What exactly are scents and why do we stop smelling them after a while?

Are they particles in the air that start all bunched up and then slowly spread out so thin to the point where it’s undetectable by the average human nose?

yes to all of the above.

But there is an additional effect if we are trapped in a room with a scent, if our nose keeps getting tthe same sents, it just assumes thats normal and stops reporting them. This is why your home probiably doesnt have a smell, but other peoples do.
