Smells That Make Us Happy

We must not underestimate the power of our nose. It could actually make us happy by what we smell. Read on to find out more about the smells that make us happy.

Smells that Make Us Happy

            It seems certain aromas have the power to stir up strong emotions and even change our mood. A new study of 4000 people in the UK looked at the scents that appeals to us most. (Seen below).

            According to Dr. Pamela Dalton, the link between smell and memory is very strong. “Smell has the power to revive the past and transport us to a happy time or place, or remind us of a special person, evoking feelings of nostalgia and comfort.”

            Here are the top smells that make us happy:

1.    Freshly baked bread

2.    Clean sheets

3.    Freshly mown grass

4.    Fresh flowers

5.    Freshly ground coffee

6.    Fresh air after rainfall

7.    Vanilla

8.    Chocolate

So tell me, do you have something in the list or not mentioned that makes you happy when you smell its scent or aroma? I’m looking forward to your kind responses. J
