Why do we smell so different?

I swear black and white people smell completely different from each other when they don't wear deodorant. I know we all look the same without our skin on, but this has baffled me since I was a child and switched between living with my mom's side of the family (white) and my dad's side of the family (black) and started noticing it.

  • I've always assumed it was the hair pomades that black folks use---they don't wash their hair as often as whites, so maybe that is what you're smelling?
