Do you have any scent memories right off hand?
I do, I know that my grandmothers house always smelt of cinnamon and apples. I loved it. I always think of her when I smell those scents. She recently moved and the new house doesn’t smell like the one we grew up visiting, but I still remember it exactly.
Our sense of smell is really an interesting thing. It’s not just about smelling good but so much of the time there are very real emotional ties to scent.
Did you know that you can create your own scent memories??
I seriously love this! I know so many people with kiddos leaving for college, or families with a love one deployed. Can you imagine how soothing it would be to create a scent memory for them and then be able to send them a care package with the smell of home?LOVE!
Or a kiddo going to camp for the first time? Warm a scent in their room for a bit before they leave…then wash their blanket in our coordinating laundry line for the smell of home as they drift off to sleep! Or grandmas overnight? Send them with a buddy with a scent pak that smells like home!
I’ve also read that this can help for studying and testing. If you were to warm a certain scent while studying and then recreate that while testing it would help to jog your memory. One of the ways you could do that was with a sample of the scent or by wearing that scent from our coordinating layers line.
