RACINE, Wis., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As spring arrives and temperatures rise, the world of scents around us also intensifies, making it the perfect time of year to revitalize your routine with fragrance. According to a Glade® survey1, nearly 90 percent of Americans say scents inspire feelings. Glade® understands the powerful effect fragrance can have on everyday life and is launching the new Glade® Limited Edition Spring Collection inspired by the uplifting feeling of spring.
"The changing seasons can really affect our sense of smell," says Rachel Herz, Ph.D., who has been researching the intersection of smell, emotion, perception, motivated behavior and cognition since 1990 and is the author of The Scent of Desire: Discovering Our Enigmatic Sense of Smell. "Spring and summer are typically the warmest months of the year and, as humidity levels and temperatures rise, more odor molecules are released into the air. As a result, we smell more of what is around us and therefore can experience more emotional scent associations2."
