I do not think that necessarily true. I find Portuguese smell different 
from Spaniards because their olive oil smells different. Latins may 
think that northerners stink cause they eat lard. I am not talking about 
unwashed society but what societies eat and body smells produced because 
of it.  Different parts of Morocco are also another experience as is 
Mexico etc. Once my father had to take the metro in Madrid and came out 
saying all Madrilenos eat garlic. We never let him take the metro again!
