Did you know there was a Sense of Smell Institute?

Me either! Well today the Institute plays host to activities in museums and science centers across the country educating us about our 5th sense, smell.

Did you know:

Everyone has his or her own unique odor-identity or “smell fingerprint.

No two people smell the same odor the same way. In other words, a rose may smell sweeter to some people than to others.

The average human being is able to recognize approximately 10,000 different odors.

Our sense of taste is greatly influenced by our sense of smell.

A woman’s sense of smell is keener than a man’s.

For the answers and more “smell” facts visit the website of the Sense of Smell Institute.
