Little Red Riding Hood and the Smell of Fear

“What great big nose you have, grandma?”
“All the better to smell you with, my dear.”

This evening we will research the smells in fairytales. Often meant to frighten children, one of the genre's staple smells is fear. We have invited our speakers to delve into this scent as we discover other ways smells tell a story. Can smell enhance the experience of a fairytale? And did you know amusement parks and cinemas use smells to influence guests? We will look at this topic through the lens of Little Red Riding Hood. We will smell of the flowers that caused Riding Hood to go off her trail and sense the Wolf's fur.
