Villainous Smelly V/S Heroic Smiley...

"Scent is a powerful memory trigger." 

The sense of smell is the one with powerful might. For just like our other sensory organs, an interaction is powerful enough to leave an impression. 

An everlasting imprint always correlates. It forms an association between people, places, and situations for the brain to recollect and embrace or to be reminded of and avoid. 

The building which you call a house, that which is made a home by the presence of family members is also a bouquet of aromas. Or probably not?

For, as much as we would like to fantasize in the make-believe world of mushy fragrances, life at home in the real world is a bed of roses, albeit with thorns, and a map of pleasant scents, albeit with.

The house, which you call home is actually a battleground for mortal combat between Villainous Smelly and Heroic Smiley.

Each house has these latent elements battling to persist as an uninvited guest in the house.

Smelly comes armed with weaponry which aims to wreak havoc on the scales which maintain the olfactory balance inside the house, so to say.

Smiley comes armed with ammunition which aims to tackle and neutralize the damage caused to our delicate nostrils by these Smelly warriors.

The #SmellyToSmiley transformation inside the house takes place when the people living inside the house employ heroic Smiley tactics to outwit villainous Smelly spoilt brats.
