Before Proust, descriptions of smell memories had already figured in French literature since the beginning of the nineteenth century, for example in the works of Charles Baudelaire, George Sand, Gustave Flaubert, and still figures in contemporary fiction works such as Perfume by Patrick Süskind. Inspired by the power of smell memories in the literary genre, contemporary visual artists began designing and constructing installations, which allow visitors to experience at their leisure taste and olfactory stimuli that have the power to activate sense memories.
