sentir bon

sentir bon

When I see the sentence, She smells good, does it mean she smells good (because she doesn't have a cold and her nose is working normally) or it is because she just took a bath (and she doesn't stink?).  Do both these meanings work for Elle sent bon?

Hi Vicky,

This has been asked before in the Q&A at the bottom of the lesson.

But just to reiterate it can only mean -

She smells nice

maybe you like the scent of her perfume.

To say she has a good sense of smell you would say -

Elle a un bon odorat

Bonne continuation!
