How to say "tastes/smells like"
Is there a direct translation for "this smells like that?". The best I can find in the dictionary is "味同嚼蜡“ (tastes as if one is chewing wax, meaning tasteless). Can I use this pattern for everything? Can you use it for metaphors?
This plum tastes like my childhood
这个李子有童年的味道。 Or 这个李子味同我的同年。
This cake tastes like vanilla
Your room smells like socks
How about “the smell of..."
e.g. Our living room is filled with the smell of wet washing
