Home fragrances that set the mood

Smell is the sense that is most closely tied to our memories. The olfactory cortex, which is responsible for our sense of smell, is embedded deep within the brain’s limbic system. The latter in turn controls our emotions and emotional memories.

That’s why what we smell in the air can affect our moods. Many commercial fragrances are designed for a purpose, from ylang-ylang for relaxation in a spa, to a comforting combination that can lull consumers into a shopping mood in malls.

The Viva Grande air conditioner is designed to diffuse air – and the fragrance it carries – to all parts of the home.

 

 

You can enhance the circulation of any fragrance around your home with the help of an air conditioner like the Electrolux Viva Grande. Designed with oversized louvers that operate via an independent motor, its auto left-right swing motion creates 3D air flow and ensures long-distance air circulation and diffusion throughout the home.

All that’s needed now is a bit of experimentation with your favourite fragrances to access their aromatic benefits in the comfort of your home.
