This is a very interesting topic. It's uniquely hard to talk about face-to-face, for the reasons you mention. If someone denies smelling anything on me AND I believe they'd be too shy / polite / whatever to say anything, it would be hard to know.

It sounds like this is taking a cost in the quality of your life. I feel for you. I wish I had something to offer. I am wondering out loud here: What would be different if the odor were confirmed by someone? If they said, "YOU STINK!" What then?

Little kids can often be straightforward about stuff like this. Are there any little tykes, up to about 4 years old, in your family or social circles that you could ask, in a casual, friendly, lighthearted way? ("Hey sweetie, do you smell something stinky around here?") If a child says no-odor, it's probably no-odor. Of course, the kiddie might say, "You smell icky." That would be painful. Would it also be a kind of relief? It would be something different.
