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]

How to tell a date to tone down the cologne?

Help me find a nice/funny/not insane way to tell a guy I just started seeing that he's wearing too much cologne for me. Maybe I'm like this previous asker, but I find myself thinking things like, "ok, I'll sleep with him once and THEN tell him," which I know is kind of crazy. (Mostly because I'd rather not smell his cologne on my sheets for weeks after.) Is it ok to tell someone you just met that your lizard brain would like him a LOT better if he toned down the artificial scenting? I'm gay, if that matters, but any relevant experience or advice is welcome. Have you ever dealt with this situation successfully? [more inside]

How to make my house not smell (so badly) of decomposing critter.

My house smells like decomposing critter. A critter died at a point in my chimney that it cannot be removed without removing the masonry and taking apart the chimney. (It died on the shelf above the damper.) The chimney dude recommended we just wait it out and said that with the average daily temp being 90+, it should be 'fast.' However, it's really damn disgusting and we're a week into a likely 2-3 week process. In the meantime, recommend any smells to help offset the stench? [more inside]

How can I get rid of the smell of disinfectant?

Our basement flooded with sewage last week and was cleaned and then disinfected with Jeyes Fluid (a very strong dinsinfectant). Whilst this is a great improvement on the previous smell, it is pretty overpowering, and a week later there's no signs of it fading... Any tips for neutralising smell/replacing it with something better? Have tried leaving doors/windows open/incense/candles/air freshener to no effect.
