ABSTRACT
The article reports that scent can elicit a more powerful emotional response than any other sensation. It is because of the fact that the olfactory receptors are connected to the limbic system, the most primitive part of the brain that's thought to be the seat of emotion. Though individual associations with certain scents vary, some aromas incite the same moods in all of us. Lavender is relaxing, almond and vanilla ease anxiety and research shows orange boosts feelings of calmness and happiness.
