I apparently have a mildly unpleasant odor that permeates everything I own, and only one person can smell it. How can I find out what's causing it?

Because it's kind of an embarrassing subject, my friend took 2 years to mention that I almost always have a odor (that isn't B.O.) and that it seeps in to my clothes, so that she can smell it on my clothes/pillow/anything cloth that I own. I've asked other friends and none of them are able to smell anything.
The one friend who can smell this notices that it gets stronger if I skip a shower. She can even faintly smell it right after I get out of the shower. I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea what it could be, or how I can find out what could be causing this. Any help at all is appreciated.
