Quirky factoid that some of you may not know about me. I cannot smell. I have sinus problems and this results in a complete loss of smell. I have had two surgeries for it and can smell for brief periods following surgery and for brief periods following an intense round of medications for my sinuses, but by and large the smell is gone.
This is a bummer for me and something that makes me a little self-conscious. I always worry about whether my house smells (because a gal can’t depend on a darling hubby or a 3-year old to tell her), if my son needs a diaper change and if my personal air is socially acceptable (in other words, do I stink?). I compensate for this lacking by burning candles I can’t smell and wearing perfume I can’t enjoy.
I also try to open the windows in our home when possible, clean regularly and check in with those with working sniffers regularly to see if the air is clear (of stink).
But I am curious, what do you do to keep your abode smelling acceptable? Any favorite smells you tend to gravitate towards?
