Fenugreek Maple Syrup stink!!!
Guys I am in PCT and I can not begin to tell you how bad I stink like Maple Syrup from Fenugreek. At first it was just my girl telling me I smelled like Maple Syrup which I thought was funny. Then I have started to smell myself. It is pretty strong. I guess it could smell worse. I actually thought my girl might like the smell but that was not the case. Anyway I just thought this was funny since I am only taking 2g per day.

I had the same thing, I thought it smelled kinda nice
My g/f didn't complain and I didn't get comments from others so... I'm keeping it part of my PCTs

I was funny she didn't really complain but I was like "don't you like it?Mapel syrup smells good..." and she was like, "well it not bad....." I thought it would be goo but Iguess if she smelled like frien chicken or some of the other fatty food I crave I guess it wouldn't be a good thing....

My wife just laughs at me because she says that since I take so many herbs that it's only natural that I begin to smell like a plant. lol

It's pretty bad........ especially when I had to take a leak. There is nothing quite like the smell of urine maple syrup. My wife was always looking around trying to figure out where the smell was coming from and seemed to take a general disliking to the scent. She was always asking me if I made pancakes and sniffing around. It was kind of funny. I tried it once and really didn't notice anything other than the smell so I don't use it. Some people love it though.

Ive taken upto 3grams a day and never noticed it myself... must be annoying!

Not to be too personal, but you may very well detect its effect on women as well (hint - the effect is not urine-based).

Haven't noticed it in the urine yet. Can't wait for that fragrant aroma when I go to take a piss...

I got it pretty bad when I would sweat. It may be that those who sweat more notice the smell more.

Yes you are right my girlfriend was using it a little while ago and I noticed what you are talking about. I kinda liked it but then again I love maple syurp.

I dont get it, I used fenugreek for about 3-4 weeks on my PCT and didnt notice anything from it. I started taking about 1800mg for week 1, 2400mg for week 2, and 3000mg for week 3 and into week 4. I didnt notice anything at all from it, didnt make me smell like a giant pancake, didnt effect libido, nothing. Am I just not sensitive to this herb or what??

i am one of the "non-responders" to the fenugreek as well. i have been knocking down copius quantities fresh powder before bed. havn't felt anything. the wife did say she kind of liked the "pecan" scent...

Well I decided to buy a different brand of fenugreek to try it one more time. It was really cheap so I just bought another bottle and will be running it alone, not in PCT, and without any PH's or anything. The only thing Im taking right now is a light ECA dosage regimin, protien, and CEE. I'll keep you updated.

lol.... it's funny but its true. The first day I started using it, my girlfriend came home and woke me up with kiss. She accused me of eating something with brown sugar or maple syrup... At the time I'm like wtf?

I began smelling it in my 2nd week. I could smell it in my arm pits when I was at work. I sweat a lot at work, so all the guys were laughing.. The wife has yet to smell it...
10-08-2005, 11:31 AM
Well it's officially getting worse. My farts now smell like maple syrup, and My pee like a nice warm plate of pancakes.. Pretty freaking funny if you ask me.

Well I got my new fenugreek in the mail today. I opened the bottle and it really smells like maple syrup. I got Natures Way this time around. Im not sure what kind I got last time, but it was just the standard stuff they have at the Vitamin shop and it didnt smell like anything, maybe it was a bum batch or something, I dont know. Anyways, we'll see what happens this week.
