Smell is a ubiquitous and powerful way in which we make sense of the world, but is largely taken for granted and under-analysed. The geographies wrapped up with smell relate to our everyday experiences of place, and the mapping of these perceptions and their affects has great potential for revealing hitherto unseen social and cultural norms. This chapter charts some of the ways in which smell mapping might be enacted. It explores different temporalities associated with our smellscapes, documents the potential of different technologies and mobilities for attending to smell, and contrasts different embodied and social modes of ‘doing smell’. The links between smell and other sensory geographies are explored. In so doing it argues for a multi-sensorial turn in mundane methods.
