“The sense of smell is very much tied to emotion,” says Carla Chalmers, the National Education Manager for Elizabeth Arden. “As you experience your environment, smells can recall emotions of a previous time when you smelled that same scent.” So how do you find your favourite fragrance? Figure out a positive mental association and start from there. Your favourite flower? The smell of freshly cut grass? It’s all a great starting point.
