I don't associate names or numbers with smells or tastes.
However, I have perfect pitch, and hearing a certain instrument playing in a certain key makes me think of being in a different place.

For example:
*I think of being in a garden centre on a sunny day when I hear a guitar playing a tune in G major, but a field in beginning twilight when the guitar plays something in D# minor.
*I think of a cloudy, rainy day in the town when I hear a song in C minor.
*Hearing a soft synth pad play a song in F# major makes me think of the night sky.
*When I hear any song in G minor, I immediately imagine being at the swimming baths.

Is this synaesthesia?

I'm sailing across Spectrum Sea, in my little boat.
The waters of the port were choppy. After I set off, there was a long, massive storm.
Years later, however, the sea calmed. I'm still on tranquil sea, but I'll never reach the Neurotypical Beach.

Synaesthesia: the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.

I can't say that I have ever shat on my own doorstep.

Woof Woof! Cheep Cheep!
