To tell you the truth, I was absolutely shocked to find an enormous
amount of posts all over the internet of people smelling phantom
It is very annoying to say the least. The good part is, it does go
away after some days or some weeks. Months will pass and I don't
smell it and then there it is again. It is a very heavy nauseating
I continue to research it from time to time and I found a post of
a woman stating she figured it out......she says it is her dead
grandmother visiting her.
Oh, thank heavens!!!! I thought I was the only one!! I used to smoke 3 packs a day and wanted to quit but couldn't even though I tried 6 times over the years. I used to joke that the only time it didn't bother me not to smoke was when I was in the hospital. Little did I know I would be forced to quit when hospitalized for 3 weeks. That cured me! (That was almost 5 years ago).
Anyway, ever since then, ever so often, I smell cigarette smoke in the house. My mom was a heavy smoker until she died as was my husband's mother. His mother was also a heavy patchoulli user (keep insects away). Every so often, I would get a whiff of patchoulli in the new house (I didn't use it) and after mom died, cigarette smoke (she lived with us for some years).
i still get whiffs of both but not as often as before. His mother has been gone 35 years now and my mom 16 years.
So, you're not alone in this. To me, it says that they're watching over us.
