Focus on the fragrance ~ Aromatiques is a highly visual aromatherapy primer, appealing not only to the sense of smell, but also to sight, touch, and the imagination.
My ScentMemory goes back to our family visit to Susie's house in LosAngeles, CA, as a child. Immediately falling in love with her vintage perfume bottles and the lovely aroma emitted from the bottles were complex to a child's nose ~ but I adored the citrusy flavor similar to the naval oranges hanging from the backyard tree, slightly floral scents of plumeria, lavender, and jasmine blended with grassy herbal aromas. And, one that stands alone the fresh linen from clothes dried on the clothesline activates my ScentMemory.
The word “perfume” derives from the Latin “per fumum” (through smoke). This is because the Ancient Egyptians burnt perfumed resins as offerings to their gods. People would try and attract each other with the use of scent even before taking an interest in their appearance. They would use flowers and herbs, and eventually balms that would intensify with heat. BY FRAGRANCE FOUNDATION "HISTORY OF FRAGRANCE"

What do you notice when you first walk into your mom's home for the holidays ~ especially Thanksgiving. From the time you first smell it as a young child and every time thereafter these aromas, when smelled will increase the neuronal activity in the limbic and hippocampus, regions of your brain. These scents have strong connections to emotional memory.
"Women have a more finely developed sense of smell than men in just about every study performed. It is thought to be associated with a more highly developed prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex is linked to bonding with a newborn to discerning potential mates. We are attracted by some and repelled by others. Think of preferences to smell as a fingerprint. Each individual has a specific preference what I refer to as ScentMemory." by SMKelley
