Perfume is not only essential for smelling and feeling your best for any occasion, but it can play a powerful role in the world of love and attraction as well– and there’s the science to prove it. As Jennifer Stelter, psychologist and CEO of NeuroEssence at the Dementia Connection Institute, stated to TZR, “Olfactory stimuli has a direct impact on a person’s limbic system that houses the amygdala, responsible for generating emotions, and the hippocampus, responsible for forming memories”. In more simplified terms, the way someone smells impacts your feelings towards them and the way you remember them.
