Take a whiff outta this list!

Fun fact: people can detect at least one trillion distinct scents (It’s true! We Googled this)!

Ground Rules

  • This one’s pretty basic but it has to be smell (duh) that you can smell through your nose
  • It has to be a distinct smell and not an “idea’ /”feeling” /or “concept” of a smell (ie The smell of Freedom).
  • That’s it.
