In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Smell You Later.”
Humans have very strong scent memory. Tell us about a smell that transports you.
Scented Memories can instantly transport thoughts of pleasant happy times. As I sit typing this blog post, I smell the aroma of a toasted cinnamon raisin bagel at The Coffee Plantation.
My memories of a cinnamon raisin bagel before school, a bakery in Bad Kissingen West Germany, spreading butter across a slice of cinnamon raisin bread, flood my mind all because of the aroma of a toasting cinnamon raisin bagel at the Coffee Plantation in Key West Florida. Making use of this moment easily brings memories of good times associated with incredible loving thoughts.
I hope all your scented aroma memories are tied to loving thoughts and memories bringing a smile to your face. If you are ever in the Key West Neighborhood, try the Coffee Plantation’s original house blends organic coffee.
Memories triggered by scent have a stronger emotional connection than those triggered by other human senses.
