Gwenael Allan, a senior member of Cresswell Advisors, is the founder of Sensory Odyssey. SO provides a unique dimension in the life sciences being amongst the first worldwide to utilize olfactory senses to stimulate neural responses as additions to visual and aural appreciation of presentations.
The novelty and power of olfactory sensory stimulation will be presented at the initial SO exhibition being launched by France’s prestigious and historied (created by King Louis XIII in 1635) Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle in 2021.
SO’s exhibitions are expected to add real-life experiences to the research undertaken at sensory-specific academic organizations such as Philadelphia’s Monell Chemical Senses Center. That latter generates knowledge of the mechanisms and functions of the chemical senses relevant to issues related to public health, national health policy, and quality of life that experiences at SO’s exhibitions would help to validate. SO’s exhibitions will be rolled out internationally following the 2021 launch. The brand has been established on four years of intensive research involving recognized names in the field including International Flavors and Fragrances. The organization is funded by private equity with the largest investor being the Caisse des dépôts et consignations, the investment arm of the French State.
