Smell & Tell | AromaBox


Wednesday February 20, 2019: 6:30pm to 8:45pm


Westgate Branch: West Side Room


The #AromaBox is an analog scent device that does more than diffuse pleasant scents, it is a tool for cultivating curiosity, collaboration, and building community. The #AromaBox has another benefit which may appeal to educators in the Ann Arbor community: it can be used as a storytelling device with or without technologies like Arduino. This Smell and Tell is a hands-on multi-sensory event. Attendees will select a single ingredient from a menu of essential oils derived from green plants which will then be used to scent their #AromaBox. P.S. You get to take your #AromaBox home!

The Smell and Tell series of art+science programming is led by Michelle Krell Kydd, a trained nose in flavors and fragrance who shares her passion for gastronomy and the perfume arts on Glass Petal Smoke. Smell & Tell builds community through interactions with flavor, fragrance, and storytelling. The unique and popular series celebrates its sixth anniversary year at the Ann Arbor District Library and is ongoing.
