Old Guys - What's That Smell?

Scientists have confirmed that older people do indeed have a smell to them. There is no scientific reasoning at this time as to why they smell but there is apparently a distinct ‘old person’ odor.

The Chemical Senses of Philadelphia created a panel of both men and women who were able to distinguish a specific smell from people 75 or older.

There has been no report as to what the scent exactly smells like.
