The Korean drama " The Girl Who Sees Smells" was a hit in these months. The female lead in the dram has a special ability to see "smells" from her one eye because of a car accident. The director of the drama uses different colors, symbols to represent different smells. So, even the unique gifts are not open, the girl can also know what is inside the box or who is the present giver by seeing the smell. The fresh idea adds lots of interesting plots in the drama. The ability of seeing smells is equal to know everything on earth. Actually, though we are normal, we can see smells sometimes.
We all can see smells
Most of the time, we don't need to get close to some stuff. We can picture what smells the stuffs like from the photo. In the drama "The Girl Who Sees Smells", the girl recognize smells according to her experiences. If she isn't familiar with the stuffs like medicine, she only knows the symbols are new and special. Thus, even we are ordinary, we can "see" smells like the girl in the drama from our daily experiences such as taking a sip of coffee, tasting the caramel, being caught in a rain on tar road.
Smells recall one's memory.
Exactly speaking, smells have a direct connection with the brain. When you smell something familiar, you will have emotional reaction, and the reaction will affect the real movement. For example, if you like chocolate, you will be happy when you smell chocolate, then you may go to the store for buying chocolate, or eat chocolate in front of you.
Knowing the importance of smells let some companies produce unique gifts which have custom smells. For example, Morinaga soft milk caramel candy custom creative USB drives for their important clients. Besides the package of the product, the USB drive is including the smell of Morinaga soft milk caramel candy. When clients receive creative USB drives, not only do they feel useful of the gifts, but remember products for a long time. With different life experiences, company may promote more buying desire. It's a kind of special marketing way.

Memories like you had candies with your friend, you were choked by onion while first time cooking, or you received unique fragrant gifts from your lover. The way we see smells is precious.
