Loss of sense of smell, or anosmia, has a significant impact on quality of life. Typically it affects not only our ability to smell (both good and bad odours) but impairs our ability to detect flavours. Our sense of taste is actually pretty basic – not much more that sweet, sour, salty, bitter or ‘meaty’ (called umami) and this will often be unaffected, although some people report this can also be altered.
