The dynamic olfactometry is a method where a panel of human assessors evaluates the concentration of odour in a series of standardized presentations of a gas sample.
Care must be taken to prevent odor fatigue of the human olfactometry system, which is when a person no longer detects an odor after an intense odor experience or a long period of exposure to odorous air.
Thus, in dynamic-dilution olfactometry there is a mixture of air flows, as opposed to air volumes.

An effective approach to identifying compounds that cause odor quality defects combines conventional gas chromatograph and mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) methods with olfactometry and multidimensional GC separation techniques.
A more accepted method for odor assessment is olfactometry, which has been established as American Standards of Testing and Measurements (ASTM) methods E1432-91 and E679-91 (ASTM 1997a, 1997b, respectively).
The objectives of this study were to characterize volatile compounds and to determine aroma impact compounds in various fish sauces using gas chromatography coupled with an ion trap mass selective detector (GC-MSD) and a solid phase microextraction-OSME-gas chromatography olfactometry (SPME-OSME-GCO) technique that was coupled with dilution methods.
