Note: 1. Mencium means that someone kiss someone else. In this case, one is the subject while the other is the object. Berciuman means two persons are doing the same thing. Since using lips is the only way to kiss, so “berciuman” means kissing on lips or kissing to show love done by two lovers. It means “mencium” as well as “berciuman” are transitive. 2 tercium is a passive voice (be smelled) However we have active voice with the same meaning, they are “bau” or “berbau” (smell) and they are intransitive.   Ikan itu berbau busuk The fish smells putrid  So, don’t say  “Ikan itu mencium bau busuk”  because it means “The fish smell something putrid” So use “mencium” if you mean “smell” as a transitive verb or “to kiss” Use “berbau” or “bau” if you mean “smell” as an intransitive verb.
