We would like to help you harness the power of scents to your advantage, you could feel more comfortable in a variety of situations, starting from the home. 

Our sense of smell is about 10,000 times more sensitive than any of our other senses, and as such play a big part in how we think and feel. But why is that, exactly? 

The Smell Report has found that, "our olfactory receptors are directly connected to the limbic system, the most ancient and primitive part of the brain, which is thought to be the seat of emotion. Smell sensations are relayed to the cortex, where ‘cognitive’ recognition occurs, only after the deepest parts of our brains have been stimulated. Thus, by the time we correctly name a particular scent as, for example, ‘vanilla’, the scent has already activated the limbic system, triggering more deep-seated emotional responses.” Essentially, scents trigger reactions in our head, which then lead to an emotional response.

Having the best air freshener to alter home fragrance is one of a number of ways to boost performance, but do note that experience of scents are a very individual experience; smell is the most powerful conjuror of memories, and could create a pleasant or unpleasant feeling, depending on the person who picks up the scent.
