How do you smell? [More:]I can't tell if the weird odor permeating my living room is me or the dead fishies in the Long Island Sound. Also, I can't tell if my sense of smell is totally screwed because of my allergies.

How about you?
Deviated septum... I smell with one nostril at a time.

Due to the high tree pollen count, I can't right now.

like cigarettes, peanuts, and stale beer. with an undertone of sweat.

Wow, I clicked through to see if you were asking "How do you smell?" or "How do you smell?" and it looks like you're asking, um, both.


So... after a bout of sinusitis, my nose is recovering to normal, thanks very much. So I smell fine.

Kissing my fella goodbye before work, I noticed he smelled slightly different, clean and light but gently fragrant, and I remarked upon it. Turns out he's out of soap, so he used mine. Ah! So I guess I smell pretty fabulous, really. Good to know.

I felt Light Blue (by D&G) today so I smell kinda like green apples; when I feel pink, I smell like raspberries (Gucci II) and on the rare occasions that I feel orange, I smell, well, orange-y (Clinique Happy).

Ooh, orangey. Mmmm, in a room full of 20 strangers, I'd stand next to you.

Spicy. Old Spicy.

Like a multi-vitamin. Just can't shake it.

How I smell probably would depend heavily on where you stick your nose.

Ein schtick!

My sense of smell is freakishly acute. I'm the kind who can walk into a room and say "I smell banana," when no bananas are visible, only to eventually find that one is concealed in a desk drawer.

But how do I smell? Lately, like the grapefruity Aveda shampoo I started splurging on.companies." Oh. Okayyyy.

Kinda musty. Thinking "shower" here.

The sensitivity of my nose varies pretty widely throughout the month. Hormones, what? I have been known to say that all the good smells in the world do not make up for all the gut-wrenchingly awful ones.

Currently I smell like popcorn, windex and Dep hair gel (possibly the most distinctive smell in the universe).

Do I stink? No.

Right now I smell like a combination of onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, chili peppers and basil. Just a regular day at the office.

I smell like roses, heena (Indian oil, woody, spicy), and girl sweat. I like it.

My sense of smell is right up there on par with Miko's. (Which, I think, we've talked about before...)

I've probably passed the portion of the day where I smell like soaps and oils and whatnot, but I don't think I've gotten to the point where I smell like sweat. Here in the afternoon, I probably don't smell like much of anything.

After a day in the sweatbox that is my classroom, a bit like raw chicken, I think.

(great answer, mischief : )

I smell of fags, washing powder and man. That last one, mainly because I haven't used a deodorant in about 10 years. Although I shower regular so it aint overwhelming or unpleasant.

My nostrils are clear, so it is clear to me that i smell like sex...and lavender Dr. Bronner's...

I smell like vanilla and cigarettes. You'd be amazed what a popular combination that seems to be among the male half of the population.
