Tough one... are you friends? If so, just straight up... "dude, chew some gum".

If you're not friendly, it could get a little awkward...

This is why you aren't allowed behind my desk. Except for Ellen. But that's under, technically.

nope not friends, we just work together....that's what makes it difficult, but this guy's breath is tart all day, every day.....He reports to me and I know if I come at him straight up, it's gonna probably be a problem with HR......

I usually say something like

"I'd want to know if I were in your situation, so I need to tell you your breath is pretty bad"

HR would get upset if you told someone their breath was poo?

Ask him if he had a poo sandwich for lunch. When he says no, tell him you thought their might be some caught in his teeth.

or

Tell him that he needs to visit a doctor because his farts are coming out the wrong end.

or

Leave a pack of Altoids on his desk.

If it were me, this is what i would do....
Goto Costco, buy a 12 pack of those altoid mini mint tins.
Keep the entire pack hidden in your desk.
Either late in the evening or early in the morning, place a pack on his desk, in a very obvious spot, front and center. Make sure that the safety wrap is still on it, so that he doesnt think someone left it behind.
Then just wait it out a week or so, if he doesn't take a hint, just place another unopened pack on his desk....if he doesnt get it, repeat over and over until its no longer a problem. But be spontanous about it, mix up days and times you leave it. Hell you should have about 12 tries.
I like this idea because not only will it solve a problem, but it will allow you to have tour own little secret and would be very entertaining over the timespan while you do this.

...think about ut this way, if you come to your desk one tuesday morning, and there is an unopened pack of altoids sitting on your desk, your first thouht is sweet!, but then over time, as it becomes commonmoat people would get a hint!

Whatever you do, keep us posted!

I would just point and say, "There. Breath is stinking."
