Polyester clothing smells like BO if you don’t wash it after every wearing. What’s bad is, it might not have an odor when you get dressed in the morning but as your body heat warms it it starts to smell. I learned this from experience. One day at work, in an air conditioned office, I started smelling something funky and finally realized it was the blouse I was wearing.

Also, people who eat a lot of curry, smell like curry.

This subject stinks! HA! Made a joke!

The only things of mine that don't get washed after 1 day of use are bedsheets and pants. Everything else gets washed, including the body that wears them.

They might have a fatty liver, sluggish digestion, or reflux which causes post nasal drip.. I can brush my teeth and my tongue will have a smell within 3 hours. I think most of these things are actually stress related as a root cause, however.

This is a different odor than people who don't floss, which to me has a very distinct odor. The odor in question is more "musty" smelling than just breath odor and can come from within.

There's one more odor... people who's rear end starts to perspire.. no matter how clean it might be, it seems you can never get it clean enough when a sweat gets worked up.

Yes it does. A good explanation:

Eat some and find out. It's not a life-altering problem and as they say, "this too shall pass."

I knew a girl who gag at the smell of Suavitel fabric softener. She can smell it on anybody using it and it makes her literally gag.

As a very smelly person, I will just say this, it is just awareness and doing your best to keep the
aroma down to a reasonable level. The people you "notice" are just like me......fellow "strong odored" people, they just do not keep on top of it.

Smells are often the result of food that people eat and as noted a few times above it can be clothes.

If food smells good when you sniff it (fruits, rice, e.g.,) people often will smell better or less bad if they have BO, for example.

Clothes are can cause smells (for better or worse). I use freshner when washing b/c I live in a hot sub-tropical environment.
