By Where is it coming from?! - United States - Brightwood
Today, I returned home after a four day weekend at my parents' house. Upon entering by the front door, a horrid stench assaulted my nose. Hours later I still cannot find the source of the foul odor. I'm starting to wonder if this is how it's always smelled without my knowing. FML

Most likely the stench is new because the mind only "resets" it's smells after about 5 minutes of no contact with the odors. Unless OP never left his house ever before that point, the stench is fresh.

22, not necessarily. Every house has a different smell to it, but you don't usually notice the smell of your own house. You leave in the morning for work, then come home 9 hours later, you will still most likely not smell it.

This is the best advice. I have one friend whose house smells like Asian food and one whose house has an overpowering aroma of burning wood and bacon - neither of them notice that they smell like their house 24/7, much less the fact that their house has a 'smell'

I bet something died in the walls. I would open windows, take out all trash that you can find, check the kitchen cupboards and see if the smell is still there. Maybe invite a friend to help investigate. Good luck.

All houses have their own smell. So maybe you need to burn some candles, melt some wax, spray something...? If you're a clean person then perhaps something died, like a mouse or something, under the fridge, or under the stove or maybe inside the walls.
