I think I was born with a nose for scents.
I smell things before anyone else notices.
Smells are addictive, sensual, erotic, pungent, playful, healing, and can bring back beautiful memories in an instant.
The chemistry of scent is complex and intertwined to the depths of our being.
There’s a line in my favorite movie, “Something’s Gotta Give” where Keanu Reeves slowly turns to Diane Keaton’s ear, and whispers, “I knew you were going to smell good.” And she responds, “It’s just soap.” And that’s chemistry for you.
I love the smell of going into a bakery first thing in the morning when you can smell the fresh breads being baked.
The scent of lemon verbena soap caressing your body, giving you a feeling of empowerment and sunny energy to start your day.
Scents can change your outlook in an instant. From freshly mowed grass, warm toasty fires or passing a garbage truck on the street. It changes your outlook and changes your direction.
What atmosphere are you going to create through a scent- something playful, seductive, or fresh? Maybe even all three…
