how certain scents bring back cherished memories
Smells are unique in their ability to take people right back to a certain time or place, often to an experience in childhood, evoking connections and a range of moods. How? Well, it could be because childhood is full of smells, tastes, and experiences that are completely brand new, each one making a lasting impression.
There are certain smells that just flood the mind with memories. During the fall and holidays, baking-inspired aromas tend to be most enticing, bringing about a sense of cozy comfort. The warm scent of vanilla is known for its ability to bring about feelings of happiness and relaxation and lessen feelings of negative emotions. The scent of peppermint boosts brain power and concentration, which also means it’s an expert at awakening those fond memories. And when various baking aromas come together to spark a memory of a specific experience, like baking with grandparents or decorating for the holidays, that’s something truly special.
