Masik Collegiate Fragrances debuts this year with fragrances for Penn State and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The company has plans in the works for fragrances covering the Universities of Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee, as well as Auburn University and Louisiana State University. In case you were wondering:
Creating the "signature scents" is more scientific than you may think - Of the five senses, only our sense of smell is linked directly to the brain’s limbic system or emotional control center. Because of this link, a particular scent or fragrance can evoke memories and emotions before we are even consciously aware of them. This connection between scent and emotion is what enables Masik’s perfumers to link a school’s essence and spirit to fragrance compositions.
