When you walk into a room, can it's scent change your mood? Please describe. :)

I think so... a bad scent (like animal scents) can definitely make me feel sick or blah.

Definitely --- strong scents bring on my asthma as well as headaches. And that does not make my mood sunny and cheery!

Cinnamon makes me instantly calm and good feeling. I love walking into a room with a nice cinnamon candle burning especially on a cold dreary day.

I have a very strong sense of smell, so scents do affect me greatly. I usually do not like the smells of grocery stores--especially Wal-Mart. Target is probably my favorite, although Kroger is ok too. I'm probably weird that way. ;)

Good smells put me in a good mood and make me want to stay wherever I am. I like to have pretty scented candles and plug-ins in my home. I'm not big on flowery scents, especially perfumes. I'm more into spicy, woodsy scents. I love cinnamon and pine, especially.

It's funny you should mention that. Big department stores give me a headache & make me very anxious. I cannot shake the idea that all the new merchandise gives off toxic fumes. I have actually panicked, more than likely in an attempt to breathe lightly & ended up hyperventilating. I get what I need in Walmart & K-Mart as quickly as I can! jan
