I have anosmia, so be happy that your nose actually works.

I mean, at least I can't smell farts, or dirty peasants.

My own sense of smell... I assumed it to be average to poor before I stayed with my godmother. I can smell so many things she can't, but her sense of smell doesn't appear to be significantly below average and is probably average, so now I think I have a slightly above average. In terms of my favorite RPG (GURPS), probably one level of Acute Smell/Taste (which might also explain why I am such a picky eater).

As for some smells not bothering you... I think that is likely a separate matter. The reason certain things bother humans but not a dog isn't because their improved sense of smell makes it "smell better", it is because "disgusting" is a built in survival response; stuff that repulses humans is (usually) also unhealthy. I've had my share of "odor horror" moments when I realize a strong scent I found interesting was something quite nasty. XD

In that same boat, brah. My dad smokes a whole bunch around me, and I can't smell anything anymore.

So you can't smell yourself. Lucky. We can.

Dirty peasant.

Didn't realize you had magic internet smelling, are you a wizard?

Last wizard I met was a peasant.

That's exactly what a dirty peasant would say.

Doesn't really matter since I'm going to steal your face.

I, my forumites, have a rather good nose. I can distinguish and smell scents rather clearly when my nose isn't clogged, and even can tell what kind of foods are being used/cooked due to its odor. A sensitive nose, clearly.

Except, not really. I find that odors that most people find offensive, such as sweat and the like, don't bother me at all. There are even some scents that are thought of as gross that I do not mind at all, and perhaps even like a little.

So why, if I can smell things more clearly than other people, do I find them not as offensive, not at all offensive, or even pleasant? Does anyone else feel this way?

Is it kind of similar as to why dogs, which have so much more sensitive noses than ours, aren't offended by odors us humans find offensive?

As a bonus note, the odors I actually find bad are overwhelmingly strong ones like perfumes and colognes that smell like the person wearing them bathed in the offending substance.


Can you track stuff? Like Gon in HxH?
