Florence PHILIPPE – Speech and olfactory Therapist – Trainer

Speech therapist and trainer, specializing in olfactory rehabilitation, I use odorants from various families with my patients who have lost their sense of smell or have persistent olfactory distortions following a Covid infection or a head injury (or for other reasons, as the loss of smell did not unfortunately appear with Covid).

I also use odors in my rehabilitation sessions with people for whom I aim to establish functional nasal breathing, with autistic children, or with patients who have eating-related oral issues.

Olfactory therapy is useful and recognized by several studies with patients in neuro-geriatric or neurology settings to stimulate or restore memory, language, and communication.

Aromaster’s scents are quite suitable for this work as they are close enough to reality that patients can make good sensory memory evocations. The goal is to stimulate not only the olfactory receptors but also the brain networks, as olfactory rehabilitation must also be cognitive.

Bad odors (wine faults for oenologists) are useful for working on distorted odors that are very difficult to recover in some patients.

This material complements my “toolbox” in olfactotherapy for even more effective treatments!

Firstly I’d like to mention how luxurious the packaging is, the presentation box really looks the part in our tasting room. The kit has a wide variety of aromas (far more than kits we have used previously) and all being relevant to the whisky making process, whether that be desirable aromas or off-notes. There’s a manual inside which includes the origins of whisky, something that would definitely be useful for new starters in our Visitor Centre. There’s also an aroma wheel which includes information for whiskies, which is useful for understanding the characteristics of other brands. The quality of the aromas themselves is also something that will assist me with my training as the aromas are authentic and strong smelling. Overall, I think the set will help me develop my nosing and tasting techniques further as well as developing my knowledge of the industry. I look forward to using the set as part of my ongoing training.

Sommeliers and oenologists who tested the Aromaster wine aroma kit were delighted. One of them already knew and highly recommended your box to us. The others really appreciated it.
