      Ha! That’s a rather ambiguous question? 😉

      I’ll *assume* that you mean how much do I smell other things! Actually, not a lot. I do not have a very good sense of smell. Although I can smell some things (for example the smoke from a fire), I can’t smell lots of things. For example, some people say that certain flowers smell quite strongly, but when I sniff at them, I get nothing.

      I don’t know why. I guess that I’m just hard of smelling (in the same way that others might be hard of hearing).

      I smell very nice thank you! 🙂

      As Derek said, we all have different sensitivities to smells — I have a strong sense of smell so it is quite an important sense to me, especially for things like food.

      Apologies if this did not answer your question — can you elaborate?

      I would just like to say that I smell good all of the time! A lot of body odors come from bacteria that live in sweaty places but I am not very good at sweating therefore I smell good! Even if I am in a sauna I don’t sweat, it’s weird! I just go pink instead!
