Making Sense of Scents

Sometimes I am amazed by what people will produce, and even more astonished at what people will buy. Missing the smell of books with the advent of ebooks? Problem solved after the jump!

It is often said that the sense of smell is the one most associated with memories. Whether you walk by a bakery and remember those warm weekends at grandma’s house, or a passerby’s perfume reminds you of a friend, smells, good or bad, are waiting around the corner to spark your memories.

Luckily for Lomographers, the scent of analogue is present in all our prints, no spray needed. And if the smell is not what you’re after, the picture is the best reminder!

    The smell of film, right when you open the container or a 120 roll

    I am partial to the smell of the darkroom, but that must be the fumes!
