i'm a very clean person as far as hygiene goes. shower twice a day, brush my teeth twice a day, load up on deodorant in the summer, wash my clothes after wearing them, etc... but some teachers around me briefly hold their first finger right underneath their noses for a second or two when they are around me. it might be to wipe the sweat off between their nose and lip which i have seen people do with hand towels. and it is hot in the teachers room even with the air on. but is their a distinct white person smell i'm unaware of?
i don't mean to be mean but indians have always smelled a little bad to me in america. so do us whiteys smell bad in japan?
