Do we have to smell when we work out?

WE LOVE:

  • Intensive and sweaty sport sessions…
  • …in clothes that smell fresh all along…
  • …without that persistent stink that builds up over time

BUT DID YOU KNOW:

  • Sweaty smells come from the odorous constituents of our sweat…
  • … but also from the bacteria that feeds on the fats from your sweat… sorry!
