Strange smell of watermelon

Recommended Posts

Alissa

My husband and I are in bed settling down for the night. As usual, I'm drinking my glass of milk when out of no where I get a whiff of watermelon! It has never happened before. I've been trying to google different things trying to fingure out what it could be but I can't find anything. I feel like I'm going crazy! When I smelled it I kept telling my husband "I smell watermelon! Do you smell it?" And he said no. Any answers/opinions would help. Thank you in advance!

New lotion or shampoo? Fabric softener? Something from outside? Some residue in the glass?  So many possibilities.

SecretSanta, no. Nothing new. We live on the water and no crops or gardens around.

If it keeps happening I recommend making an appointment with your doctor. Could be medical.

I am not able to imagine smell of watermelon.

It's not that uncommon, especially as you get older, for 'phantom' smells to happen.  Don't worry about it, unless it is accompanied with loss of the ability to detect smells, or a particular smell happens often.  If it does, your friendly GP/doctor can look up the chemical compounds that cause the watermelon smell  and then see if they are involved with any body chemistry issues or medical conditions you might have.

I had it happen with Strawberry body spray, a few years back only once it happened. I'm the only female in my home and had nothing fake Strawberry scented at the time.

Watermelon flavoured fart is a pretty good talent...

So the other day, my fiance and I also just started smelling watermelon. Mostly on ourselves. We can't figure out what the scent is or where it's coming from. At first we thought it was just on me, and getting on him from me. Then (because we currently live apart) I discussed that I'd been smelling that watermelon smell a lot more lately, and it's not him. He tells me he's still smelling it too, so it's both of us? What is happening?

Do you have a small living space?

Could it have been your husband? That'd make him not smelling anything more reasonable

I think it is an old wives tale, but I have heard before that if you suddenly smell watermelon, there is a poisonous snake nearby.
