Safe Learning

As we encourage to keep on researching and learning together, we took measurements to keep our workshops, lectures and open tours safe for groups. 


Safe learning in the Aroma Lab -


There is a maximum capacity of 10 participants for each workshop. The space will be adjusted to the amount of participants, to make sure that it is possible to keep at least 1,5 meter distance. The teachers will pay attention that windows are open for ventilation, and that participants keep distance. They will wear face-masks/shields and latex gloves. Participants will be asked to do the same.


The maximum amount of people that are allowed on site is 30 (including kids, without staff) . We make sure that 1,5 distance can be maintained at all times. Do you want to know how we arrange the space exactly? Check our Corona Floor plan for each space here

Follow from home
We are now also live-streaming our Odorama lectures via Instagram live. The smell experience that is common to this lecture will not get lost as we are sending out sample-kits with flavours and smells before the start of the lecture. With this package the lecture can be fully experienced from home.

Open Tours

We allow a maximum of 3 persons per tour. If the group is bigger, we will divide the group over several tour-guides. Our guides wear a face-mask/shield. There is a sanitation station at all indoor spaces of the tour. 1.5 meter distance will be respected at all times and participants are reminded of this regularly. We ask participants to wear a face-mask.

Safe Gathering

We have adjusted the maximum capacity and adjusted the arrangement of each space to current Covid-19 regulations. Our unique venues can still be used to organise a corona-safe gathering with a maximum of 30 visitors. At the moment, we are not aloud to provide catering. (Except for funerals) 


For each space we made a corona-map that shows the maximum amount of individuals that can fit into the space depending on the specific event set up. You can check out the maximum capacity per space and setup here

We offer the opportunity to bid your deceased farewell one last time at our unique location. As the government made exceptions for funerals, and our venue is spacious enough, we will be able to receive up to 100 visitors. If wished, we do also provide a plant-based catering.
