The fifth sense excites the limbic system playing a major role in altering mood, memory, behavior, and even emotions. Although considered a primitive system, the sense of smell is imprinted in our memory. GBAromatiques Enchanted Orchid is that gentle, sweet aromatic scent reminiscent of a stroll along Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more so than any of our other senses. Those with full olfactory function may be able to think of smells that evoke particular memories; the scent of an orchard in blossom conjuring up recollections of a childhood picnic, for example. This can often happen spontaneously, with a smell acting as a trigger in recalling a long-forgotten event or experience. Marcel Proust, in his ‘Remembrance of all Things Past’, wrote that a bite of a madeleine vividly recalled childhood memories of his aunt giving him the very same cake before going to mass on a Sunday.
