Odor complaints are one of the most challenging and frustrating situations an investigator may face. Not only are odors extremely subjective, but individuals often experience them differently. Many chemical substances do not have a noticeable odor which limits use of the odor as a diagnostic tool. Odor descriptions and thresholds vary widely and few publicly available listing agree. In addition, odor thresholds are usually far below recommended exposure limits, further complicating the final use or interpretation of the data.
