Smells

There is something inherently comforting in the smell of fresh brewed coffee and fresh baked bread.

It’s homey, it’s yummy, and it’s satisfying.

Why are smells so powerful, though? It’s actually a psychological and biological thing, and it’s really quite fascinating.

There are four sensors that help us see, but there are over 1,000 that help us smell. It’s the oldest sense we have, and smells can unlock memories we never would have reached in our minds otherwise.

So the smell of coffee and bread early in the morning? A reminder of those lazy weekends when your parents still paid all the bills and would tuck you in at night.

Ah, to be young and carefree again.

(And to not have to bake your own bread.)
