Touch, taste, sight, sound and smell are the five sense of the human body, we use these senses every single moment from the day we were born. Scientifically referred to as olfacoception or olfacception, the sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses out of the four others.

According to an article from the BBC, the human nose relies on at least “1,000 different smell receptors which regenerate throughout your lifetime, and change according to what you are used to smelling,” which is why we can identify many types of smells from our mother’s cooking to a black Sharpie marker and in a recent article in the Daily Mail, Tim Jacob, emeritus professor at the School of Biosciences at Cardiff University, mentions smell is linked to the unconscious part of the brain (the piriform cortex) and factors into our attraction toward another person.
