skiing

What could be better than the fresh, alpine scents of a mountain top?

I recently went on a ski trip to Glenshee and as well as it being beautiful and astonishing it also bought with it the most amazing scents. The coolness of the outside air at such a high altitude was breathtaking.

It’s difficult to describe the scent of snow and high altitude better but it can be described i’m sure…can anyone help me out?

The sense of smell was something which truly enhanced my ski trip it filled my lungs with such freshness and I understand why these ‘alpine’ scents are bottled and sold as air fresheners.

Thank you for reading and take a look at one of my pictures from the ski trip.

Scent task

Hello faithful readers!

Over the next few days, I’m going to set you all a task. I would like you to go out and about in your everyday life and think about these questions.

1) What scents can you recognize? How best do you describe these smells?

2) Do these scents remind you of a specific memory? Why do you think this is?

3) What is your favourite scent? Why? Does it remind you of anything?

Thinking about these questions whilst going through your everyday life will help you to see how much scent has an effect on your life. Below I will give you my answers to the above questions.

1) Today some of the scents I recognized included: My car air freshener, the washing powder on my clothes, the smell of library books and there would have been a lot more which would make this blog continue on forever! The scents were very homely as they are scents I encounter on a daily basis.

2) If I was to encounter these scents in a different setting I would be able to easily relate them back to the primary source my brain tracks back to. For example if I smelt an artificial smell of cut grass, it would remind me of my car airfreshner

3) Finally one of my favourite scents has to be my washing powder as it is distinct and brings me happy and welcoming memories.
