Women have a more developed sense of smell than men. How much can smell turn you on…or off? Check out what Andrew, Joanie and Chuck have to say

I like the kinds of smells that remind me if things or someone...apples, pumpkin pie and cinnamon in the Fall, that newborn baby smell...theres a kind of comfort in that.

I think it's possible that women in our culture, currently, may have a higher value on their sense of smell than many men feel the need for.

Sensory acuity is often as much a result of practice, attention and training as it is the physical ability to smell.

Hmm it says I can't watch it on my iPad 

but smell can save our life, if something smells bad you won't eat it I guess.  If a guy smells good maybe you would be attracted and have babies

 I love to smell the scent of fresh cut grass,baby powder,lilacs. The smell of a rain storm. Of course there are bad smells.

LOL  Well....my son use to tell me that I only bought certain cleaning supplies because of the way they smell.  lol  Smell is important....I constantly burn candles, buy nice scented lotions, perfume etc....It makes me feel better to smell something nice.

Smell can definitely trigger different feelings and different memories.

It says the video is not compatible with my device (iPad).

interesting that women have a more developed sense of smell.  I always tell my SO that he's hard of smelling. lol

I agree

I can't see the video but sense of smell is very important because it causes our other senses to react including emotions.
