Scent Memory Kit : An Innovative Product For Re-Awakening Memories

Our award-winning Smell and Memory Kits have been carefully developed to help those living with Alzheimer's and dementia to re-connect with memories from everyday life and with their loved ones and caregivers.

Smell is such an important part of us as human beings. In the deepest, most ancient part of our brains, lies our olfactory memory, where scent connections have been stored throughout our lives, often without us being aware that they are there until they are recalled.

The Second Edition of our Scent Dementia Memory Kit is designed to engage your aging loved ones in the recall of memories through the sense of smell. The kit contains six essential smells of
Apple, Lilac, Vanilla, Lavender, Pine, and Popcorn. Also included in the kit are paper blotter strips for applying the smells and Clue Cards with hints that you can offer during the 'guessing game.' It is important to note that none of these smells includes alcohol and they are safe when coming into contact with the skin!

"Smelling Sessions"

Smelling sessions in care facilities were tested by the developer of our kits. She found that Scent Memory Kits can provide a vehicle for communication. Unexpectedly, some of the residents started conversing with each other, sharing memories of receiving and experiencing the joys of chocolate, while others started discussing how they loved lilacs and had a lilac bush in their gardens.


Over the past year, she visited numerous Adult Day Care and Senior Citizen facilities and had hundreds of senior citizens attending the smelling sessions to ensure the best possible design for the Smell and Memory Kits. Smell samples were carefully developed and selected to help connect those who use them with memories from everyday life. The smells are meant to be administered by adults who want to engage in the "guessing" game with their parents, friends, or patients. Clue cards and smelling strips are included within this kit to help guide in the administration of the smells. The smells are not "perfumes" and are not meant to be worn, but are safe when coming in contact with the skin.

By using our Smell and Memory Kit, we hope everyone can experience a uniquely special engagement between you and the ones you care for!

Instructional Information

A GUIDE FOR USAGE:
  • Select a smell of your choice to start.
  • Roll the first smell onto the pointed tip of the paper blotter strip.
  • Give your loved one or group audience the scented paper blotter strip.
  • Ask them to smell and describe what they smell.
  • Ask them to vocalize any adjective or descriptor that comes to the top of their mind when they smell.
  • Give them clues to help them guess (using clue cards as a tool, or verbalize your own).
  • If no descriptor comes to mind, reveal what the smell is, and see if you can open a discussion. In a group setting, it may take one or two tries to get everyone to open up.
  • Repeat with remaining scents.
