There was a science-fiction story - I want to say Asimov, but can't be certain - where the main character commented that every world he visited smelled terrible at first, compared to shipboard air, but that after a few days they all smelled fine.
I think it was one of the Foundation Stories, where they were searching the Spacer worlds...
