WHIFF: Why We Smell and Why It Matters
In a readable voice similar to The Science of Kissing by Sheril Kirshenbaum, WHIFF explores the origins, purposes, and cultural perceptions of human body odor from the somber (T-MAU, a baffling medical condition causing persistent body odor despite good hygiene) to the sophomoric (do you really need to ask?) Sprinkled throughout are factoids like the “love ball” of Renaissance Europe, why June became a popular month for weddings, and why an A-list actress never wears deodorant.
Inquisitive humans have a timeless love/hate relationship with “grossology” — they just don’t admit it! More importantly, WHIFF’s cross-genre appeal fosters cultural education and social tolerance.
Americans spend more money annually than any other nation on products to prevent, mask, and remove body odor.
Anybody wonder why?
