Today's Notes & Storytelling: Smelling Session At River House, Greenwich CT
I had 12 seniors in my smelling session this AM at River House in Cos Cob, CT! Some adjectives used when smelling their paper strips: "sweet" "it's nice" "soft" "strong" "clean" "powdery" "vanilla" & "chewing gum". From the session, we talked about smell memories from baking, Christmas, and about how much we all liked ice-cream and chocolate. Storytelling is a big part of smelling sessions, and is an easy way to engage our seniors in conversation. Today, I talked about how rose, jasmine, ylang and iris are picked by hand by farmers for use in perfumery.
