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)

Scentmas eve!

Today is the round up of Scentmas and I hope you have thoroughly enjoyed reading all of the blogs; there are too many to link up here so if you are interested in reading any of them, just head over to my blog page and you’ll find them all under the category of “Scentmas”.

I am currently relaxing with an Aromax scent diffuser with the aroma of a scrummy chocolate orange scent.

All that is left for me to say now is I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a superb new year and I will speak to you all in the new year!

Merry Christmas!

Twenty Second day of Scentmas

It’s so close to Christmas now!

We only have two more days left of Scentmas and then it will be Christmas eve!

So today’s day of Scentmas is coffee. The raw, pure smell of a coffee bean is an unmistakable smell. Breathing in a fresh bag of coffee releases an indulgent aroma.

The smell of coffee has recently been produced into being used in sprays and air fresheners, you can even buy a coffee scented car air freshener.

Coffee is definitely on the list for ones of my favourite smells, interestingly I don’t particularly like the taste of coffee, except as a mocha. But the smell is truly irresistible.

Nineteenth day of Scentmas

We are drawing closer and closer to Christmas now which is very exciting! So today is the scent of tea.

The warming, relaxing scent of a hot brew can make anybodies mouth water. Perfect to come home to at the end of the day; pretty much perfect for any time of the day! So much so I have bought one of my friends a box of tea for Christmas just because it will be loved so much and not just for the scent but the taste as well!

Tea is on today’s Scentmas blog because I am currently sitting here with the aroma of tea of which is freshly brewed, what can be more perfect after a long day rushing round! The scent fills my nostrils and can instantly relaxing me; here I am talking about breakfast tea. I am not so sure on Earl Grey, I think it is too much and not something drinkable; but that’s just me. Please let me know your opinions! Want to hear from some Earl Grey lovers as although I don’t drink it myself, I know it has one astonishing aroma!

Eighteenth day of Scentmas

Today’s scent is going to be popcorn.

This is quite unrelated to Christmas scents but I think it has a strong scent with memorable aromas making it hit the Scentmas list!

Popcorn; salt, sweet or toffee or any other more uncommon flavour all hold fabulous aromas and interestingly anyone often relates popcorn to cinemas which further shows just how much scent can trigger memories.

Popcorn personally reminds me of the sweet caramel scent of toffee popcorn and gets my mouth watering instantly!

Would love to hear your thoughts on this!

Look forward to another scent update tomorrow
