Based on the fact that the sense of smell is both one of the most developed and most untapped one, British artist and designer Kate McLean created a series of maps focusing on olfactory perception. Her "Smellmaps" aim at identifying and describing the typical odors that characterize best cities around the world.

For instance, Amsterdam is dominated by the smells of canal water, warm waffles and coffee. In Edinburgh, local breweries give the city its odor of malt. These maps are based on the artist's own observations and consist of various colour circles, each one representing a specific smell. The New York Times
