I would have called someone crazy if they told me they smell smoke or any other intense smell that isnt there. Within the last year I kept smelling wood smoke that wasnt there. had that sensation for several days- it got so intense it kind of drives you crazy. Lately I been smelling car exhaust, but it doesnt last as long as the woodsmoke. Thought I was crazy and I looked it up, its a real thing. Anybody else smell odors that arent really there?

I have that nearly all the time since I had radiation on my throat.

I smell wood smoke a lot. Also I smell bananas...which I dislike greatly.

Covid related?
When I had covid over two years ago, I didn't lose my sense of smell, it just changed for a month or so.

Brain cancer and damage and cancer and damage to the olfactory nerve, which goes straight into the brain, can cause you to smell smells that are not present. You should probably see a doctor.

I concur. Had a BIL that smelled burnt toast, he died. Get to a Dr and get checked.


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Every now and then for the past 5 years or so, I smell cigarette smoke. I haven't smoked for over 30 years, except for my pipe.
I also occasionally smell small engine exhaust.
No cancer, COVID or any other afflictions.


Mistakes are proof you are trying.

Same here. Wood smoke or cigarette smoke and still have it on occasion. Weird!

When I experience phantom smells I hold my wife's head under the covers so she can experience them too.
