OLFACTORIUM

noun. an examination chamber designed for concise and accurate gauging of olfactory operations, particularly odor sensitivity. The very controlled odor surroundings introduce pure air or odorant-bearing air. The testee generally bathes and then puts on a protective suit before entering the chamber.

OLFACTORIUM: "The olfactorium was sealed to make sure outside odors could not permeate the chamber."
