The Science Behind Scents

Autumns arrival invites a symphony of fragrances that instantly transport us to a place of nostalgia and warmth. But what is it about these scents that captivate our senses and evoke cherished memories of the season? Let’s delve into the science of scent and the role it plays in making autumn so appealing.

The brisk, crisp, slightly sharp scent we so fondly associate with autumn is, in reality, the aroma of nature’s cycle in motion. It’s the smell of leaves, trees, and plants gently descending into decay and renewal. While this may sound melancholic, it’s in the memories we attach to this transformation that makes the season pleasurable. It’s the memories of crunching through a carpet of fallen leaves as a child, the warmth of family gatherings around an apple pie, or the aroma of a freshly brewed pumpkin spiced latte. 

Therefore, understanding the science behind scents can help you create the ideal ambiance year-round! With this being said, let’s take a look at some of our favourites scents for fall.
