NEW TO TANGO TIP#1: BE WELL GROOMED
“All food or drinks which taint the breath or cause disagreeable eructations should be avoided by persons going into company. Onions emit so disagreeable an odour that no truly polite person will eat them when liable to inflice their fumes upon others.” John S. Marr, ‘How to Behave: A Pocket Manual of Etiquette’ (1867)
"He must not smell of drink or body odour" (James Lovell)..
"Most dear actors, eat no onions nor garlic, for we are to utter sweet breath." - William Shakespeare.
