Discontinued Women’s Fragrances Can Bring Back Memories: The Mom Smell and More
An appropriate quote for discontinued women's fragrances:
"When nothing else subsists from the past [but a fragrance], after the people are dead, after the things are broken and scattered the smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, like souls bearing resiliently, on tiny and almost impalpable drops of their essence, the immense edifice of memory" -Marcel Proust (From 'The Remembrance of Things Past')
Distant Memories, Recalled From an Odor?
Think back in your head about the various smells you can remember from your lifetime. Your mother's perfume might be one of them. Gasoline oil or engine fuel may be another if you had one of those dads that worked out in the garage. Perhaps the aroma of fresh cut grass clippings remind you of the summer where you started your own business, or the scent of citrus leaves reminds you of the trees you climbed up and hid in as a child.
Whether the smells of your childhood were foul ones (the smell of rotting garbage) or pleasant (the smell of roses from the gardens in your neighborhoods), there are still mental and behavioral responses to those fragrances that are worth considering. They get a reaction; when you smell something you either cringe and cover your mouth if it is foul, smile and breathe in deeply if it is pleasant, or go about your business if it is faint and non-offensive or neutral.
Searching for Discontinued Women’s Fragrances on the Web
These days, the internet has created yet another avenue for those out there who are on the prowl for discontinued fragrances. There are so many reasons why people may seek out discontinued fragrances on the web, but the main reasons are sentimental reasons. Perhaps they have had that fragrance in the past and really liked the way it mixed with their own body chemistries; perhaps their mother had it as a child and it brings back the infamous 'mom smell' that people seem to be so intently in search of. Perhaps they had this fragrance before and got a lot of compliments on it or they have just heard a lot about it and want to give it a try. For whatever reason, there are so many searches for discontinued fragrances put in each and every day, as people are constantly in search of one or another.
Many people might wonder why some people take the importance of certain fragrances, discontinued and otherwise, to heart. There are so many reasons why a person may search high and low for a certain women's perfume or cologne, but scientifically speaking there is a great deal of evidence pointing to the fact that smell is the single most important of the five senses. This is not just for humans, but animals as well; even dogs strongly rely on scents to get so many things accomplished, including finding food and deciding whether or not it is fit for them, finding their way home, and even finding a suitable mate for themselves.
While human beings don't necessarily depend on smells for reproduction, seventy five percent of the taste that they come into contact with hinges on a functional and sensitive sense of smell. Pinch your nose and eat a potato or an onion and see if they taste quite the same to you; chances are that they likely do not.
