Smelly Maps: discovering Amscentdam* 

French perfumer Edmond Roudnitska once wrote: 'Le Parfum est le 8ème art' (Fragrance is the 8th art). At Something Smelly we are on the fence whether every perfume is a piece of olfactory art. Intrigue and ambiguity took hold of us at Chandler Burr's curation of the Art of scent in 2012. It entailed the exposition of mass marketed fragrances as examples of olfactory art. 

It was the same year that the Twitterverse put Kate McLean on our smelly map. On April 10th 2014, I was excited to finally meet Kate in person and enjoy the exclusive debut reveal of the end result, the exhibition ‘Smellmap: Amsterdam’. Below you’ll find my smelly notes and impressions of this event. These include a review of the methods used and the conversations with the attendees.

Check out our first blog post  

Introduction to the science of smell
The fundament of this platform is the science of smell. So what better subject for our first blog post than a science of smell 101? This exciting field covers a broad span of many different interests and subjects. From physiology to economics, from medical disabilities to quantum physics.

Let us take you on a journey up the nose through a short overview of some of the most influential scientific works. Within this blog we hope to expand on each one in due time. Our goal is to offer a comprehensible glossary of this breathtakingly fascinating sense.

Fun Facts

*Smelling is the first sense we use the moment we're born.
*Our olfactory epithelium is pigmented just like the rest of our skin.
*The intensity of the odors we smell depends on the temperature and humidity of the inhaled air.
*Some odors can also cause tactile sensations like cold, warmth and sting. This is because the olfactory epithelium contains pain receptors (also called trigeminal nerve fibers).
*Odor receptors are renewed each 4 to 8 weeks, something that is very rare among mature neurons.
