I feel lucky to have had the chance to attend a very thought-provoking all-day scent symposium at Parson's yesterday ( Headspace: On Scent as Design ). Today in the Post, of all places, there is a recap of research done by one of the most impressive presenters, Dr. Leslie Vosshall. She did a 5-year study on the New York scent experience. I love that there is a universality to smells but that each person's interpretation and experience with them is completely unique. But what really blows me away is the potential for our noses to bring so much more to our everyday experiences if we just paid a little more attention to them.
