However we do use a number of adjectives before the word smell, as a visit to any thesaurus will quickly show. Pungent, acrid, metallic (often in ref to blood), pleasant, flowery, etc.
True, but do not these words describe the effect of the smell, not the smell itself? I gather that's the gist of the piece.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
