    Smile flavors

    This soda contains unnatural chemical flavors.
    Since scent/smell/odor/essence/fragrance are all synonyms of flavor, I wonder if I could substitute them for flavor here. Thanks.

    Re: flavors

    flavor is perceived through the mouth

    scent/smell/odor/essence/fragrance are perceived through the nose

    I don't think you can say they are synonymous.

    Thanks, Anglika.
    But my dictionary says they are all equivalent, and I doubted it. That's why I posted it to ask your opinions.

    Dictionaries vary a lot. Do you ever use this: OneLook Dictionary Search ??

    It gives access to a good range of options.
