Do cultural activities have to be centered on sight or sound? Is it possible to have meaningful cultural experiences that focus on smell? The sense of smell has long been disregarded as one of the lower senses. More recently, however, the cultural and social relevance of the sense of smell is increasingly recognized. A growing number of projects show how scent and olfaction are increasingly the focus of cultural studies, art and design practices, as well as research.

The Scent Culture Club is a collective hub for people interested in the sense of smell in culture, business and society. It offers group activities that explore this new relevant and topical theme while meeting new people. The activities examine the cultural significance and potentials of scent in contemporary life through workshops, readings, discussions, and talks with perfumers, researchers, and scholars; as well as cultural productions, urban interventions, and trips in and around the city of Zurich.
