Perfumes play an important role in our daytime and nighttime lives.
They have the power to capture our attention, evoke memories, and even affect our mood. But how can they influence our sleep?
The connection between scents and sleep quality
Recent research has shown how sleep is affected by the sense of smell, but not only that. Smell itself is also affected by sleep.
Some fragrances seem to improve the quality of rest, as they promote body relaxation, which is essential for falling asleep quickly and waking up more rested in the morning.
As early as 2009, research conducted in Germany by scientist Boris Stuck of the Mannheim Hospital Polyclinic revealed the clear link between smell and sleep quality.
The experiment featured 2 groups of people: the first had a pleasantly scented bedroom night after night; the other had a bedroom scented with unpleasant odors. In the morning, the researchers asked them to talk about their dreams and emotionally label them as negative or positive. And here, the finding became clear: dreams were described as positive when the individuals slept in a pleasant aroma and negative when, on the other hand, they inhaled more unpleasant odors while sleeping.
Aromatherapy and healthy sleep
By using essential oils, aromatherapy aims to give the body and mind a state of well-being.
Researchers in South Korea have discovered how aromatherapy improves sleep quality and reduces stress and fatigue in adults and older people.

Perfume to wake up with the right energy
While a subtle scent can help us relax, room fragrances stimulate our senses and set us up for the day.
Crisp and familiar scents can act as an energy boost that entices us to get out of bed with enthusiasm and fight morning drowsiness.
