When tanning in a sun-parlor (without the use of any lotions or other scented products)your skin gets a very special smell/scent it doesn´t get when tanning in the real sun. (Or maybe it is only hidden behind other smells then?) It smells a bit "clinical and oxidised", difficult to describe, but something must have happened to your skin as the smell is so strong it can be felt through whatever soap or lotion you use afterwards. What does this smell/scent arise from?
