For the study, researchers analyzed the sleep of 15 female volunteers for a total of 30 nights.

While the women were asleep, the researchers would put their noses through smells.

The smells would spark dreams for the women, some good and some bad.

The smells ranged from rotten eggs, to sweet smelling roses.

The women, once they woke up, reported on their dreams.

They found that women who received the sweet smells of roses had better dreams than those who smelled rotten eggs.

The study was shown at the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery Foundation’s Annual Meeting in Chicago.
