This week's theme is Smell (breathe, anything else to do with the nose's functions).

Here's mine from Satan's Circus: Murder, Vice, Police Corruption, and New York's Trial of the Century by Mike Dash:

It of the gloomiest structures in the world....Tier on tier it rises above a huge central rotunda, rimmed with dim mezzanines and corridors, and crowned by a glass roof encrusted with soot, through which filters a soiled and viscous light. The air is rancid with garlic, stale cigar smoke, sweat and the odor of the prisoners' lunch.
