Sentosphere Le Loto des Odeurs (Follow Your Nose) Game
A simple game which fascinates children and adults in the discovery of our least used, yet most acute, sense; the sense of smell.
Exotic fruits, flowers and daily delicious smells are presented in this olfactory game. The 30 smell capsules of the Loto des Odeurs (Follow your Nose) will help you discover our world through a new sensory dimension!
This game will be full of discoveries that all ages can magically share to enrich their sensory awakening. The game rules are easy and challenging: all you need to do is recognise a smell and associate it with the illustration that represents it. The first player that completes its board, without any mistakes, wins the game!
Tips & Tricks
The smell capsules last for a minimum of 2 years, but can last for much longer if you close them after each use with the right cap. Keep this game far from a heat source.
Somebody that is not used to using their nose may find that olfactory recognition can be hard. However, we guarantee you that with a little training, it will become very easy!
The first tip is to try and categorise the smell: is it sugary? salty? fruity? flowery? Woody? etc.
The second tip is to try and remember what that smell makes you think of. Actually, our sense of smell is the one that is the most linked to our memory! A simple smell can make you think of a season (strawberries in summer), a person (grandma’s lemon smell), a favourite dish (curry), a yogurt flavour, a cream fragrance, a place, etc. Making this link will automatically help to put a name on the smell you are trying to recognise.
Also, smells are like colours. For example, there are as many shades of green as there are apple smells! A green apple does not exactly smell like a red apple, that smells differently from apple sauce or apple pie! The smells presented in our games are therefore one of the many available versions of smells that you can find around you.
Recognising smells will become a true Memory game, using all your souvenirs as a reference palette.
