TO HEAR, TO TOUCH, TO SEE, TO TASTE, TO SMELL:
Yesterday I was talking about the sense of smell and my eyes lit up when a client talked about the smell of freshly brewing coffee. This is one of the smells I adore the most. I also like the smell of cut grass, toast, and orange marmalade.
What are your favourite smells? Perfume, flowers, chocolate…?
The word smell is used in a lot of British Idioms and expressions, for example:
- smell fishy: means to seem suspicious. This new contract smells fishy
- smell to high heaven: means to smell very bad. That chicken farm smells to high heaven.
