What's In a Smell?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 28, 2012 at 11:26 PM

Whenever I eat either chicken or Pork after about 20 minutes-ish, the smell of both will exude from my pores (those around my nose and cheeks being the worst), as well as kick up the amount of oil I secrete into overdrive??? these are the only foods that have this kind of effect on me, not even garlic no matter the volume.

I???ve asked many times, no one else can smell anything on me which I find hard to believe???so

My first question: Am I the only one that this seems to happen too?

2nd question: What is in these foods that cause such a smelly BP oil factory to break out?

Truth.

One thing I can think of is that the smell you notice comes from the fat of the animal you ate, and sweat contains not only water and salt, but some fats and odorants as well, so perhaps that's where it comes from.

The garlic smell seems to show up on breath, not necessarily skin. Also the coffee I mentioned was after a specific kind of espresso, a regular cup of coffee doesn't do it. If you care about this bit of trivia, it was a "single origin" espresso from Blue Bottle, which is pretty strong stuff, and was repeatable.

I've tried with and without spices, it never matters...and don't get me wrong, this doesn't in any way stop me from eating either of these because, of course, they're two of my favorite meats, I'll pick a whole chicken roasted to perfection over a steak ANY day of the week.

Thanks for the responce Raydawg...but I'm not quite following. Garlic, no matter the volume never effects me, it doesn't come through my pores, I can't smell it on my skin...nothing, that's why I used it as a type of "control" study thinking that by it's reputation, this should over power everything else...and this is raw or cooked garlic, doesn't matter...the chicken pork just seem to run a train on me...

I don't know if you have ever tried kimchi, but there is a thing called "kimchi smell". The smell penetrates the whole body, it is not just coming from your mouth, so brushing your teeth won't work. But smelling like chicken or pork... I don't know - what spices do you use?

I've had the same thing happen with coffee also. There's a trick where if you rub raw garlic on your hand, someone else can smell it on your breath later on.

Yes, it's true, almost whatever you put on your skin gets absorbed into your blood - so be worried about things like deodorant, lotions, soap, mosquito/bug repellent, etc. if you wouldn't eat it, don't put it on your skin either.
