Your sense of smell is a powerful thing. It can bring back memories, attract or repulse us, or even influence our mood. Olfactory cues can predict rewards by alerting us of palatable food and even a potential mate. Conversely, adverse malodors can be a predictor of punishment or dangers such as food pathogens. Our olfactory system consists of a nose, nostrils, sinus cavity, tissues and the olfactory epithelium, which stores mucous membranes, olfactory glands, neurons and nerves. This system detects odor molecules and transmits information to your brain through sensory transduction.
As individuals, we all have our own scent preferences. What is perceived as top strong, weak, spicy or floral for some is quite the opposite for others. Some love gourmand (food like) scents while others say they unnecessarily stimulate or decrease appetite. Finding pleasant scents can drive positive behavior, create arousal, stimulate appetite, create a sense of well-being, provide respiratory or headache relief or a good night's sleep or relaxation. Let's use the information below to better understand how your personal preferences fit into scented oil olfactive mapping. Knowing this can help you make better decisions as a consumer when picking scented products and can help you correlate similar scents between different brands. We will show the olfactive categories for scented oil refills and corresponding products from Scent Fill and store brand Plugin refill manufacturers. Many manufacturers selections are seasonal or discontinued and are constantly changing.
