This resource is 1 of 11 downloadable resources created for Odeuropa's Olfactory Storytelling Toolkit: a 'How-To' Guide for Working with Smells in Museums and Heritage Institutions. These resources are meant to be used for your own olfactory event. 

Guidelines for Evaluating Heritage Scent Creations (OST Resource 10) is a resource that informs the process of carrying out the evaluation of heritage scent creations made for the purpose of olfactory storytelling. We propose three different evaluation schemes: an isolated evaluation, a contextualised evaluation, and a peer review evaluation.
