Ear and Nose
In the Ear + Nose event, participants will experience music paired with specific scents. Participants will enter the space and experience an immersive environment of sound and aroma. Scent (and sound) elicit strong memories and associations, and participants may write a brief response or memory to the experience. In exchange, they will get a smell strip as a takeaway. Participants may linger as long as they like or stay briefly.
