    It doesn't sound natural to me.

    One can have an eye, ear and possibly nose for detail, but, IMO, only a sense of detail. This may be just a personal feeling.

    a false sense of security
    in the literal sense of the word
    in every sense of the word
    a sense of guilt
    a sense of proportion
    a sense of humor
    a sense of responsibility
    a sense of beauty
    but
    a feeling for the beautiful
