Of What Use Is Your Nose?

Why can’t I see smells? You can’t see smells because they’re invisible!

Smells are tiny particles that float in the air. Inside the top of your nose are sticky smell sensors. When you sniff something, the sensors collect the smell particles. They send messages to your brain, which tells you what you can smell.
