Scent and the Brain

Scent is one of the strongest senses in the human body and can provoke a series of memories and emotions that affect our state of being.

Have you ever experienced a smell that instantly reminds you of a person, place, or thing? Maybe it’s a perfume that triggers the thought of someone, or the smell of freshly baked cookies that transports you home to baking with grandma. The emotional function of the brain activates in response to smells that elicit memories. Therefore, If these are positive memories they could prompt feelings of love, warmth, safety, and happiness. 

Because feelings often affect human responses, we can then identify that scents have the ability to affect our behaviors. Scent in certain spaces can have a powerful impact on basic cognitive processes and physical functioning. In the workplace, scent can have effects on mood, productivity, and stress levels. Hence why this element is highly impactful in working environments.
