One of my favorite smells is the smell of ironing starch. Smell, as I understand it, is a powerful thing and is a physical sense that is closely related to emotion. The smell of starch always reminds me of my childhood. We’d all get our clothes ironed out in the morning for a wedding, a party, or some other important event. But I don’t just like the memories associated with starch, I genuine love the smell, I just don’t know if that is due to the strong emotions attached to it. Is the smell the same for me as it is for others; does another person experience the olfactory sensation completely differently than me? Someone’s probably done a study on this or something.
