1 He has a nose of wax
2 As plain as the nose on your face
3 Does your nose eek at that?
4 He can't tell where to turn his nose
5 He that has a great nose thinks everybody is speaking of it
6 His nose will abide no jests
7 If your nose itches, you will kiss a fool
8 To hold one's nose to the grindstone
9 To put one's nose out of joint
10 You make his nose warp
