Odorless World

I saw an online article which resonated with me.  The visuals are stunning in this. It is called “Odorless world: what smell means to those who don’t have it ” I do remember having a sense of smell when I was young. But I don’t remember when I lost it or why. I can smell but very very few things and very feebly. There was once a gas leak in my apartment but thankfully my maid was there at that moment and she found it. Also, she would tell me if she was working at the time if the food was overcooked and was about to be burnt. I can never tell. I do get a little whiff of my lavender oil which I use for aromatherapy. And the petrol smell when we are the gas station. Other than that…not much. It is a good thing especially when you are in a crowded lift or if one passes gas next to you. It is a bad thing during cooking mostly. But do I mind about it now? No. I am used to it. I don’t care about it. Will it be good to have it back? If it happens on its own, yes. I ain’t going to get any surgery or treatment done for that.

    One of the side benefits of the loss of scent is that you will tend to eat less and not gain weight. The smell of good food is a big enticer.

      Somehow that is not a deal breaker for me 😉 I am one of those who eat just because 😀

        When it tastes so good it’s awfully hard to stop eating.

    I have the same problem, but mine is a deviated septum. It is surgically repairable, but the airflow through my nose is not blocked enough to go through all that, I’ll live in this odorless world. 🙂

      My brother has the same problem 🙂 His doctor suggested surgery, which he declined. It isn’t a bad world, this odorless world, isn’t 😉
