I end up with strong smells of dog poop. Then I start searching for it but there’s is nothing.
I used to smell sour milk too with it no where to be seen

The only time I had olfactory hallucinations was when I smoked weed and got psychotic. Smelled bread, gasoline, plastic, burnt stuff, weed, etc They were olfactory hallucinations.

I’ve had the smell of burning in the shower. Clearly I don’t want to get clean!

Same! At first I thought something died and went bad in the walls (my last place had a big mouse problem) but then I was smelling it everywhere, like even outdoors

I’ve had the smell hallucinations since the beginning. Good topic. TW. My first was a smell of smoke I thought was my spirit on fire. It was really horrible and contributed to my first hospitalization. Other smells were sweetness and a filthy smell that was enjoyable. I’ve heard religious people talk about these smells, one was St Paul. I read a book on prayer that said to not get side tracked by smells and visions. Did you know you can even have tactile hallucinations?
