the study.
“We don’t know if they’re simply a little disappointed by the data or they’re really disappointed with what they see as the quality of the data,” he explained.
“Because of that, it’s really hard to say whether there’s a causal relationship between the experience of feeling happy and feeling a sense of well-being, and the amount of satisfaction people get from their experiences.”
Dr Jones suggests that there’s one possible explanation for why some of the people who felt disappointed were able to recover: They were more likely to be satisfied with the quality and quantity of their experiences with ulta.
“If you look at the studies that I know of where people who feel depressed recover from ulta, they recover in a lot of ways from having experienced that type of euphoria,” Dr Jones said.
