    to smell это глагол, поэтому понюхать

    ?

    1)нюхать - to smell=to nose
    2)чувствовать запах, обонять, чуять - to smell=to feel a smell
    3)чувствовать, чуять - to smell=to feel (anything)

    Обратите внимание что глагол модифицируется либо прилагательным (в случае "пахнуть"), либо причастием (в случае "нюхать").

    She smells nice. (She sheds a nice aroma)
    She smells nicely. (She smells nicely with her nose)

    My understanding is that (по)нюхать is pretty close to English "to sniff" or "to take a whiff of" -- in other words, to inhale deeply through the nose (on purpose) in order to smell something, such as a flower. But (по)чувствовать запах is more like "to notice a smell" (perhaps accidentally). So, you could say:

    Я понюхал свою рубашку и почувствовал запах табака.
    "I sniffed my shirt and smelled the scent of tobacco."

    Or:

    Я понюхал свою рубашку -- она пахла табаком.
    "I sniffed my shirt -- it smelled of tobacco."

    Note that "пахнуть + instrumental" means "to smell like such-and-such".

    She smells nice. (She sheds a nice aroma)
    I think this would be От неё приятно пахнет -- i.e., an impersonal construction, literally meaning "From her it smells pleasantly."

    She smells nicely. (She smells nicely with her nose)
    Hmmm, maybe this could be У неё сильное обоняние -- "She has a strong sense of smell"? ("She smells nicely" sounds a bit strange in English -- it's better to say "She smells very well" or "She has an acute sense of smell.")

    P.S. But even though the noun обоняние ("the olfactory sense") can be used with people, my impression is that the verb обонять ("to detect a smell") is nearly always used in reference to non-human creatures.

    E.g., "The shark smells blood in the water", Акула обоняет кровь в воде.

    "Акула обоняет" - не звучит.
    Акула почувствует малейшее присутствие крови на большом расстоянии.

    От неё приятно пахнет -
    Хорошо, а можно сказать и "Она приятно пахнет".

    У неё сильное обоняние -
    Лучше:
    "У неё хорошее обоняние" ,
    "Она хорошо чувствует запахи",
    "У неё хороший нюх" (также в фигуральном смысле)

    Акула обоняет кровь в воде
    "Акула чует запах крови в воде"

    Точно! Чует - самое верное слово для smell.

    I smell the scent of tobacco. Я чую запах табака.

    Normally обоняние is of a formal or scientific style, but is used for humans as well. Verb обонять on the other hand has a flavor (sic!) of something colloquial and informal.

    мне безразличны ...

    What part of the speech is the word "безразличны". Is it an adjective a verb or something else?

    So the sentence: "мне безразличны деньги" must be translated as: "To me money are indifferent"?

    “I’m indifferent to money” sounds better to me. By no means a native Englihs speaker, though. Just a learner of English.

    I'd translated your sentence as "Money mean nothing to me".

    But yet it is the matter of the context. Either you want to say that you have so much money that the sum discussed is too low to pay attention to it. Or you emphasise that money is not the most important thing to you. You have other life values.

    But I am not native too.

    Я изучаю английский язык и поэтому делаю много ошибок. Но я не прошу Вас исправлять их, Вы можете просто ткнуть меня носом в них, или, точнее, пихнуть их мне в глаза. I'm studying English, and that's why I make a lot of mistakes. But I do not ask you to correct them, you may just stick my nose into them or more exactly stick them into my eyes.
