Thoughts To Live By…

Archive for the ‘Body Odor’ Category

It may be time to upgrade your deodorant to extra-strength. Scientists have found that women’s B.O. smells like onion or grapefruit (we’ll take “grapefruit,” please). On a grosser note, men’s armpit funk was described as smelling like cheese.

The researchers had men and women either sit in a sauna or ride an exercise bike and then took samples of their sweat. Women’s perspiration contained high amounts of a sulfurous compound that when mixed with armpit bacteria creates a scent similar to an onion. Men, on the other hand, ooze more fatty acids, which combine with armpit enzymes to turn their underarms into mini Stilton (ol) factories.

It is thought that the study’s results can be used to make more distinctly gender-customized deodorants. This is good news, since a team of independent testers thought that lady-sweat smelled worse than man-sweat. Hurry up science, please, we don’t want to smell like an appetizer from a chain restaurant anymore.
