Have You Ever Heard of “Nose Blindness?”
Scent is the first thing every visitor notices when they enter your home. If you begin to feel like you are missing out on your favorite scent, you may have adapted to it!
If you leave for a while—like going to work or away for vacation—you’ll notice the smell much more when you return home.
All homes have a particular fragrance, each unique to a combination of many things; such as your diet, pets, furnishings, and even your washing powder!
We all spend plenty of time in our home space, meaning we quickly become used to the odors within—both good and bad.
There are many activities and items that can cause the signature scent of a home to be less than fragrant. It's time to get your space back up to your scenting standards.
Hotel Collection looked into the phenomenon of nose blindness and came up with the ultimate antidote.
Why Does Nose Blindness Occur?
Nose blindness occurs when you become so accustomed to a smell that you’re no longer aware of it. Also known as sensory adaptation, this is when the olfactory system becomes immune to a smell that’s stimulated the brain for an extended period.
The brain is highly alert to each of its senses, especially new smells. This is related to an evolutionary process of self-preservation, like a little alarm in your brain notifying you of an odor that could potentially be dangerous (like gas burning, chemicals, toxic substances, etc.).
Once you’ve experienced an odor for a while, the brain switches off this reaction so you’re no longer aware of it. Basically your brain's way of telling you that you're safe.
The Need for Ambient Home Scenting
