I like some smells that many people seem to dislike, ex, plastic paint, or gasoline, or the (idk how to say in english) the "medicine" for incects in argiculture. and I don't like much the smell of soil after rain, that seems to be a popular smell - it smells a bit like wet $#%^ to me. Guess I am a city boy and more used to industrialized smells than natural ones

Regarding foods, people smells, etc, I don't think I am more sensitive or less sensitive than other people - not that I have anything to compare, anyway, as I don't know how other people perceive smells. It does take a lot more for a smell to disgust me than most people though. Plus I get used very fast even to the most nasty smell and completely stop perceiving it after a while

I saved my house from a fire twice as a child, first time the gas was still on and the second time an actual small fire (it was put out with water but could’ve burned the house down later) already broke out on a different floor and no one else noticed. In general I don’t think there’s anything abnormal about it now, it’s probably worse because I smoke

I'm sensitive to most scents, especially since I quit smoking. I like the smell of gasoline and freshly-cut wood, but that's probably because I spend the more pleasant parts of my life on a lake where my grandfather builds boats and my close family friends own a marina.

I don't understand. Is that you in the kitchen or is that from a movie?

I'd say my sense of smell is pretty damn good. I'm currently sensing something, unfortunately unpleasant, after someone else sat here. And it's squirming into my nose like a visibly half detectable echo.
Recently I was in the prosess of sitting down, when I could tell my son had left a bag of sweets under sofa cushions. And I was right.

Yeah, I've quit smoking.

I'm ok with smells from daisies to decay. I do not mind breathing unless it is unsafe or possibly loud.
Which one is pain?

Most smells don't bother me, decomposing bodies always seem sweet to me. I think people have a revulsion to human decay, not so much for the actual smell, but due to the association.

Dog sh1t; now there's one that will make me gag. Cat sh1t too.
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

I can handle most stinky smells, but cat piss and my bird's farts, oh boy...

I was in a shopping center once and I swear the guy near me shlt-farted. He looked like he had a diaper on under his pants, so I wouldn't be surprised if he actually did. I still don't know how I managed to survive that stink.

I can handle the smell of dog and cat shlt. It's gross, but tolerable.

I was thinking about this and I can't remember a single bad smell that has ever made me gag. The shlt-fart that guy did in the shopping center almost made me gag, but didn't. It was just a really bad smell, but nothing I couldn't handle. I've noticed that I have a really strong stomach when it comes to smells.
