desperation=nervous. Nervous people sweat, perspire or glow. The perspiration is broken down by bacteria that stinks. "The stink of desperation"

A wine connoisseur or your family dog might be able to distinguish between the "stink of desperation", the "stink of fear" or the plain old gym stink. The rest of us without such smart noses must simply identify the stink of sweat and extrapolate from the setting and the behavior of the sweater which type of sweat we are smelling.
