    Hi!

    The Earth has water. It doesn't smell. Does the Moon smell horrible?

    Of course it does, being made of green cheese, as any fule kno.

    However, perhaps any fule do not kno that smell cannot travel in a vacuum, so in the end it, er, doesn't.

    You should get out more. Water often does smell.

    Water does have a smell. Or rain can... I can usually smell it in the air before it starts raining.

    According to Apollo 17 astronaut Harrison Schmitt, the Moon dust tracked into the LEM smelled similar to spent gunpowder.

    Where, then, does the concept of smell come from? Or the organs to detect it? Or the ability to differentiate smells?
    The earth is an inexhaustible treasure-trove of odours, scents, stinks, perfumes, whiffs, wafts, stenches, fragrances, effluvia, redolances, funks, bouquets, tangs, pongs, musks, niffs, aromas, and reeks.
    The moon, OTH, has no air to carry scents nor denizens to appreciate them.

    What about honk or stonk? Does the Moon do either (or any that you listed?)

    I'm reasonably sure it does not honk, but I'm unfamiliar with "stonk". If the moon does that, it does so without my knowledge or approval.
    As previously noted, without air, it would be hard to tell. In space-suits, even more so.

    Moon dust apparently smells like gunpowder, or burned garlic

    But only after you bring it away from the source.
