So why does fake tan smell?

Back In the day older style spray tan and self tan products did smell due to the key Ingredient, the bit that actually gives you that sunless tan (makes you brown) dihydroxeacetone, or DHA as its best know as. It’s this product, the DHA, that actually reacts with the amino acids on your skin and the air and emits the smell that we dislike so much. Unfortunately the deeper the tan the more concentration of DHA used in the product, which usually means the stronger the ‘fake tan smell’.
