Here are my two top suggestions on Fragrance Tips for Improving Your Sense of Smell
- GO GROCERY SHOPPING: Yes, those mundane chores can be turned into a fun game. When you are grocery shopping, head over to the fruits & vegetable area and start smelling. Pick up a banana, a plum, an apple, or a grapefruit and take a big whiff. I mean, really think about what you are smelling.
Moreover, by doing this, you are building your “muscle memory“. We spend too much time in our day running around and not slowing down to really pay attention to the smells around us. Next time you are about to eat something, whether a full meal or a small snack – remember to stop and smell first before having your first bite.
- STOP AND SMELL THE FLOWERS LITERALLY
