The apocrine sweat that is produced by the glands is thicker and is located mainly near hair follicles, on the groin area, in the armpits and on the scalp. When bacteria contacts with apocrine sweat on the surface of the skin, the release of chemicals produces your body odor.

According to their findings, men's sweat was found to contain high levels of fatty acid, which when mixed with bacteria from the underarm, produces the smell, resembling cheese. ...Read more
