The Secret Science of Scent: How Fragrances Evoke Emotions
When it comes to scented candles, the fragrance is everything. But have you ever wondered why certain fragrances are able to trigger such strong emotional responses? At Sakoon, we understand the science behind why certain fragrances evoke certain emotions, and we use this knowledge to carefully craft our all-natural coconut soy candles with unique and captivating fragrances that are designed to provide a specific emotional experience.
One of the key factors that influences how we respond to a fragrance is our past experiences and memories. Our brains are incredibly good at associating smells with past events and experiences, and this can influence how we feel when we encounter a particular fragrance. For example, the rich and spicy fragrance of our Kashmiri Chai candle might evoke feelings of comfort and nostalgia because it reminds us of happy times spent with loved ones. This phenomenon has been studied extensively, and research has shown that certain smells can trigger vivid and detailed memories (Source: Herz, R. S. (2002). The scent of memory: The use of odors in memory research. Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 9(1), 14-24).
Another factor that plays a role in how we respond to different fragrances is the emotional response that the fragrance itself is designed to evoke. Certain fragrances are composed of specific combinations of scents that are known to have particular emotional effects. For example, the calming and soothing scents of lavender and eucalyptus in our De-Stress candle are designed to help you relax and unwind after a long day.
Additionally, our individual differences and preferences can also influence how we respond to different fragrances. We all have unique experiences, memories, and emotional responses to different scents, and this can affect how we perceive and respond to a particular fragrance. That's why Sakoon offers a wide range of fragrances to choose from, including our popular Begum candle with its rich and exotic blend of Turkish rose, jasmine, and saffron.
