It’s true, we often take our sense of smell for granted and don’t appreciate the unbelievable power it holds. Never underestimate it, take a look at these incredible facts about our nose and how it smells!
Did you know that smell is the first sense to develop? Before we are even born, it is completely functional and therefore starts to play a major role in our early personal development stages.
There are multiple different stages where our sense of smell is heightened. The three main times in our lives where it is most intense is:
It has been scientifically proven that women have a stronger sense of smell than men do and are more capable of identifying specific aromas. This is because the female orbital prefrontal region of the brain is more developed than male.
Due to the 10 million receptors in our noses, we can identify over 1 trillion different smells! As the specific number hasn’t been determined yet, it could be even more than this.
No one’s sense of smell is exactly the same. Each aroma that reaches our noses can be slightly different to how it reaches someone else’s, due to our different genes that determine our body tissue type. Therefore, the scents we enjoy are entirely unique to us!
At Illumens, we have created an extensive range of fragrances that you can enjoy throughout your home. Take a look at our collections today!
