Body smell: Body smell is unique to an individual.
Varies in health ans in disease. Such as in Keto-Acidosis, after heavy smoking, alcohol intake, etc.
Body odor does not come from sweat itself because sweat is odorless. Your body produces two types of sweat: the eccrine sweat and apocrine sweat.

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.
Women

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
