If it wouldn't get me fired, I would confront her about her smell. Instead, I shield my face with my hand and hope to god I don't catch a whiff.

People like that make me sneeze. I would tell your boss that you're allergic, because there's nothing offensive about that. He'll just write a nice polite note or whatever and say that some people's noses are hypersensitive etc etc and for people to please not wear strong fragrances. (Bring some pepper and force yourself to sneeze when she walks in to make things believable.)

So... would throwing up whenever she walks by be too strong a hint?

alienofamerica: falkensmaze: Imagine not knowing you smell bad and that you are unintentionally offending people on a daily basis.

This lady I work with smells. The smell is intense and concentrated.
Her odor is so powerful, it takes over any room she walks through.
Thankfully, it's not a fish smell. Also, I don't work in her office. I just see her around.
This lady just puts on way too much perfume. I swear she must bathe in it or something. This perfume has a peppery aroma.
I'm not sure she realizes how powerful and immensely disgusting she smells.
If it wouldn't get me fired, I would confront her about her smell. Instead, I shield my face with my hand and hope to god I don't catch a whiff.


Is there anyway you can leave a gift bag containing soap or bodywash and some deodorant on her desk without getting caught? I've also worked with people who douse themselves with perfume or scents like patchouli instead of bathing regularly. One woman reeked so bad that several of us lodged a complaint with HR. She wore so much perfume that several of us were getting migraines. HR had a nice little talk with her & she shaped up after that. They also kept quiet about who had complained so there wouldn't be any backlash.

My friend has a friend thats a nurse and she saw this patient that smelled so bad people were avoiding her and she didnt know where it was coming from. They checked her vag and it turns out she had shoved tampons in there during her period but never took them out, leaving them in for about a month. As they were taking them out of her the cotton was black and rotting and she had the most serious bacterial infection the nurse had ever seen. She said the smell was so bad she had to leave the room to throw up.

/Enjoy your dinner!

I absolutely love when guys post "but don't all girls' vaginas smell like fish?" when a story like this is posted. Because not only does it show they're morons, but also that they have had very little luck with the ladies.

A friend that works in the med field said they put rubbing alcohol under their nose to help with the smell. Don't know if this is true or not.

I think you only get that when it comes to the absorbancy, thats why its bad to use the ultra super whatever ones. I could be wrong though.

Kids are so freakin' honest. Thank goodness for them or she might never have figured out what was wrong!

My kindergarteners are always telling me what's wrong with how I look that day. I recently had a really bad cold and about three or four of them commented on how red my nose was...I think one of them even compared me to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, haha.

One of my kids really has no filter and told another student that his mom was fat. He had no idea that it wasn't appropriate to say, he was just telling the truth!

I see you have taught my child. He would just state the obvious in everyone he met for the first time. I think he has outgrown most of that now. Good times.

alienofamerica: This lady I work with smells.

Right with you, but ours isn't perfume: it's plain ol' BO. I think she's one of these "earthy" types that doesn't like chemicals or something.

I think some of the ladies have confronted her about this, because she does come in with way too much perfume on sometimes. Evidently nobody schooled her in the art of matching deodorant, perfume, and lotion scents, and I assume she knows nothing about natural vs. synthetic scents, either. Either way, it's a serious distraction - either she smells like a wet dog or she smells like a chem lab.

/yes, I'm a dude
//yes, I know about these things
///yes, I'm straight
////yes, I know what an appropriate amount of body scent is
//no, I don't use Axe, Old Spice or any of that shiat they sell at grocery stores

I work with trimethylamine, so I am SO getting kick out of these replies. It doesn't just smell of fish, it smells of rotten fish. Luckily, we only need to use it as a standard very rarely, but between times we wrap the top of the bottle with parafilm, stick the bottle in a bigger bottle, put the bigger bottle in a bab, and store it in an exhaust hood. I could not even imagine smelling like this.

Years ago I worked with a girl that had what I called nervous stench disease. Any time she got upset or even the littlest bit nervous her body oder went all to hell and she smelled horrible. No one had the heart to say anything to her because she was such a good worker. Not certain if she had an allergy to scented hygiene products.

Agreed. Alcohol evaporates too quickly. Vicks (or any other aromatic/powerful masking agent) FTW.

I once knew a Lithuanian girl who bathed maybe once a week to once every other week.

Honestly, I don't know how her boyfriend (now fiancee) gets around it. I mean you could smell when she entered the room, and definitely smell when she opened her legs. She was really pretty and all, but she definitely had an "odorous presence" that lingered in the air.

I'm wondering why they can't just supplement her whatever enzyme is faulty. Short half life? Too costly to produce?

I had a friend in SHS with a hereditary disorder that caused his sweat to smell pungent and acrid. Imagine Danny Partridge soaked in toxic waste. I don't think this is the same disease--only 200 cases since the 1970s says the BBC--although choline seems to ring a bell. Like Danny he coped with the infamy of being Ginger by being smart and sarcastic. Not long ago I was doing some genealogy and found he married into, and divorced out of, a very large branch of my family tree, one of the keystone families that every county has.

nuclear_asshat: fark. You'd think of any genetic disorder, this one would have been selectively bred out thousands of years ago.

Could be a knockout mutation that occurs reltively frequently, or maybe it's recessive, and if you have only a single copy it helps you fight off athlete's foot or something, which makes it somewhat selected for.

"incurable fish odor syndrome."
