Pleasant scents and how does that work?

  • 2 min read

That one smell can make you very happy, because smells are inextricably linked to our emotions. That's because smell is your most dominant and unique sense. It is relatively easy to describe how something feels or looks like. We all think about the same thing on a warm summer day or on a green couch. But a scent experience is very personal.

How does that work?

Your sense of smell is directly connected to the parts of your brain where your emotions and memories are formed. The emotions you feel the moment you smell something for the first time are therefore forever inextricably linked with that smell.

Because the impression that a scent leaves behind is so deep, scents can therefore influence our emotions and perception. So you can also influence how you feel at home or at work with the help of various nice scents. Scent historian Caro Verbeek explains: 'If you have good memories of a certain scent, for example from your childhood, reproducing that scent can make you more productive, or give you a more homely feeling'.

Collective happy scents

Smell and the experience are therefore very personal, but there are smells that evoke a positive emotion for many people. Like the smell of clean laundry, lavender and lilies of the valley.

What scent does what to you?

The scent of mandarin gives a feeling of happiness that is often associated with a carefree childhood. This subtle scent is less strong than orange and helps you a bit in the right direction to see the bright side of life.

Jasmine provides a sense of self-confidence and euphoria. If you feel lethargic and indifferent, this scent can loosen you up a bit. This scent is therefore also very suitable for meditation.

Bergamot is known as a comforting and calming fragrance. Use this scent when you want to open yourself up again for a little fun and cheerfulness.
