I think he/she said they smoke.
I smoke and it's not helping, I swear I have hyper sensitive sense of smell. Always been this way as a child, I could tell who was visiting .
You may have a hyper sensitive sense of smell but most of us become "nose blind" to our own odour, and as smokers we can be safely assured that to
non-smokers we reek disgusting. I tend not to throw stones, if people are happy in their own odour bubble who am I to judge? The homeless people I
know all have rich and distinct odours, and it is something that they use, consciously or otherwise, to control their interactions with "normal"
people. Lots of people find BO very offensive and will respond with fear, which is useful if you live on the streets.
The trick is to use lavender. Quick sniff of lavender oil and the sense of smell is dampened, takes the more unpleasant high end smells out of the
equation, and we can all live and let live.
