Our olfactory system gives us subtle and reliable information about our environment.

It can warn us about an impending danger, but also about what someone really radiates : « we sense/ scent danger », « we can’t stand the sight/ smell of someone ».

It helps the survival of plants and animal species through pheromones.

Thanks to it,our ancestors knew what was edible, which sexual partner was good for them, and how to find their way around. Our olfactory system is a direct channel of information between our inside and outside worlds. Structure and functioning of the olfactory system : Limbic system of the brain Olfactory bulb Nasal cavity Aromatic substances Olfactory neurons.
