    ^Agreeeeed. I've been taking mine out in the shower lately and it helps a lot. Gives them time to breathe without jewelry too. I used to have the Naked Oil stuff from BAF and it smelled so great! My lobes never smell anymore but they did at smaller sizes and that always hid the smell.
    I'm Lindsay.
    Piercings:
    Ears: Right conch, left conch, left double helix, 1/2" lobes.
    Other: Both nostrils, septum, VCH, navel
    RIP: Left eyebrow, right double tragus
    7 tattoos!

    I have 6mm now and they never smelled (although I always used wood tunnels, never used titanium or whatsoever).
    I'm going soon for 10mm using Stainless Steel tunnels and let's see if it smells. People say it does but as it never smelled to me, I don't know if it will - or if I'll notice it.

    Mine used to smell a little when it was at a smaller size, but over say 10mm i've never noticed it, especially since I switched to wood plugs.I've found that septum funk can be waaaay worse than any ear lobe smell
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Im at 6mm and have never noticed a smell *has a quick check*. I dont own any metal ear jewellery though (quite bizarre now i think of it). I wear glass/stone/wood/silicone so that probably helps a lot.
    The gratuitous mod list: 4 x lobe (16g), 2x lobe (2g - goal size reached), 2x nipple, 3x navel, labret, 2x tragus, left nostril, tongue. No tattoos yet!

    I've been taking mine out every day or two and cleaning it with the normal antibacterial hand soap we have by the sink or normal shower gel.
    'cos I'm not stretching, the skin itself has healed so it doesn't react at all to any soap.
    Keeps my ears smelling like vanilla

    - Inner Conch (Left)

    Thats what I was thinking, especially considering the last comment, "I'm going soon for 10mm using Stainless Steel tunnels" - sounds ominous
