You can’t smell your Ambre Blends any more? Fear not.

One minute you smell your Ambre Blends Essence Oil and the next minute you don’t? Are you worried that your oil has lost its scent or that your nose isn’t working? Think that your Ambre Blends Essence doesn’t last very long or isn’t the same as it used to be? Think again.

The truth is that you can lose the ability to smell your Ambre Blends products after a period of time due to olfactory fatigue. We would like to provide you with some information so you understand, scientifically, what is occurring.

What is olfactory fatigue?

Did you know that in an average day, you inhale around 23,000 times? That’s a LOT of scents to be smelling each day! The olfactory receptors in your nostrils pick up these scents and communicate them to your brain. Our brain then tells us what the scent means and if it is safe or unsafe. For example, the smell of smoke from a grill might tell you that someone is having a BBQ. But the smell of smoke from a fire might tell you there is danger.

Our brains have been programmed by nature to tell us when there are new smells or changes in smell, not to tell us when things smell the same as they always have. That’s why when you wear an oil essence, it becomes part of your constant environment and your brain eventually stops registering the scent, pushing it into the background. This is olfactory fatigue. But always remember that people will still ask you what you’re wearing, since their nose will be able to pick up the new smell!

Other factors?

All people perceive scents differently and uniquely. As well, everyone has a different personal scent due to gender, diet, hormones, temperature, lifestyle and even mood. All these factors affect how you and others will perceive your Ambre Blends aroma. Ambre Blends products will smell slightly different on everyone as they become a part of you and enhance your own unique pheromones and scent.

Same as it ever was…

Ambre Blends Essences are made with the exact same formula and to the same precise specifications as the day they were created. We never change it up or accidentally make a “bad batch”. Every oil is mixed under the watchful eye and steady hand of Ambre Blends owner and creator, Ambre Crockett and Steph Harris, who strictly adheres to the same process that has been used for nearly 20 years.

Want to Smell Your Products Again?

We hear it from our long-time customers all the time. “I love the smell of your products even though I can’t smell them on myself anymore. However, people still always ask me what I’m wearing, so I know it’s working!”

With the recent addition of Ahnu to our Essence Oil line, Ambre Blends now has five different scents you can mix and match. We often suggest to our customers to switch up the scent you’re wearing to overcome olfactory fatigue. If you’re a faithful Ambre Essence wearer, try using Ahnu Essence for a little bit and then switch back to Ambre! All of our Oil Essences are made with the Ambre Essence as a base, and they are made to mix, match and layer.
