Cold!

The common cold, yes i’m sure we’ve all had it; the run down feeling, the hoarse voice and yes the blocked nose.

A symptom of the common cold can be a temporary loss of taste and smell. I don’t know if it is just me but this has to be one of the worst scenarios when getting a cold; unable to smell your breakfast cooking, the fresh air outside, or even your favourite perfume. For me, not being able to smell all of these things can make me feel even more under the weather when ill!

I think when getting a cold and the possibility of temporarily losing your sense of smell really helps you appreciate your nose and scent even more. To be able to smell and appreciate the rich scents of the world is truly something we should never take for granted.
