      Well the main reason our breath smells is that the bacteria in our mouth are producing smelly substances as they live and grow there. Different bacteria will produce slightly different smelsl so I guess that we all smell slightly different because we all have slightly different bacteria in our mouths.

      that’s my best guess anway 🙂
