I've been battling a cold for three days now, and while I feel a lot better, I'm still pretty congested and unable to smell much.
At work today, a customer asked me if I could help her find something. "Sure," I said. She wanted to know what that wonderful smell was and where it was coming from. I had to tell her I had no idea what she was talking about.
Later, upstairs, I heard another customer say to her friend, "This place smells weird -- like perfume and popcorn." Since she was standing next to a bath products display and was (unbeknownst to her) about 20 feet from the employee breakroom, I wasn't surprised. But I couldn't smell anything.
The only aroma I picked up on today occurred during my walk back to my car when I got off work. I passed the Target gardening center, where they're selling Christmas trees, and I could smell the pine needles. It was divine.
