Other questions about "Smell"

Q: uncomfortable smell does this sound natural?
A: It is grammatically correct but would carry an uncommon meaning. More often used are: - bad smell [most common] - unpleasant smell [very common; I stole from ] - vile smell [very, very bad smell] An "uncomfortable smell" would simply be a fragrance you don't like being around. For something like dog droppings, you would most often use another word, but you could say uncomfortable. More likely it would be something like the brand of perfume your ex-girlfriend uses. You don't like being around it any more.
Q: I could smell the scent of dirt, animals and hay wafted in the air. does this sound natural?
A: It will make sense if you use "wafting" instead of "wafted". "animals and hay wafted in the air" sounds as if there are animals and hay floating in the sky... I don't think this is what you mean! Instead you could say: "I could smell the scent of dirt, animals and hay wafting in the air." That would make more sense :)
