The nose is a special organ in our body.
Like taste, smell is also a chemical sensation. For taste, the substance must be in liquid form, for smell it must ne in gaseous form. Volatile substances have generally strong odors. After reaching the nose the vapor gets dissolved in the local secretion and stimulates the olfactory epithelium. Olfactory sensation is the most primitive of all special senses and is much more acute than taste.

A man can detect mercaptan and artificial musk in a dilution of one part in several million parts or air. In many animals the sensation of smell is much more acute than in man.

Loss of the sense of smell is known as anosmia. It occurs due to congenital abnormalities of olfactory bulbs or nerves. During inflammation of nasal mucosa there is temporary loss of smell.

Hypersomnia is the morbid sensitiveness to odors. It occurs in hysteria, in raised intracranial pressure.
