Scented products

I’m sure many of us received a variety of perfumes and after shaves for Christmas as well as other bathroom scented products.

For Christmas I received two perfumes as well as a gorgeous candle. All of which contained unique scents; one floral, one fresh and the candle was fruity and whenever I smell these scents I am transported back to certain memories, but why?

When our receptors in our brain are stimulated, they transmit to our brain. This pathway is connected to the part of our brain which deals with emotions. That’s why our reaction to smell are that we usually either like or dislike a smell. Smells also leave long-lasting impressions and are strongly linked to your memories.(Hyperlink accessed: 14/01/2015)
