Smell is an obscure composition in the space planning and design processes, while visual and audial aspects are more dominant. Smell has an important place in the preference of the place, is an important factor affecting people in terms of sociological, psychological and bioclimatic comforts, although it differs from person to person. In this study, the existence of natural and artificial smell sources in historical environments and the effect of the smell of the preference of these environments were investigated. The study was carried out in historical sites located in the urban site in the centre of Kastamonu province. The study emphasises that in the process of space planning and design, smell should be evaluated together with other senses. Also, attempts have been made to determine the contribution of the sources of smell to historical places, which has an important position for urban identity.
