Smell

At times you may experience the sense of smell in your dreams.

The smell could be environmental.

If there is a strong smell in your sleeping environment, you may perceive it and incorporate it into your dream.

Otherwise, the smell in your dreams is triggered by a memory.

You may be associating your dream experience with a pleasant or unpleasant order.

For example, if you are dreaming about your mother, you may smell the aroma of a food she once cooked.

The smell may trigger emotions and reflect the general quality of the experience in your dream.

To smell something in your dream, indicates your past experiences and feelings with that particular smell.

Your dream is trying to convey a feeling by associating it with a familiar smell or scent.

Alternatively, the scent may be part of your real environment which you have incorporated into your dream.

For a bad smell, see “Smelly”.
