How to Measure Odors

Odors are normally quantified by dynamic dilution olfactometric analysis. Olfactometric analysis consists of determining the olfactory perception threshold of a gaseous sample. The olfactory perception threshold is defined as the number of dilutions at which 50% of a jury perceives the odor while 50% do not. This does not involve the determination of the quality of the odor. By definition, the olfactory perception threshold is equivalent to 1 odor unit per cubic meter of air: "1 o.u./m3". The number of dilutions of the odor sample required to obtain 1 o.u./m3 indicates the odor concentration of the sample in odor units per cubic meter of air [o.u./m3].

One has the right to swing their arm up to the point that a closed fist approaches another person’s nose. At that point, the other person’s right not to be assaulted prevails.
