Have you ever been going about your business when all of a sudden you stop in place because you are struck by a certain smell that brings back all of these memories? This has happened to me a few times and it’s not surprising because scents are a very powerful trigger. My favorite memories triggered by scents are always ones that bring me back to certain family vacations.
For our family, we tend to go to two different places for our vacations – Walt Disney World and Gulf Shores. A few months ago, my husband and I were outside in the evening. It was a cool night, the breeze shifted a different way and all of a sudden I was overcome with memories of the beach. Something about the breeze combined with a smell in the air brought on these memories and I didn’t want to let go – I was ready to book another trip to the beach!
The same has happened to us with memories of Walt Disney World. My husband and I will be overcome with a scent in the air – whether it’s rain coming or the strong smell of popcorn making us think of Main Street and we will be transported right back to the Happiest Place on Earth.
I love that certain scents can transport you to another place and time with memories! Arm & Hammer Laundry knows that and for the first time, they have launched a collection with scents inspired by nature in partnership with the National Park Foundation.
The newest Arm & Hammer Clean Scentsations line gives your clothes the pristine freshness of the great outdoors. All three options include Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to help power out dirt and odors – at a fraction of the cost. Find out more about the products here!
