Olfaction is the sense of smell.

I picked this up from this article on Wikipedia which states:

Sensory Integration Dysfunction is a neurological disorder causing difficulties with processing information from the five classic senses (vision, auditory, touch, olfaction, and taste)

So how is your olfaction today?  Generally mine is pretty bad, but your milage may vary.

Probably not a word you'd use lots, but there you are :-)

One of my favourites is defenestrate - the act of throwing someone out a window (!). Try it on your workmates, eg "Watch it or I will defenestrate you". They usually imagine something worse
