The Takeaway: Older Men And Women Smell Better

A new study found people 75 to 90 years old have a recognizable <strong>smell</strong> that can't be explained fully by diet, environment or anything else. It was distinctive enough that younger participants could identify an older person by body odor alone–but not unpleasant. In fact, older men and women were rated as less intense and less unpleasant smelling than other age groups.
