Smells don't bother me much, but when they do occasionally test me I chew strong mint gum. ;)

((HUGS)) you eventually get used to most of it.

Hints: carry hauls cough drops and pop one in your mouth. Get a small jar of Vicks vaporub and swipe some on your upper lip right by your nares. I carry a pocket sized spray can of Ozium....kills everything
