I recently noticed that my armpits smell different than they used to.
I know, this is a weird post. But it’s interesting to me, and this is my blog.
For a long time, I always thought my armpits smelled a bit like the sap from an aloe cactus (the real stuff, not the crap you buy in a bottle). And that was fine; after all, they didn’t smell bad, and the odor wasn’t strong.
A few weeks ago, I noticed that my armpits had a new scent. I can still make out the aloe, but a delightful new smell has taken over. I’m not really sure how to describe it other than “more manly” – which makes me feel a bit weird, but there it is.
At first I thought the change had something to do with a new deodorant I was using, but it was giving me a rash (as do nearly all deodorants), so I stopped using it and the smell persisted. I mentioned it to Morah, who suggested that my body chemistry has probably changed a bit, resulting in the new odor. That sounds reasonable enough, although I can’t help but wonder what triggered the change, and if at some point down the line my armpits will take on a new smell. I like this one well enough; I’d hate to have it change for the worse.
I’d like to point out that I don’t sit around all day smelling my armpits. For all I know, the change happened months ago and I didn’t notice until recently. So if you see me on the webcam and I look like I’m smelling my armpits, I’m really not.
Really. You have to believe me.0 People like this. Be the first!
