"Venus193, I would say that just because some people don't want to smell garlic does not mean they have issues with or look down on people who enjoy it. It is a strong smell and there is a difference between eating it and smelling it in the air/on a person's clothes."
I agree, Sharnita. I love garlic, but I hate having to smell like garlic and I hate that my apartment smells of garlic after I'm done cooking. The same can be said of any food, really - I hate smelling like food, as I think that's just a generally unpleasant smell (when I'm not in the midst of cooking/baking, of course!). And I'm sure everyone has a food smell they loathe, but I'd hate to think there are people in our society who say things like "you know, people who love hot fudge sundaes really get on my nerves" or "anyone who likes homemade biscuits is inferior." When you put it like that, doesn't it just sound all the more ridiculous?
