Noseblindness is a common condition that affects millions of us. We sent our roving reporter to investigate.
Scent can have a wonderful impact on your environment, but with so many options it can be confusing to decide what goes where.
Your nose is an amazing thing. You can’t look at it without using a mirror or squinting (you’re trying right now, aren’t you?) and yet it can deliver some of the most powerful sensations we experience. So how does it all work?
Most of us get so acclimatised to the odours that surround us every day, we stop noticing them altogether. This is called noseblindness.
The trouble is our family and friends can still smell the odours that we’ve become ‘blind’ to (so that’s why they haven’t been round in a while!).
The good news is you can easily make sure you home smells fresh as the proverbial daisy.
Did you know that a woman’s sense of smell is far more acute than a man’s? Or that it’s the first sense to develop when we’re little?
If you’re constantly on the receiving end of feeble excuses when you invite your friends over, have you considered that your home might smell a little eau de dog?
We all love our pets, but no one wants a home that smells a bit like a kennel, and whilst, we might get so used to the whiff we barely notice it - a common thing called noseblindness – our guests’ noses might not be quite so unaware!

What’s the real reason behind those declined RSVPs?
You love cooking and you’ve been told that you’re a veritable Masterchef. So why won’t your friends and family accept your dinner party invitations? It can’t be the standard of your cooking, so it may have something to do with your home not smelling as nice as it might.
You may not have heard of noseblindness but you could well be suffering from it. Most of us take our sense of smell for granted. But what if we told you that most of us become so used to the smells around us, we actually become immune to them. This means we stop noticing leftover cooking odours, stinky pet smells or the whiff of stale takeaways in their car. It won't hurt to also check out more tips to keep your home and car smelling fresh.
