    Exercise (gotta break a sweat and start deep breathing) is the most dramatic improvement. You'll notice it even before your done with your workout. Fasting is another way. I fast twice a week for 24 hours each time. After about 18 hours your body goes into survival (hunting) mode and you'll breath better and smell pretty much anything in your environment. Climate also has a lot to do with it. If your in a colder climate or have allergies, the mucus can block the smell receptors. Finally, when you sniff take short quick sniffs. Animals detect scent this way.

    I don't think that's an option for me. My body would go into death mode.

    When on certain antibiotics I became quite sensitive to scents, but not in a good way. So many things nauseated me.

    When I spent long periods unable to eat (due to illness) I became very sensitive to smells, to the extent that I could tell what kinds of vegetables my mum was cutting/peeling at the other end of the house, but I wouldn't really recommend fasting from a health perspective.

    Smoking does dull sense of smell and taste. The suggestion of breathing fresh air and reducing scented cleaning products, etc. is a good one.

    Ugh...you and me both. It's such a vile habit. But I do love it still. I I quit once for 1 year. But then picked it up again. Cold turkey too. You have to really want to quit, and I don't want to right now.

    As far as how to heighten your sense of smell, I don't know. But you could maybe educated yourself on what some of the more popular ingredients are so that you can more easily detect them.
    Smell an iris, some vetiver etc etc.
