The winter usually is not too bad for as far as ridership BO. Not this winter. For some reason this past week my nose was subjected to some pungent body odor. Has it been too cold inside their homes to shower or do laundry? Last winter in NYC it was way colder but I do not recall such strong BO. I can excuse BO more during the summer because even if one bathes as soon as one goes outside one perspires and all the good hygiene in the world does not always prevent bad BO.
I don't like floral perfume either. I think its kind of equal to bad BO. I beseech of you fellow subway riders please shower in the winter, please do your laundry. It will help us all have a more peaceful MTA experience.
