The ‘Nose of Ann Arbor’ and her discriminating sniffer

May 24, 2016

We meet Michelle Krell Kydd, the “Nose of Ann Arbor.” She’s given a TED talk on the olfactory senses, and runs a Smell-and-Tell with the Ann Arbor District Library.


How often do you think about what you are smelling? Ann Arbor’s Michelle Krell Kydd wants you to think more about that. She is a fragrance expert who runs the “Smell and Tell” series at the Ann Arbor District Library, she is editor of the olfactory-centric blog called Glass Petal Smoke, and has given a TED talk about our mysterious sense of smell.

Current State’s Jamie Paisley talks with Michelle Krell Kydd about how smell can be undervalued, particularly when we use one sense perhaps a little too much.
