    Considering that we humans can sense over 1 trillion odours, I'm sure there are many things that make us all gag, such as walking into an unflushed toilet.

    However, I'm sure we all have our own unique smells that make us gag.

    Mine is coriander! If I get even a whiff I'm gagging. I can't go near the stuff.
    People ask, "How can coriander make you gag?" - I have no idea.

    In addition, the smell of Durian makes me, amongst many others, gag. However, I do eat it. I hold my breath, insert, and it tastes delicious.

    What smell makes you gag?

    The three day old carcass of a gecko hidden somewhere in my house.

    My younger son's vomit.

    Raw sewage in stagnant water.

    I'll go with the gecko. 555

    An additional I'll admit to, and many will laugh but I wonder if anybody agrees with me?

    Cannabis. The smell of cannabis, even if blowing downwind, makes me wretch. I can smell it a mile off.

    You must have a real problem with that in Thailand🙂 One thing that made me gag was when my son Kevin was about 9 months old and our daughter Danielle held him up in the air when we were at a campground and he puked right into her mouth. OMG.

    Though there are certainly a number of 'odours' which are offensive to the human olfactory sense, none have ever 'made me gag'. In contrast, there are a few food tastes and textures I do avoid [chemical rich prepared foods, fatty meats and Tripe]. One near exception was the cleaning of the Colostomy Device on the man in the bed next to mine; I literally placed the pillow over my face until the RN Dressing Specialist had finished the process and sprayed the two bedded hospital room. Next day, sonhouse, you and I resumed our chess game on RHP. If my moves were s... now you know the reason why. lol

    Just the thought of the following makes me feel a bit queasy:
    A few years ago, whilst in the Air Force, a mate of mine got involved in a heavy drinking session in an outdoor bar in Hong Kong. It degenerated into a 'hey, bet you won't eat that' game. Contents of ashtrays, etc. Not to be outdone, my mate scooped up about a pint of cockroaches, cicadas etc that had settled onto a fluorescent light tube, and wolfed the whole lot down. Yummy.
    Staggering back to the Sergeants' mess a little later, he stopped to throw up violently, to witness with some alarm some of the previously ingested cockroaches crawling off from the pile of puke, a little shaken but good as new.
    -Bet you can't beat that.
