The stench of ghost
hunting: Discerning what all the paranormal stink
is all about!
by Lisa Lee Harp Waugh
Does Being Dead Smell Like?
Many people have have had
paranormal encounters through out the generations
of this world where a ghost or it's presences
is noted by a odor. Most recently Haunted
America Tours even featured an article about
A ghost hunter Yvonne
Some people claim to smell
perfume or flowers or cigar smoke, things
like that, when a real ghost is near. In the
Photo above Yvonne Brown tells fellow Ghost
Hunter Raul John Gonzalez to sniff the air
for the presence of a ghost that she can smell.
a Florida Resident who can smell
when ghosts where around her. This phenomena
has been reported by many who search for the
lost souls of the dead in the paranormal zone.
In Browns view ghosts have various odors associated
with them and no to specters or spooks smell
the same. In interviewing Brown she went on
to tell me that ghostly smells and scents
or lIke fingerprints (no two or the same).
Yvonne Brown asked me did I find others that
had her ability and what could I share with
her. Can you smell a real ghost ... too? This
question makes me wonder to myself what Qualities
in person or a ghost causes the actions of
this very real paranormal phenomena to happen.
Brown ghosts exhibit strange mixtures of scents.
She has smelled ghosts that odors defy explanation.
she tells me that the odors or very clear
and one odor might be more prominent. she
often likes the smells as the taste of what
a ghosts personal life or qualities were.
Odor combinations are at the root she states.
"I recently smelled a ghost that smelled
like rubbing alcohol, Cabbage and Ben Gay".
" I also have investigated a ghost that
smelled like cow manure, new plastic and fresh
cut grass." Brown has also told me that
a fellow Ghost Hunter Raul John Gonzalez she
met in Little Havana, that smells ghosts also.
And that could only smell the cabbage smell.
This leads me to believe that some only smell
ghost in degrees.
asked Brown and Gonzales do all ghost have
such putrefied smells? In most cases Brown
said yes to her at least. Possibly because
I am just me and that's how I smell them.
She also believes that animals such as dogs
and snakes can smell a ghosts presence.
who says he has been detecting the presence
of spirits since he was 8 or 9 years old believes
the same. In my Cuban culture says Gonzalez
Many odors are associated with locations and
our voodoo spirits. He believes if a person
in life lived or worked in an area where specific
odors were present then that's what clings
to the ghosts. " I think life is a stink
we can't get away from even in death!"
says Gonzalez, " When all matter breaks
down it lets off gases that smell." "
I think these things cling to a real ghosts,
And it something that makes them visible to
us using one sences that we all have."
including most mammals and reptiles, have
two distinct and segregated olfactory systems:
a main olfactory system, which detects volatile
stimuli, and an accessory olfactory system,
which detects fluid-phase stimuli. Behavioral
evidence suggests that these fluid-phase stimuli
often function as pheromones, although pheromones
can also be detected by the main olfactory
system. In the accessory olfactory system,
stimuli are detected by the vomeronasal organ,
located in the vomer, between the nose and
the mouth. Snakes use it to smell prey, sticking
their tongue out and touching it to the organ.
Some mammals make a face called flehmen to
direct air to this organ.
Olifactional Residual Haunting: A term used
to describe a ghost that is trapped in a continuous
loop that has a particular smell associated
with them. Another theory is that an event
left a psychic impression on an area and some
people witness a replay of that scene or smell.
Pleasant or not the smell is that of what
most claim is a real ghosts showing it is
famous ghosts have been known for their fragrances
associated with their hauntings. Perfumes,
food smells, or unnatural these odors are
often encountered at the sites where they
haunt. A group in California, The Ghost Hunter
of Para- Haunt research recently went hunting
for Marilyn Monroe's ghost. They said they
encountered the smell of roses and disinfectant.
Their group psychic medium Mary Simmons said
that ghosts she has encountered recently are
more fragrant when their more famous. In her
opinion the ghosts that smell the best are
the most sought after. She also told me that
when hunting for the ghost of james dean she
could smell a sexy manly smell of men's cologne.
And when searching for the ghost of John Belushi
she encountered the heavy odor of almonds
and chewing gum.
Simmons says she does not really know. Her
explanation is that this is what the particular
spirits that haunted the location wanted her
Merchant a ghost hunter from the UK tells
me that the ghost of Henry VIII (28 June 1491
– 28 January 1547) King of England,
smells like burning parchment paper, and wax
and his wives each have distinctively different
his mistress Elizabeth Blount (usually referred
to as Bessie) and Mary Boleyn (Anne's sister).
Elizabeth Blount gave birth to Henry's illegitimate
son, Henry FitzRoy. The young boy was made
Duke of Richmond in June 1525 in what some
thought was one step on the path to legitimatizing
him. In 1533, he married Mary Howard, Anne
Boleyn's first cousin, but died only three
years later without any successors. At the
time of FitzRoy's death, the king was trying
to get a law passed that would allow his otherwise
illegitimate son to become king.
Mary Boleyn was the sister of Anne Boleyn.
She is thought to have been his mistress at
some point between 1519 and 1526. Historians
have speculated that Mary Boleyn's two children,
Catherine and Henry were fathered by Henry,
but this has never been proven and the King
never acknowledged them as he did Henry Fitzroy.
"Bolysyn's Ghostly smell is burning parchment
just like the kings and lilacs." Says
Merchant, "Threre are different mediums
that I have found have all confirmed this
to me and my group. "Anne of Cleves smells
like a dark damp cellar, Jane Seymour smells
lie a glorious summer morning in spring,"
"I'm sure when other paranormal groups
get a few more Clairalience (smelling) or
Clair-Olfacte members more evidence to the
fact that lf real ghosts give off an odor
will become more recognized" states Merchant.
encounters of the 5th kind!
From my current
research I am finding that paranormal encounters
have more to do with the five senses then
I originally believed. Senses are the physiological
methods of perception. The senses and their
operation, classification, and theory are
overlapping topics studied by a variety of
fields, most notably neuroscience, cognitive
psychology (or cognitive science), and philosophy
of perception. The nervous system has a specific
sensory system, or organ, dedicated to each
Each of them
I believe now can show you what a ghosts or
the experience is all about if you note it
in your report as you encounter the spirit.
Smell or olfaction
is the other "chemical" sense. Unlike
taste, there are hundreds of olfactory receptors,
each binding to a particular molecular feature.
Odor molecules possess a variety of features
and thus excite specific receptors more or
less strongly. This combination of excitatory
signals from different receptors makes up
what we perceive as the molecule's smell.
In the brain, olfaction is processed by the
olfactory system. Olfactory receptor neurons
in the nose differ from most other neurons
in that they die and regenerate on a regular
basis. The inability to smell is called anosmia.
species, dogs have a much keener sense of
smell than humans, although the mechanism
is similar. Insects have olfactory receptors
on their antennae.
Cats have the ability to see in the dark due
to muscles surrounding their irises to contract
and expand pupils as well as the tapetum lucidum,
a reflective membrane that optimizes the image.
Pitvipers, pythons and some boas have organs
that allow them to detect infrared light,
such that these snakes are able to sense the
body heat of their prey. The common vampire
bat may also have an infrared sensor on its
nose. Infrared senses are, however, just sight
in a different light frequency range. It has
been found that birds and some other animals
are tetrachromats and have the ability to
see in the ultraviolet down to 300 nanometers.
Bees are also able to see in the ultraviolet.
Not analogous to human senses
In addition, some animals have senses that
humans do not, including the following:
Electroception (or "electroreception"),
the most significant of the non-human senses,
is the ability to detect electric fields.
Several species of fish, sharks and rays have
the capacity to sense changes in electric
fields in their immediate vicinity. Some fish
passively sense changing nearby electric fields;
some generate their own weak electric fields,
and sense the pattern of field potentials
over their body surface; and some use these
electric field generating and sensing capacities
for social communication. The mechanisms by
which electroceptive fish construct a spatial
representation from very small differences
in field potentials involve comparisons of
spike latencies from different parts of the
The only order of mammals that is known to
demonstrate electroception is the monotreme
order. Among these mammals, the platypus has
the most acute sense of electroception.
Body modification enthusiasts have experimented
with magnetic implants to attempt to replicate
this sense, however in general humans (and
probably other mammals) can detect electric
fields only indirectly by detecting the effect
they have on hairs. An electrically charged
balloon, for instance, will exert a force
on human arm hairs, which can be felt through
tactition and identified as coming from a
static charge (and not from wind or the like).
This is however not electroception as it is
a post-sensory cognitive action.
Echolocation is the ability to determine
orientation to other objects through interpretation
of reflected sound (like sonar). Bats and
cetaceans are noted for this ability, though
some other animals use it, as well. It is
most often used to navigate through poor lighting
conditions or to identify and track prey.
There is currently an uncertainty whether
this is simply an extremely developed post-sensory
interpretation of auditory perceptions or
it actually constitutes a separate sense.
Resolution of the issue will require brain
scans of animals while they actually perform
echolocation, a task that has proven difficult
in practice. Blind people report they are
able to navigate by interpreting reflected
sounds (esp. their own footsteps), a phenomenon
which is known as Human echolocation.
Magnetoception (or "magnetoreception")
is the ability to detect fluctuations in magnetic
fields and is most commonly observed in birds,
though it has also been observed in insects
such as bees. Although there is no dispute
that this sense exists in many avians (it
is essential to the navigational abilities
of migratory birds), it is not a well-understood
phenomenon. There is experimental and physical
evidence to suggest this sense exists in a
weak form in humans.
Magnetotactic bacteria build miniature magnets
inside themselves and use them to determine
their orientation relative to the Earth's
Pressure detection uses the lateral line,
which is a pressure-sensing system of hairs
found in fish and some aquatic amphibians.
It is used primarily for navigation, hunting,
and schooling. Humans have a basic relative-pressure
detection ability when eustachian tube(s)
are blocked, as demonstrated in the ear's
response to changes in altitude.
Polarized light direction / detection is
used by bees to orient themselves, especially
on cloudy days. Cuttlefish can also perceive
the polarization of light.
I believe this is why so many Ghost hunting
groups in California and the north east have
taken to brining pets along with them.
