This story is a bit strange, but we'll see if any of you have had any similar experiences. My wife and I moved into our current home a few years ago. The second summer we lived here, I began to regularly experience what I would call a strong "old man smell" in sections of the first floor of our home. The smell was always highly-localized (in no more than a three-foot by three-foot area), and would be found in all sorts of different locations of the first floor, but never in more than one place at a time. My wife always told me that it must have just been some random smells from an old house or a smell from outside that got in through an open window. However, the smell was HIGHLY localized (you wouldn't smell anything and then BAM, you would walk through a small area with a very strong odor). I told my wife "I think it is one of the former owners of the home..."
After doing a bit of research, we learned that a former owner of our home lived out his final years of the home bound to a wheelchair on the first floor, renting out the upper floor to other tenants. I of course have no way of proving it, but I am convinced that it was his spirit. It was the first and only time I think I have ever "smelled" a presence, so I am curious to learn if anyone else out there has ever had a similar type of experience. Thanks!
