So your armpits smell sulfurous? The reason is because the apocrine sweat glands produce amino acids with sulfur molecules inside. When this is broken down by the present skin bacteria, the underarm odor smell like sulfur. This is usually oniony, vegetables, cannabis, soup, garlic, spicy, or in your case, burnt. Best, Chris
