Hi Louise, it is something that I have encoutered before. The cause is because of a certain bacterial species (probably a Gram-negative bacterium), cleaving off compounds from the underarm sweat, causing that specific odour. I would suggest trying to stop your regular deodorant for a month, or trying an antiperspirant for a while to imply a sudden change in the underarm microbiome. It is possible that this species gets eliminated after these experiments. Best, Chris
