      no @eoin, tis very different. in my generalised experience what they do is attempt cover it up with slathers of false tan & some expensive smelly stuf (usually Poison or similar) which leads to a different aroma altogether….less on the urea spectrum more sickly sweet heading for polybond type of smell.

      passing by Booterstown neutralises both of them during summertime however due to natural algae apparently

    Ah here, grow up missus – sweat is better out than in and it’s let free on public transport in every part of the world, by men and women whether they’ve changed their clothes or not.

        Ah now Bin, that’s a generalisation; I know lads who are impeccable about their twice-daily showers and fresh clothes and women who couldn’t give a fiddlers.

    Oh yes, men’s shirts are smelly, “but this bra is hand-wash only, it’s such a pain, best wear it for another two weeks anyway.”

    Don’t think we don’t know.

      What are you doing sniffing women’s bras, Old Boy? I had thought you more refined than that.

    Yeah OK Sue, but if I smell your hair on the DART last March and tell you strawberry isn’t the best choice the Garda go mental. Double standards all over the place SMH.

    Men (and women) who wear the same shirt 2 days in a row need to question their hygiene levels.

      Possibly. But they may simply ‘stayed over’ in a ‘friend’s’ house after work, the dirty divils.

      Hall’s Pictorial Weekly had a line about the extravagance of some members of the Eurovisionpean Parliament who “change their shirt every other day.”

          White people smell like milk or cheese to Asian people; or at least, that’s what is sometimes claimed.

            I recall an English person telling me they hated visiting their local shop because the Pakistani owners always smelled of curry. ‘Cooking it?’ I asked, ‘No’ they answered, ‘It emerges from their pores’.

            Charming.

      Phero-moans more like!
      People used to complain about garlic smells before they learned how good a food it is for our health.

    You know how on the tiwtter the gerruls on there occasionally have these “no makeup” initiatives where they all put on neutral makeup and pretend there’s none there at all to promote

    something

    I think we could do with a real life version of that for bodily smells but without the duplicity, let’s all get used to what everyone else smells like without deodorant

    I think it could only enrich society of mankind, we have strayed far from the scents of our forefathers

    1. Janet, I ate my avatar

      only if they eat non processed food like our ancestors, you smell like what you eat, eat crap, smell like crap

        I smell only great after a big feed of spuds with salty bacon and cabbage with a bit of mustard.

    Pretty sure the issue is with the operator. The trams have decent air conditioning but sometimes the driver needs to be reminded. This was on the green line obviously because on the red, they would just bang on the door then shout.

    Direct is good.

    Folks who stink just generally stink. It’s simple. Some people just aren’t clean. I’ve been in restaurants, cinemas, libraries, classrooms, hospitals, dentists and people who actually STINK have come and gone and seemed perfectly fine with it. I don;t buy the whole “they don;t realise they stink”. They do, they just don’t give a crap. It’s usually men. I can’t recall when last I smelt BO off a woman. I don’t think I ever have actually. I’m a man by the way and generally men stink.

    I’m more concerned about the people who don’t brush their teeth and insist on breathing through their mouth instead of their nose. I actually got up and moved seat when a woman and her friend who’s conversation not only nearly burst my eardrums, also nearly knocked me out with the nauseating smell from her unclean mouth. Also women putting on a tonne of body spray is only creating a different problem. A plume of different artificial smells each so different from the next. As someone with a sensitive nose this usually makes me sneeze. I’m not even going to start on the people who smell like ashtrays.
