The Heritage Scent Design Brief (OST Resource 6) is a form that assists cultural heritage professionals, historians, and researchers through the process of making a scent for the use of olfactory storytelling. It outlines all the information necessary for a scent designer/perfumer to make a smell interpretation intended for the use of olfactory storytelling. This brief is part one of a two-part scent development process.
