Importance of Scents

Published by N-Essentials Team on 14th Apr 2020

Have you ever encountered a particular scent that triggers the recollection of an event? Perhaps, it’s the alluring scent of roses, the smoky fragrance of a campfire, or the delightful scent of ocean air?

Even if you haven’t encountered a triggering scent in quite some time, but their impression is so enduring that when reencountered, they seem to always evoke such warm memories.

Today, scents have been widely used in countless industries. They are incorporated in many products such as perfumes, soaps, detergent powders, and candles. For instance, fruity or citrusy scents such as lime and lemon essential oil can be added to laundry recipes while earthy scents like sandalwood can be added to candles to create a rich, entrancing aroma.

The perfume industry is probably the greatest patron of scents as they continue to create fragrances that are not only pleasing but also distinctive and even provocative.

Perfumes connote elegance and distinction. They help to mask less-than-pleasing body odours and instead leave us with a scent to remember. Since antiquity, perfumes have become a symbol of power due to its almost magical ability to attract and captivate other people’s attention.

Scents improve self-confidence

The use of scents has become one of the greatest tools in keeping us going round in circles in the sense that we repeatedly use them as part of our daily routine without giving much thought to our connectedness to them.

One of the most treasured essential oil that supports a fresh-smelling physique is the bergamot essential oil. It is recognised as the main ingredient in many luxurious perfumes for its refreshing aroma that helps keep you going throughout the day.
