sniff, sniff....was it something I ate?

Okay--obviously garlic and onions will linger on your breath after a meal, but do any of you have other foods that affect the way you smell or taste after eating them? I had a salad with carrot ginger dressing on Wednesday and I swear I can still smell ginger and tahini when I put my nose near my skin and inhale deeply--this is after running at the gym and sweating profusely (apologies to the people around me who had to smell that!), taking three showers and brushing my teeth six times. My friend swears that whenever he eats fried fish he can shower four or five times but he still smells fishy two or three days later--especially in sweatier areas (pits). Are there any foods that make you body odor smell better or worse?
