Olfactory psychology is only in a small part question of smell, it cannot be aprehended without the knowledge of the natural essences. The wider this knowledge, the deeper will be your understanding of olfactory psychology.
This knowledge includes botanic, aromatherapy and psychoaromatherapy, phytotherapy, chemistry, pheromonal processes and natural perfumery. This is the base on which to develope the knowledge of essential oils.
Based on a language of olfactory archetypes, olfactory psychology aplies this knowledge to human psychea using mostly the schemes of olfactory memories.
