    Are you able to go for a little walk. It's windy out there and it smells very much of autumn.......

    Do you have any oblas oil? Maybe put a little on a tissue and keep it close by so that you will be distracted by that smell and not the other.

    Hey Klaire.  Try not to worry about smells.  do you know there were times a while ago when I would smell things that were not there.  But it all went away.  I think our mind plays silly tricks on us sometimes. Pure lavendar smells nice.  I sprinkle some on my pillow at night to sooth me, perhaps some on a tissue will help.

    Find something that smells nice and mask the smell you cannot forget.
