Can Not Smell: Anosmia

defines anosmia as lack of olfaction or a loss of the ability to smell. Many people may not realise they have this disorder until they encounter a situation whereby it is obvious that they had missed an odour or smell. It is distressing and could lead to depression in some. There is another condition called “hyposmia” where an individual’s ability to smell is diminished. He would be able to catch the smell only when the odour/fragrance intensity is high.
