Yazmin Salazar was born without being able to smell

How would you describe the smell of rain to someone who doesn’t smell anything?

Or a new coat of paint? Or the scent of a bouquet of roses?

For Yazmin Salazar, it is the husband who usually describes these smells to her. “It does my nose sometimes,” she says.

“He told me that the smell of honey is vibrant but comforting – similar to the feeling of sunlight on your skin when you dry after a swim.”
