The Art of smell

What is smell?


The sense of smell is one of our five senses, so it allows us to perceive the world around us.

It is the most primal (animal) of our senses, that is why over the centuries we have suppressed it. However, the long anosmias caused by Covid reminded us of its importance on our psycho-emotional balance and its role in the perception of flavors.



How does our sense of smell work?


To activate our sense of smell, we need, at least, 3 elements : a scent, a nose and a brain. A scent is a combination of several aromatic molecules. These molecules move within the nasal cavity and go straight to our olfactory hairs. These olfactory hairs are sensory receptors. They work as keys and locks, catching the associated molecule and locking it. Then, they are able to transmit the sensory information to the brain. The information first passes through our limbic system which is the center of our emotions and memories.

What are the different roles of our sense of smell?


  • A Protective Role: It allows us to detect possible dangers (e.g. smoke).

  • A Role in our Relationship to others: We all have an unconsciously perceptible odor signature that plays an essential role in our relationships with others.

  • Management of our emotions: the sense of smell plays an important role in emotional management (e.g. comforting scents - Proust's madeleine).

  • Uniqueness: Each of us has faulty or missing olfactory hairs responsible for incomplete olfactory images. This peculiarity linked to the functioning of the sense of smell makes us unique and makes smelling subjective.

Do you need to have a gift to have a good sense of smell?

No! There is no such thing as"perfect nose".

With patience and practice anyone can develop their sense of smell to be able to differentiate and identify thousands of smells.

So it's up to you!
