Or orange scent? I had a... catalogue? don't remember, with a summery picture, where you could scratch and it smelt like orange peel. What does under arms smell like anyway? I can't smell anything on mine right now, but when I think about it they tend to smell nice after a day in the sun, a bit like sand, salt, toast and potato peel mixed.

reiterating this conversation, I start to wonder if I got it wrong, and underarms is another word for armpits? and not the arm under the elbow like I thought... hmhmhm

@StinkyBambi (an expert on armpit-sniffing) can correct me if I'm wrong, but the pit of the elbow is the "elbow pit" and the pit of the shoulder is the "underarm" or "armpit".

xactly! that is part of my life philosphy, growing variety, expansion, more perspectives, being what life and existence is about, combined with love and beauty. (but I still wonder what the arm under the elbow is called in english then? I directly translated "underarm" to under arm, and "överarm" to over arm, but that might not be the english terminology? I guess I could google, but the answer here might be more entertaining)

Your elbow pit is properly known in English as your antecubital fossa.

zooming in on the elbow pit again :) But the answer I seeked was also in the linked text, simply forearm, which sounds a bit familiar now that I read it, but I have probably been going around calling it underarm. It was interesting though, how all the muscles connect and now I know the latin word for small ditch!

A fancier name for the forearm is antebrachium, ooh.
