Smell Of Success


Abode2 speaks to Chrissi Kelly, founder of AbScent, about smell training and restoring and rejuvenating olfactory performance

According to latest data from AbScent, the charity that supports people impacted by all types of smell disorders, more than 3.85million people in the UK are currently affected by smell loss.

Smell training is one of the only treatments evidenced to improve smell. Smell training is the process of actively sniffing the same four scents every day, spending around 20 seconds on each scent with intense concentration. It is easy, safe, and recommended by doctors. Anyone can do smell training if they would like to improve their sense of smell.

Chrissi Kelly, Founder, AbScent, retains her lead role in developing scientific research to increase understanding of olfactory illnesses. She said; “Viruses, trauma and even dementia contribute to smell loss, and with disastrous repercussions for mental health, happiness, and relationships. There has been a remarkable surge in cases due to Covid-19 and Long Covid. Many people struggle to find help and support. That is where we step in to help. AbScent has developed smell training kits to give people hope, and to help them retrain their sense of smell.”

AbScent’s smell training kits have been proven to improve sense of smell, and clinically developed to exercise the olfactory process. AbScent’s smell training kits come in three varieties, or you can even build your own:

Original Smell Training Kit

Original smell training kit of rose, lemon, clove and eucalyptus. The ideal starter kit for smell training, four specially blended long-lasting aromas inspired by the fragrances of the original 2009 study.

Free shipping to UK addresses. Costs for shipping outside the UK will be added at checkout.



Trees Collection

Take your smell training to a different place with the woodland inspired aromas of Cypress, Juniper, Pine and Cedar.

Using four fragrances drawn from the same family of woody aromas, this uplifting collection challenges you to think about what you’re smelling on a deeper level. Lose yourself in a woodland trail, surrounded by the delicious aromas.9-


Squish Therapy Dough

AbScent has teamed up with the fabulous people at Squish to offer you a different way to exercise your sense of smell. Combine sniffing with squishing for a multi-sensory experience using these three colourful scented doughs.

This set of three uses the aroma of lavender, a blend of citrus and a minty blast. These fun doughs have been created to reduce feelings of anxiety, but we've found them another way to focus on your sensory experience as you 'exercise' your nose.


AbScent’s smell training kits are available in three varieties, and can be exported to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. 100% of proceeds directly support the work of the charity.

Smell loss includes a broad range of conditions including, anosmia, hyposmia, parosmia, and phantosmia. AbScent has an unrivalled resource of trusted information delivered by a distinguished advisory board and working with the latest scientific and clinical evidence. AbScent advocates to increase understanding and raise awareness of the conditions and their impacts supporting research into smell conditions.
