I know a guy who smells like garlic. And I mean he ALWAYS smells like garlic. I would imagine that it’s pretty close to
impossible that he eats garlic at every meal, and I’m pretty sure the smell isn’t emanating from his mouth, anyway. I literally have to either back up a little when I talk to him or try not to breath too much. It might be some kind of chemical imbalance or perhaps very poor hygiene or a combination of both. He’s a very nice guy and I wonder whether he’s even aware of the problem. Is this something I can bring up tactfully so that he might possibly find a solution? I once worked in an office where there was a fellow who had terrible body odor. My boss didn’t have the heart to say anything, so he asked me (read: MADE me) do it. PS: The guy didn’t speak to me for a very long time. Should I say something or just shut up and mind my own business?June 13, 2014 1:25 am at 1:25 am #1019649popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Maybe he keeps garlic in his armpits in case he needs some.June 13, 2014 1:28 am at 1:28 am #1019650pixelateMember

Seriously, it could be a STOMACH issue. Digestive problems often cause mouth odor. Also, he could have a dental problem, or maybe food is getting caught in crevices and he is not brushing and flossing well enough. And some people eat EVRYTHING with garlic. Go figure.June 13, 2014 3:40 am at 3:40 am #1019653☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I would say you should post your story on a widely read website, and hope he reads it and gets the hint.June 13, 2014 4:27 am at 4:27 am #1019654June 13, 2014 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #1019655To be or not to beMember
offer him candy stam. and give him a mint. NOT as a “hey dude your breath smells” just as a nice “here have some candy . it shouldn’t be that expensive.June 13, 2014 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #1019656Yashi and PemberMember
The smell isn’t coming from his mouth, so unless he tucks the candies under his armpits, I think we’re back to square one.June 15, 2014 1:37 am at 1:37 am #1019657gatesheadguyMember
Give me his number and I will give him a call and he will not have a clue who it is?!???!!June 15, 2014 1:39 am at 1:39 am #1019658gatesheadguyMember

mention (after eating my tuna sandwich) how “I hate tuna breath, or any breath after lunch, and I love chewing gum, eating a mint candy after meals. I never knew it made such a difference!!”
some time after that put a company bottle of mouthwash in bathroom and start a conversation about that how its really nice the company did that!!
