Claudia De Vos

Olfactory artist | Scent psychologist

After receiving my masters degree at the University of the Arts Utrecht in '89 (HKU) I have been working as an artist. Through the years I have developed an interest in the senses and – more specific – the olfactory sense: scents, odors, aromas.

 

In order to establish a firmer knowledge base concerning the functioning and effects of scents I followed a professional study on naturopathic aromatherapy and the psychology and psychoanalytic ideas of C.G. Jung. My expertise in the years that followed has developed towards scent psychology.

 

Scent psychology is a combined knowledge that gives insight on the psychodynamics of aromatic plants and their odor. It contains knowledge on aromatic plants and essential oils, it’s chemical structures, traditional and modern use on the human body and mind, historical backgrounds and cultural habits.

 

For me this is a great challenge for research and an endless source of inspiration. I’d like to experience aromatic traditions first hand and stay on top of development on aroma science and scents, so I travel around.

 

As an Ambass’odor I share this knowledge

by creating Olfactory ART, scent projects , lectures and trainings
