Words to Consider When Communicating About Scent

Updated: May 12

(excerpt from Nose Dive: A Book for the Curious Seeking Creative Potential Through Their Noses by Catherine Haley Epstein)


Language builds legitimacy, and often it seduces and it can be a major distraction. There is a trend of thought police, whether a well-meaning group of scholars storming Wikipedia to shape some territory on ideas, or charlatans who, by enthusiasticallysharing their personal thoughts, may misrepresent olfactory facts. I recommend making your own scent neologisms as so many are now doing.


Submissions are welcome, please contact us if you have a word or two.
