Smells and savours

I was walking through town and the smell of baked potato drifted past me. Then a smell of freshly cooking pie. Wonderful!

I began thinking. I sometimes react badly to a strong smell of food, of curry or something I can no longer eat. Maybe the thing is to learn to savour the smell for itself. Maybe I could train myself to enjoy the smell without missing the food. Perhaps at meals we could encourage people to produce strongly smelling food so we can enjoy its scent whilst tucking into our bland, salicylate-free food.

It would need to be strongly smelling because half the time I cannot smell it anyway through the old nlocked blose.
