At least 10 years ago I noticed that I was no longer smelling smoke or other odors that I always was able to smell in the past. I can smell smoke if it's dense enough but most other people will detect the odor of smoke when I can't nowadays --and this goes for other odors as well.  Maybe this diminished sense of smell has some connection to MS. The abstract is from Multiple Sclerosis Journal (February 1, 2019; first published November 29, 2017) and is entitled "Change of olfactory function as a marker of inflammatory activity and disability progression in MS":

There is mention of a "Sniffin' Sticks" test. More about it here:
