Lucky you: Such sensitive smell, if broad spectrum, allows for you to detect things, good and bad - in your life. Better chefs chefs, for instance, have such a good sense of smell. An it makes you a better candidate for such training if that interests you. There are actually are a few other occupations where this would be sought after such as working for the companies that make perfume.
