personal hygiene

Hope everyone is having a great and sexy weekend!

This questions is mainly for the ladies. I had this experience a few times now with different women.

So, I meet a women. We seem to have good chemistry, and we proceed to have amazing sex session. But I am slightly bothered by her body odor and/or bad breath. Personally, I don't think these are big issues and it can be easily mitigated by showering, using deodorants/cologne, mouth rinse etc. before meeting someone. Personally, I always do this. But, due to the odor issue, I do not feel like meeting them a second time, although I feel the sex was great. I don't know if I am over sensitive to smell or something.

Anyways, what I would like to know is the following. Is there a polite and respectful way to make your new partner (someone who you have just met once or twice) know that you are slightly bothered by body odor/breath, and would prefer if they just use some deodorants/mouth wash etc. before dates.

I never figured out how to communicate this effectively and respectfully. Any suggestions/advice are welcome. Does anyone here had similar experience?

....someone told me once the French make washing each other's privates part of foreplay. Don't know if that's true or not, but it's a great idea as you can check for other 'issues' while making your partner fresh and clean.
The bad breath bit is harder. People may not be able to do much about it due to medication or pockets in their throats that catch stuff --or if they have issues with their teeth, like partial plates, bridges, or aging crowns.

FYI--Lume deodorant performs exactly as advertised. GREAT stuff, but don't get the unscented. The unscented has an offputting smell that goes away if you don't overdo it.
