In nose range?

I want to indicate that something is close enough to smell, but I want to do so in a way that matches these examples: "in sight" for close enough to see, "in reach" for close enough to touch, and "in earshot" for close enough to hear. I keep thinking there must be a simple and obvious way to phrase it, but right now I'm drawing a blank.

Why do some things smell better than they taste? And how/can I change that?

When I smell many foods, they nearly always smell better than they taste. Whatever it is smells marvelous but as soon as I pop it in my mouth I wonder where the flavor went. My question is why this might be, whether it is just me, and what I can do, if anything, to improve my sense of "taste".* [more inside]

Distinctive smell of sexually-aroused men's breath?

I recently went out on a date with a woman I'm interested in. (I'm an early-30s male.) It's very early in the proceedings, so we're still getting used to each other. Anyway, during this date, she informed me that sexually-aroused men have a particular odor in their breath, and that I'd had it all evening. Later on, she told me that she actually didn't care for the odor at all, which was news to me. This is the first I've heard of this phenomenon, so I'd like to learn more about it. [more inside]
