Smell Tests

UPSIT Smell Test You can buy the self-administered 40-odour test from the company maintaining this site. This test, also known as SIT (Smell Identification Test) is widely accepted by physicians but has odours that are only recognised by USA citizens (e.g. root beer). A less comprehensive "Cross Cultural" test (CC-SIT) has been developed for use outside the USA.
