|Subject: Wondering if any of you had this. Tue May 20, 2014 9:05 am|| |
I've asked a number of people, and so far only four people (myself included) have told me they have this. I was wondering if anyone here did.
I have this... I don't want to use the word "ability" because it doesn't really help me in any ways, but I have this thing. At random times, I'll get stuck, be it for a couple hours or a week, with something between a smell and a taste, but that doesn't smell or taste like anything I can identify. And even though I've never detected this sensation before, I somehow automatically link it to a certain point of my life, which could be broad or very specific. The smell and the memory are completely unrelated, though, except through this weird association. And when the smell-taste fades, I can't remember it until it happens again, but when it does I instantly recognize it. Kind of like déja vu. In some cases I'll forget I associated a memory with one at all, but then immediately remember the next time it shows up.
The closest smell-taste I can relate to any other smell/taste, and the one I remember the clearest, is my memory of the first level of BIONICLE: The Game, which sort of has the sensation of my Elementary School's chicken nuggets. Still, it's not an accurate description.
The other memories/times/places that I associate with a smell-taste that I can remember are: A portion of Homestuck's Act 5, the care house my little sister lived at, Legoland California and Hanako's path in Katawa Shoujo (which I first experienced the sensation of about a month ago).
The other people I've met who experienced this are the older of my younger brothers, a classmate I had in France named Leonard, and a person who happened upon my description of this when I asked about it on Yahoo Answers (back when I used it). The only possible explanation I got was kinesthesia, but I know that's not what it is.
So, can anyone else relate to this?

well a lot of what makes things taste a certain way comes from their smell so it's not unusual to have them linked. Both taste and smell can be registered with memories just like sounds, sights, and feelings. I can recall swimming in the ocean while both smelling and tasting sea water. It's hard to forget the taste of salty plankton
