I know exactly how you feel. I've been told, but I'd like for someone to tell me WHAT they smell. I can smell myself now whereas before I could not, but I still think they smell something I cannot.
By the way, some people just produce a certain odor. It's hard to explain since it's not bo it's just an odor that some people may not like and others not care. Sometimes, I wonder if I produce this type of odor, except mine is only offensive. It's perhaps diet based and genetic, but I don't know.
