I was just really curious about our differences as a person when it comes to our sense of smell... 😁
It's kinda interesting to know...
Weirdest? I don't know. I mean, smells are either good, neutral, or bad. Not sure if you can even say a smell is "weird" because smells generally smell exactly how you think they would.
There was this one time, I was visiting someone in Japan and we were on the metro and for whatever reason there was this god awful smell, and I have no idea how to describe it. You know when you rake leaves and forget to scoop the pile up, and they get wet, and then they start to kind of decompose and rot? You get that really funky smell?
Well, it was like that, but overwhelmingly strong. I had no idea if it was a human person making that smell or some unknown foreign food item, but it was probably one of the a.) worst and b.) weirdest smells I've experienced.
I went to D&D convention in the late 80's. There was a smell combo of ass funk and vinegar that hit me in the main hall at one point. Pretty sure it was from this one big dude that I passed when it was at it's strongest.
Oh man, haha. Might of made that convention more memorable for you that's for sure.
Good smells off the top of my head: New magazines, plastics, windex, wood fires, mint/herbs, nice women, nothing at all.
Bad smells of the top of my head: Trash compactor of a supermarket, horrible body odor with bad hygiene or no deodorant, too much overpowering body spray, cologne or perfume, skunks, cat urine, dogs with scent glands, ferrets, geese crap, rotting fish, nasty hospital waiting rooms, bathrooms in a Walmart.
As of recently, powdered buttermilk. I was learning how to make buttermilk pancakes the other day, but our powdered buttermilk for some reason clumped into a bunch of chunks so we took the coffee grinder out to grind them back to powder, and when i took the lid off, a huge whiff of that stuff hit me and it was awful. Stayed with me the whole day.
