Scent expert Sissel Tolaas has been working at the intersection of smell and language since 1990. Over the years she has collected 6 730 smells from around the world. Using these smells, Tolaas aims to train the nose to go beyond emotion and relate to smell in a rational way. Here she speaks about various projects she has undertaken from making cheese from human bacteria to capturing the scent of fear. All Tolaas’ projects have a focus on education and seek to decontextualise smells in order to transform them into human aesthetical contexts.
