Have you ever smelled roses, when there definitely wasn’t a rose bush anywhere to be seen?
Or a whiff of cigar smoke, when no one in your home has been known to smoke?
Or your mother’s favorite Avon perfume, when your mother has long since passed away?
The ability to smell the memorable scents of those familiar to you on the Other Side, is an intuitive ability known as Clairailence (clear-smelling).
Scent is one of the earliest triggers of memory and connection, and as such, it’s a very powerful tool for your Loved Ones to use to get your attention. This is because scent - is a very easy thing to remember someone by. When you smell a familiar fragrance, it triggers a memory response connecting you to a person, experience or an event.
If a deceased person was famous for being connected to a certain fragrance , and they could be remembered for it, they may try to re-create this fragrance (while in your presence) in order to be noticed by you.
The most common scents your Loved Ones will use to get in touch with you are:
Favorite Flower Fragrance
Baking and Cooking
Laundry Scent (such as mothballs)
If you smell one of these fragrances, with no known physical source, it is likely attributed to a deceased person that you know personally, as the purpose for using this type of sign to get in touch with you is to trigger your memory of them.
In most cases, when you smell a fragrance from the Other side, the person you think is responsible, is exactly the person who is.
PS - Clairailence is actually a sub-ability, underneath clairsentience. If you are clairailent, you are also clairsentient.
