For the last several months, I smell coffee - everywhere - in my car, in my bathroom, at work, outside. It's beginning to make me think that either I'm emitting a coffee odor or I'm hallucinating a smell that does not exist.
Do you drink coffee? Ive heard that people who eat a lot of onions and/or garlic emit an onion/garlic odor through their skin.
Every now and then I'll get a whiff of something that I know I didn't really smell. Homemade vanilla ice cream. My Grandma's bathroom. (It smelled of Vitalis. lol) Bayberry. The scent of a new disposable diaper.
zippo_mo Maybe my sniffer if just going out on me.
That can happen. My ex-dh had no sense of smell. He was born without it. If the headaches coincided with the odd coffee smell,maybe you should see a doctor. Hope its nothing...maybe somebody is playing a joke on you and you have a coffee bean hidden in your clothes or something...lol????
I once read that Stevie Wonder lost his sense of smell in a car accident.

I've often been accused of smelling things that aren't there--but that's only because I have an extremely accute sense of smell and often smell stuff 2-3 minutes before those around me do. Then, they suddenly say something to the effect, "Oh, NOW I smell it!" with surprise.
The only time I really smell stuff that isn't there is when I suddenly get a whiff of a very distinctive, repulsive smell that smells like a combo of cigar smoke, wet plaster and mold--if you see the post above.... For years, that's been my most common aura when I'm heading intoa migraine.
Hi Zippo! Yes! I smell things all the time that aren't there! I'll get this strong smell of cigarette smoke and I haven't smoked in 11 years! Sometimes I smell coffee too. :)
One time I kept on smelling Dunkin Donuts! I liked that one much better than the cigarette smoke...btw. So, I'm at the checkout in the grocery store (all cat food...no donuts) and I'm helping the kid put the cans in the bag and she keeps on sniffing the air. lol. So, I ask her what she smells and she says to me "do you smell Dunkin Donuts?" lol.
What's that smell?

Yes, I get a smokey smell a lot. I read somewhere that it could be a vitamin diffeciency. Also the migraine thing sounds interesting. I get the eye aurora sometimes associated with migraines but without the headach.
I have the nose of a bloodhound. I always say I should get a job as a drug/bomb sniffer, LOL
DH makes fun of me when I smell something icky. He says, "That's your upper lip!".
At least your smell is pleasant, like coffee.
Ohhhhh "I smell dead people...and their everywhere!" Something lead me to believe all of you are posting from the local state hospital.
