Before we go any further, know that it’s a scientific fact that smells do have an effect on our physical and psychological functions. For example, a specific smell can trigger a particular memory.
One of the best smells in the world is the smell of freshly baked cookies or pastries, as well as a freshly brewed cup of coffee. These smells kindle within us a sense of pleasantness.
Pleasant Smells Can Improve Your Interaction With People
There was a study conducted by Nicolas Guéguen in a shopping mall. He asked five young men to approach young women to ask for their numbers. He instructed the men to approach the ladies in specific areas of the mall – the first area being near pastry shops, bakeries and cafes, and the other area, near stores with no particular scent, like clothing stores.
In total, around 400 women were approached. Can you guess what the result is? Those who approached women in the area with pleasant smells got significantly better results.
