SUDDENLY IT SMELLS JUST LIKE THE 1970's

RETRO FRAGRANCES 



How much fun would it be to jump in a time machine and travel back to an era that you love?…Well in a sense (literally), nearly all of us have the ability do just that, by using our noses and memory!

Have you ever experienced that moment, when a sudden odour (be it pleasant, or not) can jolt you straight back to a random but totally lucid memory of a past time – Maybe it’s the smell of doughnuts or candy floss, that takes you back to your first time at the fairground, or does the smell of new cut grass suddenly have you sitting at your old school desk on a sunny afternoon, whilst the playing field is being made ready for sports day?  Either way, for a few seconds at least, we are given the chance to close our eyes and re-live the moment!


The main reason for this, is that our olfactory senses, (smell and taste) are heightened when we are younger and this is when most of our long term memories are formed.  In addition, the region of our brains responsible for processing odours, known as the Olfactory Bulb, is located close to and works in conjunction with the part of our brain that handles memory and emotions.

Apparently, research has also shown that most women have a more developed and heightened sense of smell than men – Maybe this explains my wife’s derision, when I have previously failed to buy her the right perfume : )

Talking of perfumes and odours that can send our minds time hopping…
