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.
