My surgical nurse niece says they get fit tested for n95 masks every year. They have a hood over your masked head and introduce an odorant. I f you don't smell anything fit is ok.
Fit is very important and bad fit is a major reason n95 masks are not recommended for the general public. Looking at pictures you see many medical personnel with badly fitted masks, actual visible gaps between mask and face.
