Abstract

The current study examined the potential effect of the scent peppermint on a person’s memory recall such that (1) peppermint was predicted to enhance memory recall and participants exposed to the scent would perform better than those who were not and (2) the scent peppermint would have a greater effect on women than it did on men. Male and female participants were randomly assigned to one of two conditions, scent or no scent, where they were then asked to complete a short survey and two memory tasks. Data will be analyzed by using a 2 x 2 Analysis. The obtained findings and their implications and future directions will be discussed.
