However, our smell receptors are strong enough to let us know about smell of things that are in close proximity to us. And has given rise to our desire to smell nice to other people. Though we have been utilizing whatever nature had to offer in terms of fragrances and perfumes to make our living spaces and even ourselves smell better.
