Your fragrance can truly make you happier and more assured. Science has proved it. Scent—more so than music or even photos—has a Proustian power to evoke nostalgia, a state of mind that triggers feelings of optimism and a higher-than-normal level of self-esteem. The key, of course, is to find a fragrance that prompts that positive recall. Research shows that two of the most potent memory-conjuring scents are those of food and flowers.
