Have you ever noticed that the homes of your friends and family smell like beautifully fragrant candles, while some smell, well, not so fresh? This has probably led you to wonder what your place smells like to others.Have you ever found yourself thinking ‘why can’t I smell my own home?’.
Well, it turns out your brain is to blame for you becoming used to the smells around you! 🧠 Let’s give you a quick rundown of how your sense of smell works.
How Do I Find Out How My Home Smells To My Guests?
Environmental odours travel through your nose to odour receptors located above and behind your nostrils. These receptors then send this signal to the same part of your brain that is responsible for determining threats and deciding what to do with them. This process is how you smell things
If the smell is pleasant and the brain decides there is no threat, these receptors will calm down. Your brain will decide that the smell needs no attention, and over time, your ability to detect that odour diminishes. In short, you become so used to the smell that you lose the ability to accurately smell it.
As time goes by, the odour of your home will seem to remain unchanged…until you return from a week away. Have you ever returned to your home after being away on holiday to find you can now detect the scent of your home? This is exactly what your home smells like to others. If this smell has you worried about what others will think when they visit your place, don't worry, because we've got some good news for you.
