There used to be an infomercial for a diet gadget based on this principle.
It was a little wafer you held under your nose when you went to eat
something delicious. It pretty much got rid of your appetite.

They showed people eating gooey chocolate chip cookies, creamy cheesecake,
and other delicacies while holding the gadget under their nose. They all
said that one bite was enough.

Strangely, they never actually said what the device smelled like.
