Just to be clear... I know a lot of people have asked why Wolverine couldn't "smell a Skrull"...

Yes, it's true he's smelled them in the past (Uncanny X-Men 276 for example), but there have been many times when he has not smelled a Skrull.

Most notably during the New Fantastic Four storyline, when a skrull tricked Wolverine's senses, Ghost Rider's mystic senses and Spider-Man's spider-sense.

I think it depends on a variety of factors. It might be scientific (as the Illuminati scene would suggest), where some Skrulls are genetically manipulated to be harder to detect...

Or, it could be a matter of skill. Who knows how much practice shapeshifting takes? Maybe a skilled Skrull can disguise things things like scent...
