Hep.... Just one precision.... Some very unusual metals like Osmium and Ruthenium do form volatile tetroxides who do have a smell.... And they're just below iron, in the same column of the periodic table, those transition metals which can theoretically reach +VIII oxidization state. Iron could be expected to forme the volatile FeO4, but I suspect this may be more oxidizing than oxygen... so much for stability. Just for the sake of it, osmium is a Greek word which means smelly :p Don't ever smell osmium or ruthenium tetroxide. This may be the last thing you smell, since it's extremely corrosive to living tissue due to the high oxidation potential, and it will eat the crap out of anything organic. Think gaseous mnganese heptoxide.

Taste is very subjective. When I was a very little kid I used to put keys in my mouth because I liked the taste. Which means that in some other contexts, body odor is not disgusting. Either that, or I was disgusting.

The chemistry of acids in the body activate the metals, but for gold this is impossible. Gold is unaffected, however other metals do produce chemical reactions and this is not the smell of oils or body anything - the smell is unique to the metal, not the actual reactive acid.

wouldn't the "-one" in 1-octen-3-one be pronounced as "own" since its referencing a ketone? I may be wrong, but just thinking because it's pronounced "key-tone" not "keet" "1" right?

Nice, but one question...why hot metal smels? It's very distinctive smell...when you take a pice of iron (I think that only iron is smell)...if you heat the metal to 1500-2000 C (hot, but not glowing)...it will start to smell...a very specific smell

So the metal actually acts as a catalyzer... But while iron has the taste, steel doesn't. And steel is actually a physical mixture which shouldn't change the chemical properties of the iron( right?) and the same reaction should be catalyzed... Why is that?

There's quite a few things that don't weigh up here. Firstly, iron has a recognisable smell that you associate with iron - and blood. If it's only organic compounds with no actual metal content then all metals (e.g. copper-based coins) would smell the same - but they don't. One more point is that metal sublimes (turns from a solid into a vapour). You can see this on old fixtures like pipe clips where there's a dark stream-shaped patch left on light-coloured walls above the metal. If a metal is emitting atoms then presumably these can be inhaled and detected by the olefactory sense.
