Sentir bien

Could you say "je sens bien" to express "I have a good sense of smell"?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Using 'sentir bon' and 'se sentir bien'"

Bonjour Tom !

Technically you could indeed, though it wouldn't be a very natural way to say this :)
As a native speaker, I'd rather say:
J'ai un bon odorat.
I have a good sense of smell.
Je sens bien can also mean I feel well, in a tactile sense:
Tu le sens ?
Do you feel it?
I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !
