Activity Ideas:

  • Pass the smelling pot around for each player to smell and at the end, ask people to try and identify the scent. Do they all agree? If not, what do they think the scent is? (try to use strong scented oils or items).
  • Put a few drops of vinegar on the cotton wool. Once identified, ask what it reminds people of (fish and chips, seafood stall) and talk about holidays by the seaside.
  • Try a lavender scent - could be used for talking about a summer garden? - favourite flowers and why? Or lavender polish - did anyone (or their relatives) work in service? Did anyone use this type of wax polish in a tin? What did they use to clean household items?

Our very own Fragrant Memories Kit has all you need to evoke past memories and encourage discussion.

Just put a few drops of the fragrance on the pad and place in the smelling pot.

Three specially selected fragrances and five smelling pots (two for your own items e.g. lemon peel, rose petal etc) all in an attractive hessian storage bag.

Each set has a question prompt card with a set of 6 questions to help get started. Extra ideas are also included - why not add some food/music to add to the atmosphere. With a peppermint fragrance you could add some sticks of rock, sand, bucket and spade and some images of donkey rides.

A particular smell can immediately evoke so much and is a great way to bring about therapeutic open chatting amongst a group.

Please note: Fragrances may change according to the seasons.
