Romans bathed pretty regularly, so they probably smelled all right. Probably had some perfumes or deodorant type things, I heard dudes used to smear bruised apricots on their armpits as a type of deodorant type thing, girls probably had something like that too.

Considering women did a lot of the cooking in Rome and the average Roman woman was expected to care for a household, she might have smelled like olive oil and wine.

Now bath in public bathwater which hasn't been changed in weeks and see what you come out smelling like
>>
>>6758302
Sweat and olive oil.
>>
>>6759530
Where did you get that impression? That baths had aqueducts dumping water info then constantly. That’s twice you’ve said this.
>>
>>6759530
They had aqueducts as a major attraction in all their big cities and colonia. They had water pumps and sewage my dude, and the public baths were clean and warm.
>>
>>6758302
Probably like sulfur and whatever other poisonous things they used in their make up.
>>
>>6759574
>>6759628
having aqueducts and plumbing doesn't necessarily mean that bath owners aren't trying to keep their costs down by holding off on cycling out the water. Especially poorer bathhouses.
>>
>>6759546
Ffffffffuck yessss
>>
>>6759703
this is just your speculation now isn't it? they were public bathhouses, as in state owned.
>>

lmao exactly fucking /his/lets man
>>
>>6759726
nah, this is pulling from books that I have read about them. Once you dive into the details it dawns on you that they really weren't all that clean, that Rome at its height was a rather filthy city, and that being state-owned was invariably a keyword for "run by corrupt, corner-cutting assholes"
>>
Like shit
>Women would often prepare their faces with beauty masks prior to applying makeup. One recipe called for the application of sweat from sheep's wool (lanolin) to the face before bedtime,[14] emitting a stench often criticized by men.[15] Other ingredients included juice, seeds, horns, excrement,[16] honey, plants, placenta, marrow, vinegar, bile, animal urine, sulfur, vinegar,[6] eggs, myrrh, incense, frankincense,[17] ground oyster shells,[18] onions with poultry fat, white lead, and barley with vetch.
>>
>>6759737
A rather filthy city compared to 21st century standards, engineering and planning maybe. But that's a rather unfair comparison.
>>
>>6759754
well going back to OPs topic to the average person living in the 21st century a person from Ancient Rome would have smelled like death because the guy from the 21st century is so used to people having showers with clean water and soap every day.

Wrong and liar pilled.

Everyone went to the baths except slaves.

The countryside had running water and cleanliness was a cultural trait of all peoples even those not heavily Romanized.

Some weird Christian thing about being clean being decadent was an aberration. Even savages used to be clean, it’s easy to wash off in a river or lake.

Hispania, a spanish serie about the roman invasion of hispania and the resistance of viriato.

When it came it daily or routine hygiene didn't they cover themselves in oil and use a scuntion or whatever and they scrapped off the dirt

Unsubstantiated heresay but I read a post that soap has been around before Roman times.
And the process of making soap and the science behind why soap gets you clean.
Oil olive oil is also a good oil for your skin moisturizes and it's anti microbial.. heard you can develop allergy to it. Salt can also be used to clean. Bicarbonate and borax was also used to clean. Primitively the precursor to sodium hydroxide is soda ash and that comes from water filtered through ashes. Wood ashes.
Carbon is also used for it's filtration properties. And it cleansing properties I think are just being recovered.
The sun also has uv and microbe killing properties.

so romans bathed, they didn't have soap though. so they were probably still smelly. as for "savages", bathing in a river does also not mean you don't smell, you get rid of most of the dirt

You are meant to fetishize the entire body of a woman, and appreciate the subtleties of her form. Feet however are by far the most complex part geometrically, with the most intricate shapes, very sensitive and connected in the brain to sensuality. Also, since they are usually covered they are naturally erotic (just ask the victorians), especially with their phermononic odor.

It's a musty, damp smell, fleshy and a bit salty
Smells like wet textiles or used leather if she was in her shoes for a long time, and usually you can smell the pheromones. The usual variation is between a sharper, sourish or a rougher, earthy/grainy variation to the above.

Female foot odor is different than male foot odor, female foor odor is rife with "good" sexual pheromones which drives a male wild. If she gets into him and he pauses ever so slighly, she is going to mind control him. Not only will he be servicing her vagina with his mouth and penis if she desires both, those same feet that were supposed to be gross are going to be licked clean. The unwashed female scent can mindcontrol males, but usually not the other way around.

Done right, feet aren't "just" a fetish.

Actually finding feet erogenous is simply a minor "crossed wire" of a sorts in your brain, the parts of your brain that interpret signals from your feet and from your genitalia are physically next to each other, and in some individuals they accidentally connect.
