Men’s sense of smell just stinks I N case you haven’t noticed, there is something magical in the air, and I’m not talking about mosquitoes the size of canned hams. It is either the intoxicating aroma of yet another moody Manitoba summer drawing to a close, or the stupefying stench emanating from the spoiled Chinese food leftovers that have been sitting at the back of my fridge for the last two months. I personally can’t tell the difference between the two. There is a legitimate scientific reason for this inability to sense scents — I am a ( bad word) guy. For the record, I started pondering this divisive gender issue the other day when I stumbled on a fascinating online article from Prevention , the healthy lifestyles magazine. Entitled Five Things Your Body Odour Says About You , it pointed out all humans, even those with excellent personal hygiene, emit a unique odour. “ Even when no one thinks you smell, you smell,” the article chirped. “ And scientists who study volatile organic compounds ( VOCs) have long known that every person has a distinct odour, just like they have distinct fingerprints. Some scientists call it your ‘ odourprint.’ ” The thrust of this article was that each person’s “ odourprint” can influence their health and relationships in five important ways: 1) It could make you a mosquito magnet; 2) It could find you a love connection; 3) It tattles when you’re stressed; 4) It makes you friends ( or loses them); 5) It speaks volumes about your health. This smells like the truth to me, but it is absolutely meaningless when it comes to a certain segment of modern society, which, for the purposes of today’s column, we will call “ men.” As much as I hate making sweeping generalizations, it is a scientific fact women have been blessed by nature with an uncanny ability to detect scent particles at the sub- atomic level. You will know this is true if you have seen that annoying TV commercial for the air- freshening product Febreze wherein a mother enters her teenage son’s room, is rendered unconscious by the horrific stench, then forces the kid at gunpoint to spray everything with Febreze before two of his friends of the extreme opposite sex stop by for a visit. At my house, I begin almost every day by wandering over to my wife, who is a woman, holding my hands in the air and asking: “ Honey, does this golf shirt smell OK?” Which will cause my wife to inhale deeply, scrunch her face in deep concentration, then either give me the thumbs- up or order me to immediately incinerate the offending article of clothing. It is a different story with guys of my gender. The portions of the brain and the nasal cavity responsible for detecting powerful aromas are destroyed very early in our life cycle. This is partly because many young guys spend a great deal of time with their heads buried inside old gym or hockey bags, which give off stench molecules so overpowering they are visible to the naked eye and should be illegal under the Geneva Convention. The end result is young guys end up oblivious to their own body odour, not to mention the eye- watering aroma emanating from their friends. If anything, guys take great personal pride in the fact they smell like an old sweat sock buried under a chicken coop on a really hot day. If, for instance, a group of typical teenage guys were standing outside a slaughterhouse, the workers would be the first ones to complain about the stench coming from outside. Any remaining ability I personally had to detect even the most potent fragrance was burned away after spending dozens of years as the owner of basset hounds, the only animal known to give off an aroma more pungent than a teenage boy. There is also the fact guys, in their formative years, will go exceedingly long stretches of time without bathing, until it reaches the point where their mother threatens to take them to the zoo to meet their “ real parents.” Eventually, thanks to powerful hormones, guys reach a point where it dawns on them there are worse things in life than willingly standing next to a person of the opposite sex. Scientists refer to this as the “ Cologne Stage” of a man’s development, because it is the point he realizes if he wants to be irresistible to women, he will have to drench his entire body in gallons of cologne. When we were young, my buddies and I would slather our bodies with something called Jovan Musk Oil, which had the following two effects: 1) It made us invisible to women because we were cloaked in a dense fog of musk molecules; and 2) It caused women to run away because exposure to a cloud of musk is like having bear repellent sprayed directly into your eyes. So, yes, the scientists are correct — bad body odour says a lot about you. It says you are a guy and should change your shirt before leaving the house. At least that’s what my wife tells me. doug. speirs@ freepress. mb. ca In the Doug House Doug Speirs One too many gym bags has a lot to do with it A_ 02_ Aug- 29- 15_ FP_ 01. indd A2 8/ 28/ 15 9: 36: 22 PM
