Smells for Space is a speculative design project exploring how astronauts and other spacefarers might use scent as a means of staying connected to people and places on Earth.”

This project show how scent is important for people life, especially for those who will live far from Earth.

My aim was to create three scents of Earth to bring to a zero-gravity environment to explore the emotional impact of space travel. I knew from the beginning that I wanted the smells to range from universal to personal. Some of the scent options included: the ocean, forest, dirt, a leather armchair, a freshly baked cookie, my childhood home, and the smell of a loved one.
