The article discusses a study focusing on how scent can help multisensory impaired children and be applied to products of the future. The study states that for children with profound learning and communication difficulties, smell can help them identify people, places and objects. It also showed that the sense of smell has a direct link to memory and emotions. The study shows that the sense of smell underpins much of humans social interaction and awareness of others.
