Why does Perfume trigger such Powerful Memories?

Our sense of smell can take us back in time stirring forgotten emotions, why does perfume trigger such powerful memories?.

We each have scents that trigger something in our emotions and memories, no matter what the fragrance is, scents and memory are powerfully linked.

Certain smells can serve as strong reminders of past experience, much more so than any other sensory signal, such as sights or sounds.

There are more than one area of the brain that is used to analyses scents, and the olfactory regions do not only serve for smelling, but are also used, if we experience emotions and when we are memorizing events. The olfactory bulb is closely connected to the amygdala and hippocampus regions of the brain that handle memory and emotion.

So it is not really surprising that we link certain smells and perfumes with particular memories from our past. We can all recall a moment in time when the smell of freshly cut grass or the faintest hint of a favourite Perfume, brought us back to a time and place in our past in the bat of an eyelid.
