    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?

    Maybe he keeps garlic in his armpits in case he needs some.

    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.

    I would say you should post your story on a widely read website, and hope he reads it and gets the hint.

    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.

    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.

    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!!
