Scents Appeal

February 1, 2013 | By Nadine Kam

Find the perfect vacation perfume.

Spring is in the air, and so are the fresh fragrances of citrus, botanicals and spices. Scents travel directly to the hippocampus—a part of the brain involved in the formation of memories—adding an extra dimension to romance and recollection of roads traveled. Long after photos have faded or disappeared from memory cards, the fragrance you wore on your trip to the isles will help you reminisce. So choose wisely.
