What smells do you associate with Los Angeles?

This survey is asks you to consider Los Angeles as a “scent-scape”. What smells do you associate with various LA neighborhoods? Below you will find neighborhoods consolidated into ten geographic regions. You may answer any or all of the questions. Your answers will inform an olfactory artwork by Brian Goeltzenleuchter that will premier at the Santa Monica Museum of Art later this year. Learn more about the project here.
