Why would a sneeze smell like honey?
« on: 12/03/2012 09:07:01 »
Joe Standring asked the Naked Scientists:
Sometimes when I sneeze I smell honey from fine particles released into the air and other people can smell a strong smell of honey from across the room. This is not a temporary condition, it has gone on for years. I've looked for answers on the internet, but have found none, only other people making the same claim as me but with no explanation. please help me solve this strange phenomenon.

P.S. I have also smelt this same scent coming from some of my dog's sneezes.

What do you think?
