It is said the sense of smell is the strongest sense we have. The sense of smell can bring back the strongest of memories. The way a person smells can live in your memory for your whole lifetime. I have found this to be true. For instance, the smell of sage reminds me of my grandfather. He was always burning sage when he was alive. I relate the smell of sage to him.
My grandfather is not the only person I relate to a scent. My husband smells like sandalwood. Sandalwood is a very masculine scent. Sandalwood is what a man should smell like. It’s a strong earthy scent.
Baby power is another scent that reminds me of someone who I was close to. It reminds of my grandmother. Every time I smell baby powder I cannot help but think of her.
The scents of flowers or perfumes can also bring back strong memories.
Is there a scent that brings back memories for you?
