Sentosphere’s adventure started in 1989 with Follow your Nose (“Loto des Odeurs” in French).
Our founder and CEO, Veronique Debroise, who used to be a perfume maker, has always been convinced that a good sense of smell is essential to a child’s development. She believes that it is as important to awaken your sense of smell than to learn mathematics of history! This led her to create Follow your Nose: an olfactory game based on smell recognition.
Quickly, Veronique Debroise realised it was also important to develop other senses. She therefore created kits and educational games centred around the sense of taste, sight and touch. As sensory awakening is tightly linked to artistic creativity, Veronique Debroise launched Aquarellum, Sablimage and Patarev that are part of our best sellers today.
In the meantime, she also invented cosmetic and scientific laboratories to help people create their own soaps, glosses, bath bombs or even slimes (amongst other fun experiments), with safe and eco-friendly ingredients!
Our mission: awakening your senses
Regardless of your age, your gender or your health… Every day, we get up in the morning with one goal in mind: revealing passions and callings that are nesting inside of you!
For the past 30 years, our kits have been centred around sensory awakening and personal growth through creativity thanks to educational and intuitive methods open to all. Our kits are specially designed to accompany you through magical scientific, olfactory and creative experiments.
Whether it is alone, with family, or friends, everyone can learn all the while having fun! This is something we try to convey through all of our products.
Follow your Nose
Exotic fruits, flowers and daily delicious smells are presented in this olfactory game. The 30 smell capsules of the Loto des Odeurs (Follow your Nose) will help you discover our world through a new sensory dimension!
This game will be full of discoveries that all ages can magically share to enrich their sensory awakening. The game rules are easy and challenging: all you need to do is recognise a smell and associate it with the illustration that represents it. The first player that completes its board, without any mistakes, wins the game!

Our Tips & Tricks
Our smell capsules are guaranteed for a minimum of 2 years, but can last for much longer if you close them after each use with the right cap. Keep this game far from a heat source.
Somebody that is not used to using their nose may find that olfactory recognition can be hard. However, we guarantee you that with a little training, it will become very easy!
Our first tip is to try and categorise the smell: is it sugary? salty? fruity? flowery? Woody? etc.
Our second tip is to try and remember what that smell makes you think of. Actually, our sense of smell is the one that is the most linked to our memory! A simple smell can make you think of a season (strawberries in summer), a person (grandma’s lemon smell), a favourite dish (curry), a yogurt flavour, a cream fragrance, a place, etc. Making this link will automatically help to put a name on the smell you are trying to recognise.
Also, smells are like colours. For example, there are as many shades of green as there are apple smells! A green apple does not exactly smell like a red apple, that smells differently from apple sauce or apple pie! The smells presented in our games are therefore one of the many available versions of smells that you can find around you.
Recognising smells will become a true Memory game, using all your souvenirs as a reference palette.
