The Sniff Map is a visual representation of the way smells affect humans. It can be used for historical research or to reconstruct personal smell memories. Smell maps are not an exact science, as the smells people perceive may vary over time and from location to location. In order to create a map, you must first gather data on smells in the area you’re interested in. Once you have the information, you can then decide which chemicals to use to create the map.
The Europeans’ fascination with scents led them to colonise new lands. The scents of the Orient and Africa enticed them to expand their empires. The Dutch, for example, opened grocery stores with exotic foods from Southeast Asia and Suriname. The word ‘toko’, which means ‘bazaar,’ comes from the Malay language, and the phenomenon entered Dutch culture from the East Indies during the early twentieth century.
Microencapsulation technology has also been used for many years to delay the release of ingredient in products, such as packaged baking mixes and pharmaceuticals. While the scratch-and-sniff has fallen out of popular culture, the benefits of using this technology for scented products are numerous. In addition to enhancing people’s awareness of smell, microencapsulation technology has also been used to develop scents that are more potent.
The Sniff Map has received international attention. A variety of media outlets have written about it, including the New Scientist, Washington Post, Telegraph, and Wired. The research team has a website and is active on Twitter. They have also released a research paper. The team is currently working on further development of the Sniff Map. There are currently a few ways to customize the map. You can make it easier for others to use it.
