Harrison, I've broken my nose 7 times and sometimes it can be detrimental to what you smell. Go to a doctor and they will be able to tell what you can and can't do to help your nose. I've found I have good days and o.k. days w/ the honker. Don't look at it as a handicap. You can train your nose to pick up the little stuff, just as a person can train their palate. My rule of thumb if the nose is not at its prime that day then don't focus your time on the stuff that relates to the nose. Don't know if that makes any sense.
