Olfaction is the strongest human sense. Smells are highly emotive and cause up to 75% of daily emotions. We take15 breaths and exhalations per minute, which is near 20,000 times a day. More than 1,000 human DNA genes are closely linked with a sense of smell and subconscious perception of the world. Scents and smells evoke emotions, images and associations, create the mood, influence decision-making and define behavior. They immediately influence the subconscious mind, bypassing rational thinking. No doubt, it is a powerful tool of influencing people.
