Biological Conflicts: scent conflict of “not being able to smell something or someone” or, the opposite, “not wanting to smell something or someone”.
The Scent Constellation presents as olfactory hallucinations or phantosmia (compare with hyperosmia, an increased sensitivity to smell).
A person in this constellation smells an odor, usually unpleasant, that is not present in the physical environment. The purpose of the hallucination is to be a warning in association with a smell or stench that was present when the scent conflicts first occurred (compare with auditory hallucinations and visual hallucinations). The olfactory hallucination could be the odor of a certain chemical or something that smells burned, smoky, rancid, exceedingly sweet, foul, spoiled, fecal, rotten, or putrefied (cacosmia), depending on the original conflict situation. This is why the phantom smell varies from person to person.
