He was the sort of man that relished in the odour of his own dump.

(I work in a building with a lot of men and there is a distinct fragrance seeping out from the men's toilets...it affects my sense of humour)

From a purely grammatic viewpoint, one does not 'relish in' the odour of anything. 'Relished' would work, as would 'went into raptures over'.

'Relished' alone, without the word 'in', is what I meant. In my explanation sentence, I simply used the present tense - relish. Don't worry. You'll get there.

He was the sort of man who counted every grey hair on his chest, cringing when a new one appeared.

He was the sort of man who put on his pants in midair by leaping into them with both feet at the same time.*
