The Parfums

Perfumes excite us and touch our hearts! We have always tried to discover the mystery of the sense of smell. Today it is known that the nasal mucosa includes as many as 10 million nerve cells covered by tufts of 6-8 vibrating hairs with many receptors arranged so that the different odor molecules pass through them exactly like the pieces of an infinitesimal puzzle. The nose is the only place in the body where the central nervous system is in direct contact with the outside world. The scented molecules cause chemical reactions on the hairs that stimulate the nerve cells in various parts of the brain without passing the censorship of the cerebral cortex and reach the limbic system, our command center. Pungent and acrid odors are transported into terminals reactive to irritation. Perfumes therefore reach directly to the "heart" and even before we "smell" it the perfume has already had an effect on our unconscious. In the limbic system, olfactory stimuli produce neurochemical substances: enkephalins which calm pain and give a sense of well-being, "happiness", serotonin (calms and relaxes), adrenaline (stimulates and wakes up), endorphins (pain sedatives and stimulants sexual); the limbic system supervises sexuality, sympathy, memories, mood, creativity, balance of the autonomic nervous system. Perfumes stimulate deeper sexuality and pheromones, odorous substances with an effect similar to that of hormones, influence the choice of partner, both among men and animals. Perfumes can cause positive or even negative moods and with memories they are stored in the limbic system. The influence of essential oils on the sense of smell is interesting, as aromatic oils influence emotions and mental states, see the use of incense for religious and ritualistic purposes.

Menstrual cup: complete guide on how it works, how to choose and use it best

A menstrual cup is a small container made of silicone, latex, or medical elastomer that is inserted into the vagina to collect menstrual flow rather than absorb it. It works by creating a vacuum seal inside the vagina, preventing blood from leaking out. Unlike pads or tampons, the menstrual cup can be reused for many years, thus reducing the numerous waste generated by traditional methods.
