A hat tip to Kate Petrova (via Neatorama) for posting on Twitter a trend of customer reviews of scented candles.
"First, I downloaded a random subsample of US-based customer reviews of the 3 most popular scented candles on Amazon. Between January 2017 and January 2020, the average rating stayed around 4.3/5, but there was a sharp drop between January and November 2020."
Corresponding of course to the arrival and spread of coronavirus. And related... This young lady tasted a Starbucks concoction with whipped cream and caramel and noted that it had "no taste."
The two senses are of course tightly linked, and each is recognized as a potential symptom of coronavirus infection.
Judging by the voiceover in the video, some people's hearing appears to be affected as well.ReplyDelete
About 10/15 years ago I lost my sense of smell for about a week. Between the stress I put on myself worrying that I'd be blown up by gas leak and the fact nothing tasted good, it was the best diet I've ever been on, lost about 15lbsReplyDelete
Still wouldn't recommend it.
Dulera for asthma has pretty much destroyed my sense of smell.ReplyDelete
Inhaled intranasally? or into the lungs? (just curious)Delete
Lungs, inhaler and a spacer.ReplyDelete
Good re the spacer. I have no idea why it would diminish your sense of smell.Delete
