Our Tips & Tricks
Our smell capsules are guaranteed for a minimum of 2 years but can last for much longer if you close them after each use with the right cap. Keep this game far from a heat source. Somebody that is not used to using their nose may find that olfactory recognition can be hard. However, we guarantee you that with a little training, it will become very easy!
Our first tip is to try and categorise the smell: is it sugary? salty? fruity? flowery? Woody? etc.
Our second tip is to try and remember what that smell makes you think of. Actually, our sense of smell is the one that is the most linked to our memory! A simple smell can make you think of a season (strawberries in summer), a person (grandma’s lemon smell), a favourite dish (curry), a yogurt flavour, a cream fragrance, a place, etc. Making this link will automatically help to put a name on the smell you are trying to recognise.
Also, smells are like colours. For example, there are as many shades of green as there are apple smells! A green apple does not exactly smell like a red apple, that smells differently from apple sauce or apple pie! The smells presented in our games are therefore one of the many available versions of smells that you can find around you.
Recognising smells will become a true Memory game, using all your souvenirs as a reference palette.
