I don't have the slightest idea how I'm gonna tell my friend that she smells without offending her. I need help my friends. I seriously need this one...

Just invite your friend out for dinner or some drinks, pop to the topic occasionally and let him know what you think. Good luck, hope it works for your friend.

You just can simply talk to her in a very nice way that you can start by saying to her that "I don't have any intention of telling this to you but I care about you & our friendship then you can tell her frankly what stinks. Just give it a try I am sure you can do it. Anyway your intention in telling her is for their own good.

Hello happy. Thanks for sharing what you think. :). I'll customize my "dialogue" to fit her attitude but considering the thought that you have shared. :)

If you really are her friend, tell her straight. If she is open-minded she will understand and realize you are just trying to help her. Don't waste your time finding the right time or the right way to approach and tell her the problem since the right time is now and the proper way is to tell her straight to the face. By doing this you are actually helping her a lot. She may feel hurt at first but at least you have done you part as a good friend..

Hey Jay, this friend is sort of really sensitive. And I'm trying to come up with a some sort of dialogue that will work on her. And I agree, she'll be hurt the first time she hears about it, but I'll just think that she will be thankful later. I can wait when that time would be. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Just sort of mention, in casual conversation, about some new bath product that you tried and really liked. Or some great new body spray that smells great. If that don't get the point across, the best way to handle the situation is to just bluntly, privately, tell your friend of your concerns of the odor.

hello theone. thanks for dropping by. i'll keep that in mind. my other concern is, she might not just get the idea that the perfume is already a context clue. :D
