Sense of Smell Day

The Sense of Smell Institute (SOSI) has announced that the 13th annual National Sense of Smell Day will be celebrated on April 29. Since 1994, SOSI has sponsored National Sense of Smell Day, an educational day dedicated to teaching children and adults about the mysteries of the sense of smell and the important role it plays in our lives. This year, 12 museums and science centers in the United States will celebrate by offering largely interactive activities including “Smell IQ” tests, demonstrations of smell technology, “smelly” scavenger hunts and educational videos about the sense of smell and perfumery.
