Much of modern day food is cooked with aromatic herbs and

spices. This give out essential oils and other substances when

heated and we can smell them.

The human nose can smell food cooking, however, there are

distance situations that impede its sense of smell. Also nasal

colds can at times cause the sense of smell to be curtailed.

Generally speaking, animals have a better sense of smell then

humans. Dogs are a primary example of this.
