They say smell is the strongest sense tied to memory, and the Urban Olfactory exhibit at SPUR Urban Center will definitely be a trip down down memory lane (Grew up in New Jersey? Ah, smell that turnpike!). Yes, turnpike smells.
The exhibit will feature scents from agrarian and urban settings throughout history. Admit it, you're curious of about what 18th century Paris smelled like. (And you already know what cookies and roses smell like anyway.)
The exhibit (SPUR Gallery, 654 Mission) runs through March 31, and is free.
