"Itís the last thing you want to hear- you donít want to smell anything"
Itís the last thing you want to hear- you donít want to smell anything, because if you smell anything it would be to do with the air, which means that the air you would breathe would be then tainted, so no. The air that you breathe is like Swiss mountain air, you know, itís filtered and really pure. So anything which has got taint of a smell to it would be the air. But underneath the water, no, your nose is all enclosed with the mask, so you canít smell anything.
