What Does Human Sweat Smell Like

Human sweat is composed of water, salt, and various compounds such as ammonia, urea, and lactic acid. The smell of sweat is generally described as pungent, musky, and sometimes sour. This odor can vary depending on factors such as diet, hygiene, and individual body chemistry. Sweat itself is odorless, but the bacteria on the skin break down sweat and produce an odor.
