So if I am just in an elevator with some bad cologne, I can smell it
on the clothes in my hamper a couple of days later, etc.

I am the one saying....."can you smell that?"

We have some inherited furniture, and I can smell the room deodorizer from its prior home, and that smell gets attached to my clothes on occasion. Luckily, I am the only one that can smell it :-).

Not generally, but the client whose deposition I had this morning wore so much perfume I had to pretend I was hot and open both windows.

Me (far away in the house)- "something's burning..have you taken out the bacon?"

Her ( in the kitchen) - " I don't smell anything....oh..."

I have a pretty good sniffer. It really helps with the coffee roasting hobby.

My sense of smell has always been acute and, in my old age, has not diminished much. A blessing and a curse.

I suffered a head injury in 1996 had a grand mal seizure because of it. I lost my sense of smell that day and it never returned.
Smelly mens rooms don't bother me a bit, on the other hand my wife has to smell the stuff out of the fridge, "is this still good?"

My acute sense of smell returned after I quit smoking over 20 years ago. It is a blessing and a curse. As a smoker I was pretty much nose-blind!

Not me but my wife has a too-keen sense. The whole world stinks to her in a way I'm happy I don't have to deal with.

My nose barely works, heck I can go 3 days without a shower before I start to stink.

Back in 2012, I was hit by a van while crossing the street. Lost my sense of smell after that. Taste? Not 100%, but ok. I miss Basil, Garlic, other cooking aromas.

I recommend using better cologne.

Some what, I can smell someone who uses a funky towel after a shower or bath. This seems to be prevalent at Walmart. This certain smell of musty, moldy, skunk, that I just recently put a handle on. At first I thought it might be me. Not! Evidently a cross section of the population believe that used bath towels are good for months.

Shoes,

Did that affect your sense of taste?

Burdened. Since I stopped smoking in 2001, I've been amazed at the oders that repulse me.

Stanky things and people out there. 😨

I have the same blessing/curse.

As an example I was to meet some friends kayaking who had gotten a head start on me and I had a pretty good paddle down river to catch up to them. One of the ladies in the group wears a very distinct perfume. I knew I was getting close because long before I caught up to them I could smell her perfume in the air about 5 minutes or so before I saw them.

To the bad side, I'll occasionally get a smell of something bad in my nose and can't shake it until I either get a whiff of something stronger or take a steamy shower.

Most perfume or cologne will make me gag and/or give me a headache.
