Odorama: Icons of Smell Science

Seeing is believing is empiricism’s credo. But what if we told you that what we see is guided by what we smell? Our experience of the world is heavily formed by the interactive play between our senses. So if you want to manipulate people’s awareness, you should bomb them with aromas! For this Odorama we invited renowned icons of olfactory science prof. dr. Ep Köster and prof. dr. Charles Spence and designer of smelly instinct triggers Leanne Wijnsma, who will explain all about the impact of scents on our consciousness.
