sekken kusai

せっけんくさい (石鹸臭い)
“Stinks of being in a brothel/bathhouse.”  This is a derogatory term rather than an objective description of a person’s odor.  Literally “smells of soap.”  This term may have some origin with the fact that some bathhouses offer services involving ample amounts of soap and
bubbles.
