Are scent memories important? Do you think manufacturers of scented products are concerned with memory and emotion when it comes to marketing? You would be surprised. Perfumer, Holladay Saltz, asks poignant questions about whether such companies should have the influence they do over your memories.
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. It was filmed and edited by Tijo Media at the Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Arts Center in Richmond, VA.

While working as a creative director and chief creative officer of web-based technology and media companies, Holladay Saltz became increasingly disillusioned by digital media’s frayed connections to the tangible world. A chance reading of Diane Ackerman’s, “A Natural History of the Senses,” led her to reexamine her lifelong fascination with the sense of smell and the ancient, storied history of fragrance and fragrant raw materials. After years of study in the process of formulation and production, she was able to train with Le Labo Fragrances in New York City and went on to found the independent fragrance line Apoteker Tepe in 2014. Now as a Perfumer, she now splits her time between New York City and Providence, Rhode Island.

I've held onto a bottle of my mom's perfume since I was 14.. the same bottle she used 14 years ago.. half my life I've lived with the last drops of her perfume, and every time I smell it I Instantly get overtaken by intense emotions
Great Tedtalk ~ In my first aid class we talk about the region of the brain where the olfactory system is housed and how smell is never analytical but emotional. I'll have students write about a childhood memory of smell and it is always fascinating to read the essays. Rarely have they ever thought about the emotional attachment to that smell or the bad memory affiliated with the smell. The olfactory system is one of the most primitive systems humans have and is fascinating. Thanks Holladay for sharing your thoughts and research!
