How scents diffused in the air or on the skin can influence our behavior.
Smell: How does it work?
Until now, science claimed that human olfaction could detect at least 10,000 different odors. Recent scientific studies have proven that, in reality, we can detect up to 1,000 billion. Our nasal cavity has millions of olfactory neurons and brings together 400 receptors. The same odor can be detected by different olfactory receptors. For an odor to be perceived by the olfactory mucosa, the scent must be odorous and sufficiently concentrated so that its chemical nature can make the cilia of the olfactory bulb react. It has been shown that the sense of smell can also work by association. The memory of an event or the name of a tasty dish can stimulate it. The quality and variety of our receptors are defined by our genetic heritage. This sense remains developing throughout the span of a life. Some receptors may remain dormant until activated by several stimulations.
The incomparable power of perfumes
Since Antiquity, essential oils and perfumes have been used for the power of their powers (sensuality, seduction, self-affirmation, evocation, appeasement, etc.), both on the body and the mind. The memory of a scent alone can be very lasting. How is it possible ? Unlike the sense of touch and sight, smell transmits olfactory information directly to our subconscious. It settles in our “emotional brain” or “limbic system”, and influences our psyche and our behavior. This is how a perfume can provoke physiological reactions (stimulating, energizing, aphrodisiac, relaxing, etc.).
