Tobacconist Tip #685
We use our sense of smell constantly, always checking the air for pollutants, danger and every other possible stimulus. Our arousal to smell is strongest when we first perceive it. We naturally become desensitized after a few minutes of exposure so we can detect changes in our environment; this process is called Sensory Adaptation. This process is exemplified by the strong smell of tobacco we sense when we enter a retail tobacconist and how that diminishes after a few minutes.
