Always pictured Nightelves smelling like Potpourri.
1. Human: Cologne/perfume
2. Gnome: Candy
3. Night elf: Pine/woodsy
4. Draenei: Ozone
5. Dwarf: Earth/metal
6. Worgen: Wet dog smell
7. Pandaren: like a farmer
9.Tauren: like a cow, duh!
10.Undead: Decay, like rotting meat
11.Troll: Intense BO
12.Goblin: BO, but not as intense as a Troll's
13.Blood elf: Patchouli, and way too much of it :/
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Seeing as it's "middle ages" type fantasy, I can guess how all the WoW races smell:
Orcs - Sweat...
Undead - Like a damp cellar
Trolls - Come on I think we all know...
Blood Elves - I imagine overpowering perfumes
Tauren - Mud and sweat
Goblins - Awful... I imagine they'd smell the worst for some reason
Pandaren - Whatever they had for lunch, and beer
"Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in!"
1. Human: campfire/au de toilette
3.Night elf: Forest smell/fresh
4.Draenei: they smell as persian people smelled during the dark ages/wild flowers
5.Dwarf: Beer and roasted pig
6.Worgen: Wet dog smell
7. Pandaren: scented rice/flavoured rice
9.Tauren: as cows do who wash regularly
10.Undead: rotting corpses
12.Goblin: diesel and indeed the inside of a wallet
13.Blood elf: fresh/candy like
I'd like to think that contracting the Worgen curse doesn't automatically mean personal hygiene goes out the window. I imagine that my Worgen character smells like a well groomed lap dog.
Orc - shit
Troll - shit
Tauren - shit
Undead - sh...rotten meat
Blood elf - expensive parfume
Goblin - gunpowder and engine oil
Human - random cologne
Night elf - herbal parfume
Draenei - church scented candles
Gnomes - engine oil
Dwarf - booze
Worgen - dog
Considering that Humans seem to be the most diverse and cosmopolitan with a lot of influences from all Alliance races they would most likely smell according to their social status and profession. A farmer might smell like farmer, a blacksmith like something between coal and tar, a merchant or professional most likely something like homemade fresh soap, a nobleman or more successful trader merchant, mage more likely smell something like Blood Elves, having been exposed to and having traded with High Elves for centuries.
Most Alliance races would most likely share this Human trait, with the exception of the Dreanei, tho they also probably smell very civilized and all. About Worgen you need to keep in mind that they seem to spend most of their time in Human form and they change on choice. So it's unlikely they would smell unpleasant (Dog smell) which would mean they would have a hard time blending into the rest of the Alliance folk.
Of the Horde races we know that the Blood Elves have expressed that they don't really like the scents of their allies, especially not the smell of the Undead. The Goblins probably exhibit the same social stratification as the Humans.
In the novel cycle of hatred by Keith R. A. DeCandido, an orc in it describes how he enjoys being able to wash, to clean his tusks, seeing how when he was a prisoner in the internment camps, he lived in his own filth, and never wanted to go back there. So the assumption that orcs don't bath is just an immature assumption.
1. Human: Some form of cologne or perfume. Cuz men like Old Spice.
2.Gnome: Some sort of combination of rustic steel and oil. Females might have a faint smell like cherries.
3.Night elf: That weird foresty smell of a mix of live and dead leaves and rain water
4.Draenei: The inside of a church or temple, with incense and scented candles.
5.Dwarf: Beer and chips. Cuz if you're gonna be Scottish, you'd might as well go the whole distance.
6.Worgen: Dogs. Females might smell like a shampooed dog.
7. Pandaren: Beer, the inside of a Chinese restaurant, and manly kung fu sweat.
8.Orc: Manly fighting sweat and a faint smell of makeshift soap.
9.Tauren: A faint smell of fresh cut grass and groomed cow hair.
10.Undead: The fetid arse of a maggot-infested camel.
11.Troll: Bob Marley springs to mind...
12.Goblin: Rustic steel, gunpowder, and singed hair where their eyebrows used to be before the "accident"
13.Blood elf: Females would smell like lavender perfume. Males would smell like every single cologne you can find, choked alongside copious amounts of hair spray---Because They're Worth It.
Humans - sewage, due to their open sewage system in stormwind. Why they don't have Cholera is anyones guess.
Night elves - Bark and flowers
Gnomes - Car exhaust
Dwarves - Beer breath and crisps
Draenei - New age shop smell with a hint of inscent
Worgen - Wet dog or musk
Pandas - Chinese inscent or earth from farming
Orcs - Body odor with a hint of charred metal
Tauren - Combination of wet fur and grass
Forsaken - Rotting meat
Blood elves - perfumes or cinders depending on there use of magic
Trolls - Bad B.O and breath, with a scent of marijuana masking it
Goblins - Corrosive oil or factory chemicals
Nearly all races on azeroth would have halitosis due to there not being any dentists or tooth paste, so their teeth would be bad.
It is also a coastal city so that is where the sewage would end up in.
Real life cities with canal systems Delft, Birmingham, Fort Lauderdale, Bruges, St. Petersburg, Amsterdam, Venice... I wonder why they haven't all died of cholera...
All of them would smell like sweat and mold. When was the last time your character washed or changed his clothes?
I've never even seen a bar of soap in this game.
1. Human: Simple cologne/perfume
2. Gnome: Fuel
3. Night Elf: Moss or grass
4. Draenei: Harsh incense
5. Dwarf: Beer and bread
6. Worgen: Dogs
7. Pandaren: A simpler incense, like patchouli or rose
8. Orc: Sweat or blood
9. Tauren: A cattle ranch
10. Undead: Mold
11. Troll: Pungent herbs
12. Goblin: Smoke
13. Blood Elf: If arcane magic has a smell...

Plenty of alternatives to toothpaste.
And Humans = sewage, nah have you ever been in a capital without it being coastal or having a river running through it?.
Off the top of my head i can mention 0 european capitals without a river running through them.
