    Their bodes exuded

    Please, would you take a look at these sentences and correct my grammatical mistakes:

    1. Their bodies exuded sweat, the smell of which mixed with their subtle deodorants and the scent of wild flowers.
    2. He was a well-groomed man who always behaved like a gentleman.

    In 1. above, you need to show that it's the various smells which are mixing. Different wild flowers each have different scents.
    2. Looks fine to me. Some people would insert a comma after "man".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
