Do You Smell What I Smell? The Psychic Sense of Clairolfactance

Clairalience is the psychic sense of smelling, (also known as clairescence). A person with this form of extra-sensory perception is able to smell energy or gain psychic knowledge through the physical sense of smell. Most of the time, they are the only person in a group/space who is able to smell the etheric fragrance.

The gift of clairolfaction or clairolfactance can be useful for discerning spirits. One may "smell a skunk" so to speak or sense an unpleasant odor coming from a person who has detrimental energy in their field or sickness in their body. But, it is not just the foul odor of contamination that can be sensed by those who have this ability. Some people have reported smelling roses, lilacs, or other heavenly fragrances associated with angels when a loved one passes. My husband and I are both able to smell cigarette smoke when the spirit of a particular "deceased" loved one visits our home.

Sometimes this ability is referred to as claireolfactory or claireolfactant because it is believed that the olfactory nerve is involved in perceiving these astral smells. Because spasms in the temporal lobe of the brain can cause phantom smells (phantosmia) or smell disorders, a doctor may be needed to rule out any serious underlying disorders that may be causing the detected smell (especially if the smell hallucinations are interrupting your quality of life or if you have had a head injury).

I remember being able to smell my own soul essence when I was in my twenties and thirties. I missed being able to smell this beautiful aroma after I had a significant soul shift in 1999. Soon the ability to tap into my personal soul signature stopped. In 2011, the heavenly fragrance returned for twelve days, during which I was in a state of bliss. I knew that a 9th dimensional future version of my soul self or my natal soul had returned to be integrated with the soul in this incarnation. I wrote about these encounters in my book, Walk-ins Among Us ~ Open Your Personal Portal to Cosmic Awareness.

On December 4, 2013 the psychic smell returned for nine days. I could smell it simultaneously with "earthly" smells that everyone could sense. I could even put on perfume and not be able to smell that manufactured aroma after a short while; yet, the heavenly essence would rise above other smells such as food, pet/people odors, car exhaust, or lotions. The fragrance went with me everywhere I went—I smelled it in my car, while shopping in stores, and even in the shower. If I spent time in a particular room of my house, I could smell it even stronger and it lasted even after I left the room and came back.

The best way to determine what message the scent is offering is to ask a few questions:

  • With who (living or deceased including animals) or what do you associate this scent? 
  • What memory does the smell bring forth? 
  • When you ask your guides what this smell means what is the first thing that pops into your mind?

I would like to hear from others who have this ability and know what you have smelled and how you have used this spiritual gift as a guidance tool on your spiritual journey.

Many people have experienced psychic smell and the ability seems to be increasing. Please read the comments others have posted here. You may find exactly what you are looking for!

What an amazing story of compassion and following your guidance. I sense that you have an angel around you.

@Anonymous, I hope this reply reaches you. I often smell sage or incense for a day or more after I have used it in my home--even in rooms where it was not lit or when I leave home. To me, this is an indication that the energy of the plant is still with me. I am carrying the vibration of that herb or spice.

Hi my cousin past away last week and the day before his funeral I kept getting the smell of the inscence that's shook over a coffin. Since then every so often I get the same scent any idea what this could mean? X

I've had a few experiences with scents in my time. Once I was in the forest in Grande Prairie with my then boyfriend and his sister. There was nothing around us but trees and wilderness. The sister & I were in the middle of making a small firepit and were gathering kindling and small twigs. Suddenly it was as though I had my face buried in a bouquet of flowers, the scent was so strong! I asked Holly if she'd just sprayed perfume or something and she replied she hadn't. At the same time the scent hit me, the overwhelming feeling of love for my boyfriend and his sister overcame me...so strong I fought back tears. It was all over within a couple minutes but was very profound. The only explanation I could come up with was that we were visited by their mother who had passed on years before.

I wonder if it is an angel with you.

My experience with that smell goes and comes as well. But if i had to smell it all the time it would make me nauseated. I smell it in funeral homes, places where people has died. And sometimes just random.. Its like a spirit presence of some kind.

Sometimes smells are triggered in our olfactory nerve and we have random smells. I'm not sure what it suggests for any particular person.
