Thanks for the details. I would like to say that this seems to be a smell disorder which need to be have evaluation done, few important possibilities which should be investigated such as nasal polyps, infection or inflammatory disorders of the nasal passages, hormonal disturbances, neurological manifestations, psychological causes. I will highly advise to see your physician for examination & tests. You may require to see ENT (ear, nose & throat) doctor for thorough examination & ENT doctor is specialist in these issues to start with. Let me know if you have any further question. Best wishes.
