Does a ceil or a seal live in the ocean? Would you store potatoes in a cellar or a seller? Would the temperature be detected by a censer, a censor, a censure, or a sensor? Would a perfume have a pleasant cent, scent, or sent?

cent, scent, sent
A cent is a coin, usually worth one penny.

Assume you mean a US cent coin* - a penny? What's a US penny and why is it called a penny?

Our - (UK) smallest coin is a penny, which is worth one hundredth of a Pound, (but never called a cent)

*The Euro is divided into 100 cents

cellar, seller

In my world a cellar's first meaning is a place for storing wine smile

I've see wine shops named Wine Cellar which I think is a good pun.
