Posted:you know that old people aroma -

old women are usually a mix of lavender and cat wee

old men of tobacco and wee.

you get the odd ones that dont smell of wee - just lavender and old spice.



sometimes the odd few smell like cookies and pie - freshly baked. mmmmmm!



will I smell when I'm old and decrepid?

answers on a postcard!



go sniff an old dude or dudette and see for yourself!!!

Posted:you have some serious issues....


as for old people smelling, its probably due to their sense of smell not being as good as it used to be. I've found that the old people that come into work dont smell like you say, but of very strong perfume. In smaller quantities the perfume would be nice.

Posted:yes thats right, i do have issues and i like to share them!



the right smell can be comforting, but if you sit on grandaddy's lap and accidentally burst his colostomy bag then its not so nice...

My mum's getting on a bit now - she always smells like violets ubblove



*shouts to marie* GO SMELL MAMMY FOR ME!





I was unfortunate once to sit next to an old dude on the bus who smelled like tuna fish - i got off a few stops before my actual stop and walked that extra mile home!

Posted:No idea where the flowery smell comes from, but i'm guessing their bladders ain't what they used to be, so accidents happen and lingers..hence the smell of wee...

Posted:Ive thought about this question time and time again.

I came upon the conclusion that the smell old people posses is an 'out-dated' smell to people of our age. Do old people know that other old people smell? Not that I have seen.

Old people rarely change their routine and rarely change products they have been using for years and years. A certain routine of when one washes etc and the products we use, create smells. Im suggesting that 'back in the day' everyone smelled like old people, because they used that certain type of soap, and had a certain routine. The previous old people to them smelled of old people because they too had a different routine and life.

As the generations of people grew, they grew to change their routine and change the products they use to clean themselves and their home. Thus the generation smell changed. I find old people who have strayed away from the traditional soaps etc have changed their routine also, like my own grand mother, who does not smell of old people.

Because of my findings, I also suggest that we will one day smell of old people. But the scent will not be the smell of old people we know today, it will be our very own 'old-people' smell. Fortunatley we will not be smelling of piss, but the younger generations will still find our smell just as bad, as their routine and lives will be different to our own.
