But do you have body odor? If not, then I believe this may be a form of harassment. I would talk to your HR department about it.
If you DO have body odor, then there are obviously steps that you can take to correct the issue. I'm not sure taking a bath with bleach is the correct way to deal with this problem nor is using an entire can of deodorant in addition to the above. Go to your doctor and get their advice.

Did the person give a idea of just What the odor smelled like? That could be one clue. For example, something not mentioned yet, do you have cats? I know of a friend of mine no matter how clean She was, the odor of her cat boxes followed her.
You may have just reached a point of "Nervous" odor now too. People are known to create a different odor when they are scared or nervous which isnt very pleasant either.
The bleach just cant be good and may be adding more to the problem then helping it. Perhaps just a nice shower and no chemicals added like the colognes and anti perspraint sprays. You may be having a reaction to them as well.
And last point... yes, see your human resource person if you have that option. See if you can get to the bottom of it from another direction

i have been hauled into the boss's office after somebody complained i had body odor.
i work in a office which has a temperature at least 18 degrees and goes up to 25 during the day.
i bath and wash everyday.
i feel very depressed now and avoid people and even after this i got another got another complaint about odor again.
i don't know what to do and feel very depressed and apprehensive about going to work every day and terrified somebody walking will complain again.
i am at least 12 to 18 foot from the nearest person as i moved desks.
the boss refused to name the complainer.
i am terrified i will lose my job and i have a mortgage and family.
going to work is becoming a ordeal...a kind of torture waiting for the next complaint.
it is so embarrassing.i can hardly sleep nowadays and terrified of going near anyone at work and don't socialize at all.
i have now started bathing with household bleach and put so much anti antiperspirant on that i use a whole can in 3 days... and the wife says she can't come near me because of the smell of bleach and antiperspirant.
i am also afraid i might get cancer from the bleach and antiperspirants and feel very depressed and lonely.
