Why Scent

Scent, also known as fragrance or aroma, is an important aspect of our sensory experience. It has a powerful effect on our emotions and can evoke memories, trigger moods, and affect our behavior.

Scent is linked
to our sense of taste.

One reason why scent is important is that it is closely linked to our sense of taste.

Our sense of smell is connected to the olfactory bulb in our brain, which is also linked to the area of the brain that processes taste.

This is why our ability to taste food is affected when we have a cold or a blocked nose.

Scent has a direct effect
on our emotions.

Certain scents, such as lavender or chamomile, are known to have a calming effect, while others, such as peppermint or citrus, can be invigorating and energizing.

This is because different scents can activate different areas of the brain and stimulate the release of certain chemicals, such as serotonin or dopamine, which can affect our mood and behavior.

Scent is used in
Branding & Marketing

In addition, scent is often used in marketing and branding to create a specific atmosphere or mood.

For example, the scent of fresh-baked cookies in a bakery can make customers feel welcome and at home, while the scent of a luxury perfume can create a feeling of sophistication and exclusivity.
