It's interesting how certain smells can evoke seemingly random memories from your past, and how you are able to associate these different scents to events of your life. amirite?

That's because the part of your brain that controls sense of smell is located next to the hippocampus (memory), so scent is actually one of the strongest memory triggers. Learned it in ap psych. :)

Dude, I was just walkin around, taking a stroll down Joking Lane, turned left, walked up some stairs, across a bridge, through a forest, and arrived at You're Taking This Too Seriously Avenue.

Actually happened. Google it.

e.g. The day before starting high school, I had just got a new stick of deodorant (Phoenix, to be exact). I smelled that same scent in the store today and it instantly reminded me of the first week of high school, and sort of gave me a feeling of adventure and experiencing new chapters of your life, etc.
