Odorama Aroma Lab task

This will be your guide for preparing Odorama's Scent kits step by step.

With the pandemic taking place, the shift towards online lectures was a major trend. Odorama started introducing Scent sample kits, where you get to enjoy the event from home while smelling the scents and getting the full experience. When restrictions got lighter, Odorama's live events were back in action but while still offering a live stream with Scent kits sent to online participants. For the upcoming event, check with Frank if this will still be done or not.

HOW TO SELECT THE DILUTION OF RAW MATERIALS?

1. Testing part: In order to have a good kit you need to do some tests (raw materials, ingredients..). We want a kit that keeps the smell of all the blotters for the longest time possible.

2. Test two different dilutions (10%EtOH, 50%EtOH or pure..) for 1 week then, open it to compare and chose the best dilution.

 

HOW TO DO THE KIT?

1.Check that all the raw materials are available

2. If you have some raw materials that are sticky or oily, you have to laminate the blotter. To use the machine for lamination: click on pre-heat and once you see a green light, select the speed 8 and slide the sheet.

3. For guidance, check the previous Odorama kit. You need to cut the cases in an A4 size that fits the shipping envelope.
