How do you smell?

Stumbled across this in my reading this morning. Honestly couldn't say I had ever noticed it before . . . but I thought it was an excellent metaphor.

2 Cor 2:14-16 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowldge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. to the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?

Who smells you . . . and how do you smell to them? Maybe those folks who seem to wrinkle their noses every time you come by smell death . . . and maybe that's an indicator that they need the life we can offer them.
