How the Brain Processes Scents

How the Brain Processes Scents

The sense of smell is closely linked to the limbic system, which is then connected to the amygdala - a part of the brain that deals with our memories and emotions.

In addition to this, research suggests that scent can influence behavior without being detected, as it can stimulate emotions and trigger memories. This means that a person's mood or feeling may be influenced by scents even if they don't know it.

The olfactory system is the only sensory system that directly connects to the limbic area, which is responsible for emotions and memories.

Video Games and Emotions

Games can be therapeutic, they help reduce stress and anxiety, and they can increase our social skills by building empathy for others or teach us to think critically about a topic we're interested in.

On the flip side, games can be very emotional especially for truly competitive individuals. Try adding scents to your gaming experience, I know you won't regret it. Arabian Jasmine is our newest scent & it lasts up to 15 weeks (3-4 months)!
