Memory and smells are very interesting. Sometimes all it takes is one smell of perfume to instantly transport you back to Grandmother’s House, eating Peach Pie on the back porch. Smells so often accompany memories in the strongest way. Freshly cut grass, a new box of crayons, a neighborhood bonfire, it’s amazing what a simple smell can conjure in your mind.
One smell and you’re back in your childhood home, holding your totally awesome lunch box while you’re getting ready to play with your most fun neighbor. These scents can help you experience those best feelings.
