"Eliminate Aging Odor"???

Just saw a pop-up ad on the forum page, featuring an attractive, 60-ish couple on a beach plus some bottles of some kind of product. The caption was "Eliminate Aging Odor - Stay Fresh!"

Am I to understand that people over 60 develop some kind of BO that is over and above the regular odor we have all been trained to wash each day and use deodorant against?

(Don't we have enough to worry about with aging as it is?)

If somebody's dumb enough to buy it, then someone else is smart enough to sell it.

I wonder if the product has a rich fresh cent?

A couple years ago, I missed my chance to buy some land in Bulgaria via an add on this website. I went back a few minutes later to look at it, but the ad space had changed to something otherwise worthless, but uninteresting. I missed my chance!

What? You're skeptical of the marketeers?

Yes, when one turns 60 some biological switch is flipped and you need to replace all your soaps, deodorants, toothpaste (if you still have teeth) etc. with this new kind for people over 60. The other kinds are for people under 40 and won't work for you.

If you listen to the ads anyway....

Had the same pop up ad.

Don't need it, in our household ,we wear a string of garlic cloves to ward off zombies, vampires, and old age smell. All natural , eco-friendly and bio-degradable.

If you are lucky enough to smell faintly of money, they get rid of it for you.

I certainly believed growing up old people had a smell to them. Or at least all their houses did. I don't seem to smell it anymore. Im sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I am old now too.

A talented few can, and some more.

I recall telling a story about that. See: Swordmanship.

That as is from the folks who got old, in their youth they sold stuff for that "not so fresh" feeling.
