N2 - We report an individual with music-odor synaesthesia who experiences automatic and vivid odor sensations when she hears music. Stextquoterights odor associations were recorded on two days, and compared with those of two control participants. Overall, S produced longer descriptions, and her associations were of multiple odors at once, in comparison to controls who typically reported a single odor. Although odor associations were qualitatively different between S and controls, ratings of the consistency of their descriptions did not differ.
