I personaly also perceive smells a little differently when I'm approaching and during my period , more "touchy" - but that goes along with my emotions and nerves also , its just natural one's off for those few days. Also if I'm hungry perfumes can especially seem really harsh to my sense of smell not to mention my gut and head which really starts to hurt.
I love the clean sweat smell on a clean (operative word here - CLEAN) man - like after he has worked hard doing something outside, for instance chopping firewood - not to mention I prefer masculine men that don't have softer hands than I ! - that clean sweat smell on a sexy fellow will take me to the Milky Way any time !
I suppose some peoples bodies just run cleaner than others , thus healthier , I work with the public and so am exposed to the good, the bad and the ugly , usually the ones that look like they would stink ,do .
Have you guys noticed that some people that are in fact very clean , good personal hygeine ,ect always seem to look dirty somehow? There's even some celebrities that when I look at their picture & there they are wearing the finest of everything imaginable - and they still look dirty somehow , to me at least - not that I even dislike them or anything .
I do think that along with some of the other posters here that stripping away every bit of our natural scent is not a good thing either - filth is one thing and expecting youself or others to be completely odorless at all times is an other - going way too far into artificiality can be another kind of problem all together.
Emotional well being may also factor in how one would smell - extreme continued anger ,hostility, ect, and / or even medications that interfere with hormones and so on - all this could contribute to a change in body chemistry .
