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.

When bacteria contacts with apocrine sweat on the surface of the skin, the release of chemicals produces your body odor.
