MeSH {{{MeshNumber}}}

Hyperosmia is an increased ability to smell and thus having an increased sensitivity to odors - for example, being able to identify the perfume of the previous occupant of a chair. Some people possess it naturally (either through developed senses or increased training).


Association with physical illnessEdit

It is also seen in people with a number of physical illnesses such as cluster headaches, epilepsy migraines, and adrenal cortical insufficiency (Addison's Disease).

Psychedelic drugs such as LSD, psilocin, or 2C-B have been anecdotally shown to enhance smell.[citation needed]

It has also been associated with pregnancy in some women[citation needed]
