What would you like to do?
Yes it can and there is nothing worse than smelling garlic off a person. If you take garlic pills for good health (garlic is good for you) then take the odorless ones at your local health food store. We all have garlic in our pasta sauces, etc., so buy those melting mouth strips, chew mint gum, or use a spritz in your mouth if you know you are going to be close to others after eating the garlic. GARLIC CAN LEAK THROUGH YOUR PORES YES! When a Garlic cell is broken by chopping, chewing, or crushing, enzymes stored in the cell trigger the breakdown of several compounds containing sulfur (such as Diallyl Sulfide and Allicin) which are responsible for the sharp taste and strong smell of garlic. It's kind of crazy that we love to eat Garlic cloves considering the compounds found in this plant are believed to have evolved as a defense mechanism deterring animals from ingesting the plant. When eaten in large quantities, garlic may be strongly evident in your sweat and breath the following day. This is because garlic's strong smelling sulfur compounds are metabolized forming allyl methyl sulfide. AMS cannot be digested and is passed into the blood. It is carried to the lungs and the skin where it is excreted. Since digestion takes several hours, and release of AMS several hours more, the effect of eating garlic may be present for a long time. Remedies- Garlic breath/smell is allegedly alleviated by eating fresh parsley. The herb is therefore included in many garlic recipes. However, eating parsley provides only a temporary masking. One way of accelerating the release of AMS from the body is the use of a sauna. If none of this works I would avoid contact with members of the human species for 48 hours, In fact I wouldn't want to put my dog or pet parrot through that pain either.

Asafoetida (asafetida) Ferula assafoetida Fam: Umbelliferae Asafoetida gets its name from the Persian aza, for mastic or resin, and the Latin foetidu…s, for stinking. It is a gum that is from the sap of the roots and stem of the ferula species, a giant fennel that exudes a vile odour. Early records mention that Alexander the Great carried this "stink finger" west in 4 BC. It was used as a spice in ancient Rome, and although not native to India, it has been used in Indian medicine and cookery for ages. It was believed that asafoetida enhanced singers voices. In the days of the Mughal aristocracy, the court singers if Agra and Delhi would eat a spoonful of asafoetida with butter and practice on the banks of the river Yamuna. Spice Description Asafoetida is a hard resinous gum, grayish-white when fresh, darkening with age to yellow, red and eventually brown. It is sold in blocks or pieces as a gum and more frequently as a fine yellow powder, sometimes crystalline or granulated. Bouquet : a pungent smell of rotting onions or sulfur. The smell dissipates with cooking. Flavour : on its own, extremely unpleasant, like concentrated rotten garlic. When cooked, it adds an onion-like flavour.
i have no idea I'm thinking it comes from Italy . Garlic originated in southwestern Siberia. It later migrated to the Mediterranean which is often credited for it but this is… as inaccurate as saying tomatoes are native to Italy.
You smell like garlic when you don't eat it because of a certain chemical in it, but some ways to get it off your hands are to rub your hands in baking soda or rubbing your ha…nds on stainless steel objects.
yes, the smell can come out the bottom of your feet
Garlic is native to southwestern Siberia.
It smells like... garlic?
Yes, others have had the same foul odor come from garlic.
Not as much as it smells from your breath. Despite popular belief, vodka does have a smell, the smell of ethanol.
it means you didn't take a shower
This is a perfectly normal phenomenon.
It smells like garlic.... i hope
You eat garlic as a flavour enhancer with other dishes.
At the top of the garlic there is something quite hairy that if you cut off, it gives out a very strong smell.
there are some very strong spices that may breathe out through your pores, eg: too much garlic and certain types of curry and paprika, but only if this is consumed in large qu…antities.
