This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023.

AromAtom, designed by perfumer and scientist Marina Barcenilla, is a fragrant encounter with space. Our primary aim is to demystify science by presenting it as a fun and accessible experience that anybody can participate in, regardless of age, education or background. 

Using our space-scents as a tool to engage the imagination, participants are taken on a journey during which we explore the planets and moons of our Solar System, faraway galaxies and the vastness of the universe with sense of smell as our guide.
