Just tell her, she's not going to get mad at you as long as you're not rude about it. If I was her I would thank you for informing me.
Perhaps there is a medical issue. I would suggest an appt. at the doctor for a check up.
Join a gym or swimming club and go every afternoon. That way at least she'll get a shower!
Body odor is generally an internal condition. Most of the times, showers provide temporary relief. I suffer from TMAU, so I know much about it.
"You kind of need some deodorant" would be mortifying enough for me to run out and buy some ASAP and apply it liberally. I don't know how you lack the ability to smell your own body odor..if I smell even slightly I am repulsed and apply more deodorant.
As a TMAU sufferer, I could not smell my own body odor. She might have a rare genetic condition.
The odds of that are unbelievably minute and not even worth considering.
i know its not easy to say but you can disclose these all things with your another close friend who are close with both
Do what CitizenSmith says. Brilliant
I can imagine how you must feel - but you are going to have to pluck-up the courage to tell her in no un-certain terms that she stinks from here to high heaven. Coming from Canada she must know about deodrants etc, so maybe it is how she was brought-up and feels it is ok - or has a medical problem - either way, you are going to have to teach her new hygiene habits, and if she does not thank you now - she will one day.
sometimes it is best to say nothing at all unless the smell is so bad it makes you dry retch, maybe she has super sensitive skin and cant use a deodorant
i had this problem once! But my coworker's smell was simply some cheap perfume or scented cream that caused me headach! I solved it in a tricky way! Picked the worst drama queen in the place and whispered it to her ear as a secret! :p few days lator, the bad smell was absent!
I do like the "2 for the price of 1" angle. Yep.
I guess you could try to tell her indirectly?
If that doesn't work then there is no other way around, you'll have to tell her in the best diplomatic way possible.
maybe buy her some soap and perfumes as a present for something so it seems more subtle
you'll figure it out when you can't hold your breath any longer.....be nice about it...
