    ...well I read it in the Toryboygraph so it therefore must be true....I was going to post this in Old n' Bold but being stoned to death with Werther's Originals is no way to go ...

    Age can be detected by smell, study finds - Telegraph

    That'll be fear.....I expect Tom Daley smells of chlorine ,mostly ?

    Hmmm, looking at the age brackets in the study and using finest Vulcan logic ..er..surely people between the ages of 55 and 75 have no discernible scent?

  6. No comment on their flavour?
     
  7. I was brought up to believe that oldies smelt of boiled cabbage, piss and mints, or was it mothballs!?, anyway my grandies always smelt of sweat, tobacco and stale booze.
     
  8. From the age of 70 onwards they smell of piss and mothballs

  9. When I catch the bus, there is always one oldie who has a slight hint of piss.
     
  10. The sheltered accommodation I deliver to has a different whiff at each door, including Urine, cabbage, gin, fish, lavender water and some rank perfume that pensioners seem to think smells nice, but just makes everyone else gag for breath!
    Honestly I try and hold my breath all the way round the fourty flats!
     
  11. I worked for 2 weeks in Boots' in the '70s. When I was stocking the shelves I came across something called 'Feminine Dusting Powder'.

    I asked the manager what it was, he said it stops old ladies smelling like old ladies.

    My Gran wasn't amused when I bought her some for her birthday.

  12. It looks like it too Mukker! Judging by some of the horrors that have opened the door!!!
     
  13. I shared a lift with a young lady this morning.She smelt very bad.
     
  14. Who's age are you judging that Lady as being young by?
     
  15. Sounds (or smells) a bit like walking round a Regional Forces HQ, then.
