Why do sneezes smell like honey?

Most people’s don’t… but a significant
minority do report a sweet or floral smell
when they sneeze. This could be the smell
of ketones from your bloodstream, which
might be a sign of diabetes. But it is much
more likely to be the cocktail of chemicals
produced by the bacteria living in your
sinuses or ears. Be grateful that yours
smell of honey – some people’s sinus
bacteria give them the sneeze equivalent
of halitosis.
