Smell - impaired

Loss of smell; Anosmia; Hyposmia; Parosmia; Dysosmia

Impaired smell is the partial or total loss or abnormal perception of the sense of smell.

As a person inhales, air and scent molecules move past the smell receptors in the nose. In turn, the smell receptors relay a signal to the brain. Smells can trigger memories and emotional responses.
