Morven Caesar, 21, from Canada, went viral on TikTok after sharing a classic conditioning trick to ensure your ex never forgets you

“Let’s talk about classical conditioning of your romantic partner,” she began.
“While intentionally conditioning your romantic partner to associate blowing out birthday candles with you is incredibly toxic, there is a much more common way of doing it.”
The psychology student explained that when starting a new relationship, you should choose a signature scent and stick with it.
“Your body wash, your candles, your perfume should all have a cohesive smell,” she said. “And then when the relationship ends, you can change your scent…”
“But for your ex-partner, that scent will be ruined, and whenever they smell it on another girl, if they ever just smell it, they’ll think of you.”
Morven warned that this ploy was “definitely manipulative and toxic.”
“Entering a relationship and thinking about how you’ll come out on top when the relationship ends may not be the healthiest thing to do,” she said, “but it’s also very effective.”
“Have you ever done this or think it happened to you!?” she asked in the caption.

Many people noticed that their exes associated them with a certain scent, even though that wasn’t their intention.
“I did this by accident and only realized it when I saw my ex and he said my car smelled just like me/my perfume.” “I never noticed, he remembered,” one person replied.
“My ex tells me whenever he smells Bath & Body’s Dark Kiss or Coco Chanel he remembers me,” another added.
“I can never smell Sweet Pea during bath and body treatments without thinking about her,” another shared.
One TikTok user also noted that the trick can backfire and make you think about your ex.
“Okay, but I do that because I only like certain smells… but then when I smell old scents, I get MEMORIES TOO,” the person explained.
