Resource description

Fragrance and perfume connect with our most basic and primitive window onthe world – our sense of smell. Animals use their sense of smell to find food,sense danger and mate. So, too, do human beings. Mothers and their babiesbond through smell. Smell triggers memories buried long in our unconscious,probably because our sense of smell is linked directly to the limbic system, theoldest part of the brain, which is the seat of emotion and memory. Throughoutthe ages in Western civilization, fragrance has been used to communicatespirituality, passion, and both masculinity and femininity.
