I know something similar to this has been asked before: Saying something is like/not like something else
I'm just wondering if there's a phrase to express 'like-ness' using senses, for example, "this apple tastes like a banana" or "my socks smells like sweat".
Would you express it as...
このりんごの味はバナナの味のようです。 This apple's taste is like a banana's taste.
靴下の匂いは汗の匂いみたいです。 [My] socks' smell is like the smell of sweat.
I can't help but think this way of expressing it is kind of long-winded...
Thank you very much! :)
