Guided by Scents

Rethinking the senses: how scent plays with memory and experience.

As we strolled through Healdsburg and Sonoma County, I took a step back and began to imagine what these moments would look like if we thought of them in a different light. Sight and taste are the most obvious senses we tap into the most when we travel, but what if we expand that? What if we focused on the background noises, the feeling of the textures we encounter, and the scents that guide us from place to place? On your next journey, I encourage you to re-think your senses, embrace them differently, and discover how much richer and more present you become. 

Without further ado, here are just a few scent maps that can inspire you to guide your days in this town called Healdsburg.
