Destroy sense of smell?

My character needs his sense of smell destroyed or seriously damaged. Permanently would be prefered, but if he eventually recovers that would be sufficent. It needs to be a one-hit deal and the faster and dirtier the better.

He is in a modern, Western country with resources the average guy would have. No medical labs, but he can get to a hardware store. It must be non-fatal and non-disfiguring, since he's trying to keep it a secret. I've searched "accidents that damage sense of smell", "causes of anosmia", "smell disorder causes", and rearranged those terms appropriately.

Can he snuff up some kind of chemical without killing himself? Jam something up there? Head trauma seems the closest thing I've found but I can't see how he could be sure it would get the desired result. Help.
