Aromachology: a perfumed well-being

Aromachology binds our memories to our daily well-being thanks to the use of perfumes and essences. Through our olfaction, all the smells we get in touch are registered and memorized in a special area of our mind which is called olfactory memory.

When we get in touch with a particular scent, the receptors of our brain set up to get hold of those memories we believed had got lost. Perfumes technically have an effect on our limbic system by stimulating the production of substances like adrenalin and endorphin: that’s the way they influence our emotions.


If we think about the magic memories of our childhood olfactory memory begins to work in our nose since the earliest years of our lives. As a matter of fact, it is no coincidence that perfumes tickle exactly this type of positive emotions and create an immediate sensation of well-being.

Thanks to the evocative power of a fragrance, we can affirm that aromachology is an essential issue in the world of perfumes and, at the same time, the ideal tool to realize a natural benefit for us at once.
