I think I have lost the sense of smell. I am not able to smell any fragrances or foul smells until they are way too strong.

You need to get a CT SCAN of your nose to evaluate the reasons for your lack of smell sensation. This will help your ENT Surgeon yo diagnose your problem and plan the corrective procedure to heal the same.

this condition is called as anosmia. it can be due to many reasons. most common reasons are nasal allergy, nasal polyp, head injury, post viral infection and many times there won't be any identifiable reasons.. very rarely tumors involving smell sensory are of brain also can produce this problem
