I read somewhere that these smells affect the same centers of the brain as the smells of healthy sweets, as a result they seem so tasty and alluring) But why this happens, alas, it was not explained there. But it would be interesting to listen - since childhood I have been going crazy from the smell of corrector, scotch tape, asphalt, earth, paint, nail polish and other things ...
I just don't like these smells at all, especially gasoline, but I wildly love the smell of household chemicals. Not just the smell of powders and detergents (although the smell of powder is also sometimes quite), but a kind of mixture of smells.
In the department of the hypermarket with washing powders and detergents, heaven is for me. Walk and enjoy.
And now I also use tide in capsules and my bed linen smells so delicious after washing ... Although people scold him for the "persistent, badly washed off powder smell".
The reason is often a lack of iron in the body. This leads to tissue iron deficiency, when the synthesis of many enzymes is disrupted. And this, in turn, leads to sideropenic syndrome, one of the many manifestations of which is a perversion of smell and taste.
