Linking Smells to your Wedding Day Forever!



The Idea
Whether you know it or not, we try so hard to capture our wedding day for eternity. As one of the most happiest and true days of our lives; we have photo’s and video’s and try to our upmost best to keep hold of those feelings, and keep it as close as we can to our hearts.
Never underestimate the human brain when it comes to doing its job. 

The Science
Scents have the ability to trigger memories through the ‘olfactory bulb’ which is closely associated with the memory and feeling part of the brain. This is sometimes referred to as the ‘emotional brain’.  The olfactory bulb has access to the Amygdala, which processes emotion, and the Hippocampus, which is responsible for associative learning. However these cannot just trigger memories, there must be some type of conditioned responses. i.e. when you first smell a new scent, your brain links this to an event, a person, a thing or even a moment. There is an immediate association between the smell and a memory. Examples of this are the brains link between Chlorine and childhood memories of the swimming pool.

The Forever Bliss
Scents are all around us on our wedding day. There are the flowers, the smell of fresh cake, the three course meal that you could smell from outside the reception hall, the cologne of your groom as well as the body odour of those on the dance floor (no pun intended). If these scents are new to you, your brain will forge a link between them and your wedding day. So why not get a new perfume for yourself. Something that you can wear long after your wedding day and still feel the way you did on that special day.
Whatever scent of perfume or cologne you choose to use, remember that it will fill your needs of happiness and joy. It is something that you will find hard to explain at times but the way you feel inside makes it all so worth it.
