  • Women tend to have slightly better sense of smell and hearing from what I have read (it was many years ago so I don't know if its been debunked or if its fact).

  • I disagree, but I don't know the science behind it.. it could be true for all I know. Per experience, I disagree, however.

  • Probably. I know women see more color than us men. We also look at the broad picture when women kinda nit pick lol.

  • Perhaps. I have no idea. I would think someone who doesn't have a stuffed up nose can smell scents better than someone who does.

  • It depends on what they are exposed to throughout life. Any woman that becomes a doctor can't smell anything after working with cadavers for a little bit...

  • I have a really bad sense of smell but my mom would always be able to smell things I couldn't.

    Maybe there's truth to this.

  • Yeah this definitely seems to be true. My girlfriend said I have a scent, that she can smell my skin. Since when does skin have a natural scent?
    And my mum once woke up from the smell of a fire on a hill far away, even when the fire got big and burned down half the island I couldn't smell anything

  • I've read similar things, so I suppose so. They also see even subtle differences in color better than guys too while guys have much better spatial awareness.
    I wouldn't know for sure, of course, as I haven't anything to compare the way I see and smell to.
