The Nose Knows
Smelling is pleasurable, without doubt, but can it also be curative? Could sniffing fragrances be a remedy for depression or pain, or even life-prolonging? Aromatic substances have long played a therapeutic and spiritual role in human society, and in modern daily life smells still have an effect on our health, our mood and our emotions.
