the loss of scenses and memory

disappeared I found an article on what it is like to lose smell, It’s called Anosmia. If you have Anosmia, You can’t smell your grandma’s pie, and the pie tastes flavorless. Sometimes, People with Anosmia, even experience distortions of smell, this is called Parosmia, they are typically unpleasant smells.

How would this effect your memory? Not that much but you would not be able to fell comfort with a blanket.
