Your olfactory system consists of the parts of your body that react to smell. As you inhale different smells, the molecules from the scent cause a reaction on the limbic system in your brain. This is the part of the brain that controls behavioural and emotional responses to things in your body. This includes; emotion, heart rate, breathing, memory, stress and hormone balance.
