Scent triggers are specific molecule combinations that stimulate your brain to take action through trained conditioning.
Example, the smell of coffee is a trained scent trigger for most adults. Many of us have been conditioned to feel more awake & happier when we smell the certain molecule combinations associated with roasted coffee beans because we anticipate the taste and caffeine jolt that is delivered within minutes of smelling it.
The amazing part of all this though is that most of the benefits happen BEFORE we drink the coffee (which is why numerous studies show just being in a coffee shop makes coffee drinkers happier!)
Scent triggers come in a variety of forms.
The smell of salty ocean air or suntan lotion may remind you of summer vacation (feelings of excitement & fun).
The smell of chocolate chip cookies or fresh washed laundry can make you feel at home (relaxed & calm).
The smell of citrus, sagebrush, or pine trees can remind you of hiking or a running trail you used to frequent (giving you a boost of energy).
To leverage the power of scent triggers, three things are required.
1) Exposure to a unique pleasant scent that is easily identifiable
2) Consistent exposure to that scent while a specific emotion is felt
3) Awareness of the connection with the intent & ability to harness it.
FYI - this is what I teach you in the Science Of Scent Course (a $499 bonus I give you FREE with the purchase of a Mission Fragrance Set).
To put it simply, the right scent at the right time can increase your alertness, memory, accuracy, and mental focus - all of which can help you achieve your goals.
