You walk in the kitchen after someone’s been cooking Brussels sprouts and ask, “What’s that smell?” You open the window early in the morning and wonder at the aroma of burning toast from some neighbor’s open window. You look for the source of phantom smells, like cigarette smoke, that don’t even exist in your house. You stick your nose in the washing machine to see if that vinegary smell comes out of it.
Do you smell that? What’s that smell?
