SMELL & MEMORIES RESEARCH
The sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more so than any of our other senses. Those with full olfactory function may be able to think of smells that evoke particular memories; the scent of an orchard in blossom conjuring up recollections of a childhood picnic, for example.
Smell can also affect people’s behaviour in other positive ways. The smell of roses for example is known to induce a feeling of relaxation, whereas lemon scents lead to feelings of invigoration and the smell of apple pie or coffee brings a feeling of comfort. In addition, our sense of smell acts as a warning mechanism for fire and hazardous substances. This mechanism is however limited. After exposure to a particular scent over a period of time, you are no longer able to sharply smell or detect it.
SMELL IN DESIGN
In Victoria Henshaw’s book ‘Urban Smellscapes’, she outlines four different methods for designing for smell:
Separatation // Spatial or temporal separation of odours through planned activity or displacement
Deodorisation // Planned removal of odours of dirt or waste
Masking // Overlaying of one odour with another: focus is on hiding or changing the original odour(s)
Scenting // The introduction of an odour for its specific odour qualities or characteristics: focus is on the introduced odour(s)
Good Scent: Old library books
Bad Scent: Strong pungent female perfume
