The smell of a place says a lot about its properties and intrinsic values. An environment which smells good shows that the space is complete, tidy and well-cleaned. That is why it is so important that the furniture is easy to wash and dry. You can also actively add positive scents – but keep in mind that some people may have allergies. The scent of flowers, freshly baked bread or cinnamon buns sends a message of warmth, consideration and homeliness and creates a positive experience. People's sense of smell often diminishes due to ageing and dementia. There is also a tendency for people to get used to smells that they are exposed to over a long period of time.
