Abstract

The 'Sniffin' Sticks' olfactory test contains pen-like odour dispensing devices which are used to assess olfactory threshold, discrimination and identification. Odour identification is strongly dependent on familiarity with the odours and has an important cultural component which has limited the usefulness of other validated tests. The 'Sniffin' Sticks' test was developed in Germany and is validated in other countries but not in the UK. This study aims to validate the applicability of 'Sniffin' Sticks' in a local population.
