Today, I started at my new job. My manager, upon meeting me, hugged me and sniffed my neck, then commented that I smelled "natural" and told me how much he loves that. I have to work with this creep until god knows when. FML

The worst part is OP probably needs the money, so it could be a choice between having enough money to eat, have a place to live, etc. and not dealing with that creep. Hopefully she can open a sexual harassment claim against him.

if op files for a claim for sexual harassment she has to make sure she has proof. or if that doesnt work she can just try to avoid the guy and only interact when it involves work!

I'm assuming that you never went through sexual harassment trainings at work. Anything physical that makes someone else uncomfortable can be grounds for a sexual harassment complaint.

Don't quit, either confront him, go to Human Resources, whatever Sexual Harassment department the place has, your managers boss, or another manager.
And if it's a small place and there is nothing, ask a coworker to go with you and speak to him about it. He may no idea he made you feel uncomfortable.

upon meeting a person you're going to have a professional relationship with, you never hug! if someone's fragrance is strong enough, sure I can smell it, but I didn't try to purposely lol

Call me crazy, but the boss might just be really REALLY awkward at first impressions (I know I am). If he doesn't stop being creepy within a month, THEN you should start looking for another job.

I'm creepy to people when they first meet me, but after the second time they meet me, they don't think I'm creepy - just that I say whatever is on my mind, without any bad intentions. I think waiting a month is a bit too long...

That's extremely inappropriate. Maybe report him to some kind of regional manager (anyone higher up) if possible if it continues. Hope it gets better!

It's kinda the thought that the first thing he thought to do (instead of introducing himself or showing her around) is to hug and sniff her. It is just very odd and really upfront

Do not stand for this! Are you serious?! "I have to work with this creep for god knows when"?
Report him to his higher up. You do not have to let yourself lose dignity for some slimeball.
