    I can relate to people who love the smell and taste of dust, actually, but let’s get on with it, shall we?
    Dust has a very dry, powder-y smell to it, kind of like a new house, but less potent. I find that it has a slight hint of sweetness accompanying the other tastes, but that might just be me.The taste is similar to the scent.There really is no other good way to describe it.
