Loss of smell (not sense of smell)

Has anyone noticed that the person they live with who has Parkinson’s no longer has the same pheromones? Since diagnosis and starting drugs my husband does not really smell of anything. I really miss his smell. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be to do with the disease or the drugs?

Interesting. I hadn’t really thought about this but asked my husband (I’m the one with PD). He says I smell different from how I used to. He’s not much interested in sex these days and I’d assumed it was him but now I’m wondering if it’s me. I think we need to explore this more.

Oh, and I don’t think it can be the drugs as he says he noticed it before I was even diagnosed.
