Why do we love Pumpkin Spice so much? Smell is the only one of our senses that is transmitted directly to the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.
Whenever we come across certain smells, the amygdala can quickly remind us of a specific time, place, feeling or gut instinct, before we even realize it.
So, the familiarity of pumpkin spice flavors can bring back warm memories of home baking, family time, parties and feasts, as well as other positive links with fall. You smell it, and the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that can recall past associations, springs into action. Basically, this part of the brain, "tells the reward part of your brain [the mesolimbic dopaminergic pathway], this [pumpkin spice treat] is going to be great," just like it was last time.
