What's That Smell Lurking in your Bedroom?
It seems that wherever I look, I’m hearing about my sense of smell and how powerful and monumentally underrated it is. If something can be so effective and it’s easily accessible to me, it seems to me that I really ought to take advantage of it.
There are some people who have anonsmia, which means they have zero sense of smell. Of course, there are degrees of that, like: hyposomia, dysomia and phantasomia. Mamma mia! (Did you break out singing ABBA? Ha! I very much want to see the movie version with the talented Amanda Seyfried. Speaking of, she is featured as a Vanities Girl in Vanity Fair this month. I love that feature they have. If you are unfamiliar with it, it’s a page in every issue where they feature an up-and-coming actresses in pin-up poses with retro makeup and attire.)
Something I’m very into these days is learning about the limbic system, which, in my ultra-unscientific description I will tell you basically is a way that your sense of smell can affect your mood. So, I believe that finding a potently posh and positive smell is very good for my well-being. Perfumes and scented lotions are nice, and I do love them. But I also like to indulge in scents that will fill a room. I never just dress to impress,I also…okay, nothing rhymes and sounds with that — but you know what I mean. I like to use nice smells in my place. Honestly, who doesn’t?
Reed diffusers smell great, and they come in beautiful displays.
