No, Seriously… My Job REALLY Stinks!


Armpit sniffers work for deodorant companies. They may spend their days in a hot room sniffing up to 60 armpits an hour to determine the effectiveness of deodorant in controlling sweaty smells and then write up reports on the effectiveness of the different deodorants involved. The work requires both a good sense of smell and a willingness to smell someone else’s sweaty body. Salaries range from $19,000 to $52,000 a year, varying with experience and seniority.
Hardly enough, if you ask us.
