Scent is a personal thing, with the power to change your mood, take you back in time or remind you of a special person.Some perfumes and fragrances act as aphrodisiacs and have a hypnotising effect on the opposite sex. Below, I list six different scents that have powerful effects on the body and mind.
- Woodsy; pine/oak.
- Vanilla Yoghurt
Men and women have long searched for the fountain of youth, the meaning of life, and the secret of happiness. Well, youth still passes, life still puzzles but the secret of happiness has, it seems, at last been found. It is vanilla yoghurt.Breakfast can’t be so fresh without a canful of thick vanilla yoghurt. Care for a gentle world of indulgence with vanilla yoghurt? I thought so too. The scent makes me famished everytime I open the lid in the morning.
- Can you smell the sweet smokey aroma?
This grilled goat meat was too tantalising of a scent that I even took a picture before devouring it. You feel me?
Who doesn’t like barbecue🤷♂️
- The Story of my Life
The scent that brings about a dejavu everytime I smell it is honey. A few years back I was as unruly as any other teen could be and the next few lines will amaze if not perplex you.One hot afternoon during the post high school days we assembled at Brian’s to play Pes/Fifa in order to kill time before we got a chance to join prominent colleges and or universities. Time was as availably cheap as it is now. So what did we do with it?It happened that Chris and co could not be quenched by the thrilling experience elicited from gaming and loud music. We were 7; 5 boys/men and 2 ladies. The ladies were into weed, making the rest of the crew to agree with their idea.After a long network of seeking out the elusive weed peddlers, the yearned popular drug made it’s way into the room with everyone smoking out the deadly poison into their lungs oblivious of the danger that lay beneath all that stimulating smoke!Moments later, we all started hallucinating and all. As smoke rented the air, we heard hooting from the gate and that’s when it dawned on us that Brian’s folks had arrived from work. Knowing that they worked with the police force only made matters worse.”How on earth could they be so early today,” I tried to gather. The time by my wristwatch was 3 o’clock. We all panicked as the hooting became prominent with each succession. The whole room was stinking with marijuana! Was jail calling for us?We frantically reached for the door to try and run but their presence freezed out every bravado left in our sedated veins. It was when Annie, the housemaid appeared out from her room smelling like a million bucks! She folded from the pungent smell of weed and immediately ran for her honey smelling perfume.Like a predator eyeing for its prey, she squeezed the antidote, instantly drowning the smokey scent. Normalcy was restored making everyone beg for the perfume to completely extinguish the smoke from their clothes.The scent was so warm and sweet that we almost sprayed our foul-smelling mouths. “Oh! The gate. Quick.” Annie ordered. We all ran to open with the sweet honey scent wafting in the air. Albeit Brian’s parents being mad at our delay, they appreciated the ‘good grooming’.As they made their way inside,we let out a sigh of relief having learnt that peppermint can be life savers too in such situations. From that day I owned the Forbidden Games by Killian perfume. However, due to its exorbitant price tag I resulted to cheaper alternatives_you get the point. Phew!
- Sense of smell over every other sense
Since we can’t decode the enormous varieties of scents, this makes the sense of smell inferior to the other senses. Particularly much of our smelling happens under the radar of our consciousness.When it comes to smells, people can be influenced and not realize it.
