The olfactory bulb is where the sense of smell is processed in the brain. It is right next to the hippocampus – where memories are stored. This is why certain smells evoke certain memories.
The smell of fresh cut grass on that warm summer day as you ate a popsicle. The smell of your favorite perfume you wore on that date with that one person you never saw again after that night. The smell of fresh baked cookies from that time when you were a teen baking cookies with your sister around Christmas time.
The smell of you invades my nostrils and almost knocks me to my knees the second I step into the threshold of your apartment.
I just miss you so much.
