    When people talk about the smell of death it's always the decomp smell. Think of roadkill on a hot day kind of smell. But most people don't know the smell of death before decomp really starts. It's very subtle, most people can't smell it, some can. It makes you queasy but not in a roadkill I'm gonna hurl kind of way. For the people who can, once it's smelled, it's never forgotten. :(
