The olfactory area of the nose is getting atrophied I suppose (that means the area which senses smell in the nose is getting thinned out). This is one of the common health problems in your age. You need to consume lots of fresh fruits and vegetables as the sensory area needs vitamins for regeneration. Any more doubts you are welcome.
