blood does have a smell, but it obtains that smell once its exposed to air. when ur blood is in ur body, its considered sterile. thats why dry blood has a much odor than fresh new blood seeping through a wound

Yes,it has a coppery metallic smell but I don't think everyone can smell blood.But in large amounts it has a cloying sweet smell that will cause you to gag but it does take large amounts.

Yes, it smells like Iron. Its almost the same as the taste of it. If you have ever bitten the inside of your lip, thats darn close to the smell of it.

If you have ever been around some one who has bled to death, you could smell it!

As an ex-medic in the military I've smelt it several times. It is a sweet, musky, humid smell when someone has bled out!

Not a smell you want to smell again ever in your life!
