    Hey, I just saw a show on this. 
    tThis show claimed it has to do with attractionness to someone.  Like chemistry.  There were men and woman going around the room blindfolded.  (This was a silly show ,but I watched it anyway, it was saturday and nothing else was on.)
         Too make a long story short....The blinfolded people picked people out that smelled good to them and sure enough when the blindfold was off, they were attracted to those people.  They were not model types, just regular looking people.  So I just that old think about chemistry atrracts is true.

        Too further demostrate.. I have tryed to wear perfumes that I loved the smell of on other people and it didn't smell the same on me.

    Other than potentially the food (garlic, spices) someone is eating being a contributing factor?

    The person could have a syndrome called Trimethylaminuria.

    from wiki:
    Trimethylaminuria (TMAU), also known as fish odor syndrome or fish malodor syndrome[1], is a rare metabolic disorder that causes a defect in the normal production of the enzyme Flavin containing monooxygenase 3 (FMO3).[2][3] When FMO3 is not working correctly or if not enough enzyme is produced, the body loses the ability to properly break down trimethylamine (TMA) from precursor compounds in food digestion into trimethylamine oxide (TMAO) through a process called N-oxygenation. Trimethylamine then builds up and is released in the person's sweat, urine, and breath, giving off a strong fishy odor or strong body odor.

    aahhh.....they didn`t use soap. I think people who smell bad can smell themselves.It just doesn`t bother them.We have a guy at work that stinks and has breath that could peel paint.  Nothing you say to him matters, it`s awful. He must smell himself, his  girlfriend must smell him, although she looks no better And this mans` breath is unreal you can see all this nasty stuff caked in his teeth when ever he speaks. You litterally must stand a few feet away from him so as not to gag He`s been told management`s been told no good. For Christmas polyanna he was given a bath and shave kit soap deordorant tooth paste etc. I`ll bet he regifted it.

    It's because these kind of people dont scrub the dirt off their bodies that well. They shower or take a bath but so lazy to clean themselves well. They ought to really take time cleaning themselves and They need to really scrub off . An oatmeal scrub would be advisable. Soap will not be enough for them, in order for them to cure their body odor, aside from scrubbing well, they have to drink more water and look after their way of living and avoid some kind of foods like garlic, spicy foods and too much onions!. I think they also need to do some kind of detoxification because sometimes their smell actually comes from some kind of disease inside. And oh yeah, they ought to scrub their armpit well lol!.sometimes the deodorant that isn't scrubbed off from their body is that which gives them the odor. hahaha..gosh, you just have to tell them straight i think!..

    George Orwell pointed out that westerners always smell of rotten milk to Orientals.

    That is because compared to Orientals we consume so much dairy produce. So diet plays a big part.

    If you only mix with people who smell as bad as you ( 75% of Americans don't have a passport), you'll never notice that you stink.

    Directed to "salvacion" It's not because they dont wash, I shower 2 times a day, use shower gel, scrub hard and sometimes straight after my shower I will put on my deodorant and will still smell, it happens to loads of people so dont go about saying these people are lazy and dont wash, some of them yes but not all of them, think yourself lucky and show some respect!

    It actually depends on what they eat every day. If you are working around with various country of people like vietnam, bangladesh, india or some other country you might think of, you can easily differentiate them by smelling their body odor. If you dont believe just give it a try...

    People have a natural scent. Dependent upon body chemistry, and immune system pathology, some folks smell better to some, and worse to others. There are theories that this is a naturally selective sexual attractant, ensuring that only opposing immune pathologies are attracted, thus producing healthier and more viable offspring. When a person's natural scent is appealing, it usually means that you are very sexually compatible (from a breeding standpoint). When a person's natural odor is offensive, there could even be fertility issues. I am no expert, but this is somewhat proven.
