We all experience different smells in our daily lives, from visiting a kitchen in our home to enjoying a garden filled with a mixture of enticing flowers. Different industries, different species, and different things smell differently, and a question mostly clicks in our mind what is the jargon for this smell. We can sum up all the smells in only three words “Fragrant, musty, and stinky.” Learning smell vocabulary is important as we can smell something without actually smelling it.
