There are many kinds of smell in nature, for example, odors, scents, fragrances, perfumes and aroma. If it is a good smell, it is referred to as a fragrance or perfume. If not, it is referred to as something that stinks or a stench. Material that gives a useful smell for human life is called a fragrance. This paper is on how strong good smells affects human life and the body; what kind of function and what effect they have on people; how they have had an influence on the fine arts, etc. These will be discussed from the viewpoint of culture and life.
