    Default Is your sense of smell diminished when you're hungover?

    I've been noticing recently since getting into fragrances that when I'm particularly hungover my sense of smell is definitely less good than normal. A couple of times I've tried sampling stuff when I'm hungover, and I've concluded that it can actually be a waste of the sample to do this. I'm curious, do other BNers find this as well?

    I haven't noticed it in my case.

    I havent really tried to smell fragrances when hungover, but I would say when I am hungover all my senses seem to be dulled. Everything has slowed down and of course it's hard to concentrate on anything else apart from the room spinning. It wouldnt surprise me if the nose is also affected when hungover

    Not when I'm necessarily hungover, but I did notice something else quite similar

    Whenever I suffer from strong headaches (not necessarily due to hangovers, most likely because of sever colds,
    allergies, stress-related, prolonged insomnia etc.) indeed olfactory fatigues, as well as a pronounced intolerance/idiosyncrasy
    towards ANY fragrance kick in much sooner and last longer
