Question: I keep smelling a sweet perfumey odor that no one else can smell. It has been happening for about a week now. I have not changed any soaps or deoderants. It is driving me crazy. Do you have any idea what I could be experiencing? Sue

Illness, injury, respiratory infections, sinus infections, dental problems, hormonal disturbances can all be causes of smell disorders.
