Olfactory mental images are defined as short-term memory representations of olfactory events that give rise to the experience of "smelling with the mind's nose." The present paper reviewed converging evidences that support the view that as visual mental images, odor mental images preserve some aspects of olfactory percepts. The role of olfactomotor mechanisms in recalling olfactory mental images from long-term memory to short-term memory is also discussed.
