The Smell Lab was a monthly meeting space open for everybody who is interested in experimenting with the sense of smell. Being a space for propelling olfactory experimentation, participants (beginners or experts) were invited to share their knowledge and connect with other smell enthusiasts.
Smell Lab was active at Spektrum until March 2017: following a trademark registry in early 2017 its activities no longer fall within the scope and aims of our community program.
A selection of what the Smell Lab has been up to in their period with Spektrum:
