You could get that white cream that coroner's put under their noses so they can tolerate the stench of the dead bodies........you could wear a nose plug around the office.......you could invest in a respirator.....and when the co-worker asks why you have any of those things you can say "look, I know that people are supposedly "immune" to their own body odors, but you, YOU are a cloud of filthy stench that needs an acid bath".......nice enough???

I think it is the job of the office manager, they can take the employee in the office and explain the personal hygiene policy of the company with all the good reasons why.

Best to pass him a note. Most discreet that way.
