    People can smell because the same way everything else can most of our senses of smell are increadibly weak

    Different odours are due to differently shaped molecules in the air we breathe. The molecules dissolve in the mucus secreted by glands within the nose, which is in contact with olfactory nerve endings.

    Humans depend much less on smell than on the other senses; hence our sense of smell is not as well developed as that of other animals such as dogs, which use it a lot.
