OK. So I Googled "Stainless Steel Soap" and found a few articles about the phenomenon you are experiencing. Seems like the jury is still out as to how it works, and even if it works. I read several comments made by people who stated that for them the steel soap did not work. As it works for you mumsy, then we have to assume that it does work (at least for you). Now, how? It was agreed that there is some sort of chemical reaction going on between the chemicals causing the malodour (and this soap is supposed to work against onions and garlic too) and the metals in the soap. Stainless Steel is made up of mainly Iron and Chromium; it is the Chromium that protects the Iron from oxidising to form rust. It could be that there is a reaction between the Sulphur and Nitrogen containing molecules and the metals in the soap.
Sorry, that's as much as I could find, although I doubt if this phenomenon would be useful, or indeed useable, in Perfumery.
