In that podcast Frauke explained that there are various types of smell dysfunction. Here are two: Anosmia, for example, became a keyword to describe when one is infected with COVID-19, and permanently or temporarily loses the sense of Smell. Anosmia = loss.
There’s also Parosmia, which is Smell dysfunction that distorts the smell of things. One example I read about is that sweet smells may instead smell rotten. Parosmia = distorts.
Our sense of Smell is being recognized in a new light. At my Website you can learn more about Smell dysfunction at the link below.
