    Arrow flavour

    Dictionary meaning of the word "flavour/flavor" is taste. But I have read/heard many contexts where the meaning refers to smell. Can this word also be used to connote smell.

    I can't think of a context where that would be possible. Both flavour and taste rely on our sense of smell but they're not the same thing.

    Taste = flavour
    Smell = fragrance
