Certain smells and scents can literally impact my mood. The part of our brain that processes smell just so happens to also stores our memories. The scent of sugar cookies reminds me of my Nannie. Woodsy earthy scents are sensual and remind me of a certain ex. Just like a fond memory can change your mood, an aroma can also change the atmosphere. The scent that lingers in my home is so important to me. More than just a way of eliminating odor, home fragrance is also a means of self-expression.
