The sense of smell is less important for a human,that's the reason why the sense of smell of a dog was greater than of a human.A dog depends more on sense of smell,and human doesn't depend only on that,that's a reason why our sense of smell was underestimated. What do you think? Read more:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/6183379.stm

i have a keen sense of smell. I can catch smells that others do not. I smell things before others smell them. I think a lot of humans could develop their sense of smell with practice. I know blind people hear better and can smell better. We rely on all our senses and when one is gone the others make up for it. So surely they are capable of more than what we use them

I don't think the sense of smell of human beings is underestimated. God just gave us what we need. If our sense of smell is too sensitive, like those of dogs, we might be able to smell all sorts which we do not at all like even from a distance.
