Olfactory Imagination
john_j_enright
If you ask me to remember a smell, I can, but it never seems super vivid.

However I sometimes dream a smell, quite vividly, and I know this because I sometimes wake from a dream, still "smelling" something, puzzled whether the scent is real or imaginary.

My brain in its dreams
Works better it seems
Than when it's awake
And I consciously make
Requests to re-smell
A scent I know well.

Smell doesn't connect to the verbal centers of the brain the way sight and hearing do.
