Is it her or you? She has aged nostrils and doesn't notice, or you have a very sensitive nose - in any case said old lady could smell of much, much worse...
Not just old ladies or even just old or ladies and so a masking smell of scent/after shave is prefereable to me!
 
They probably don't realise. Mother in Law can be quite generous when applying smellies to herself, I think it's just an age thing that they're not as sensitive to it as a younger nose.

Is that a joke? Lots of young women drench themselves in strong perfume, and young men do the same with Lynx, sometimes the results are truly overpowering.
I think the sense of smell and taste does lessen as you get older. Just not sure where I read/saw that.
 
Oh Lynx! I had a car full of teenagers once. I could taste the stuff for days.

Didn't say it was confined to the older generations! It certainly does apply to both the MiL over the 20+ years I've known her the aroma around her has increased., and my Mother too come to it. My wife actually commented on it a few days ago. It's an observation, nothing more. We all change with age. Personally I'm looking forward to growing up - my wife is looking forward to it too.

Teenage son is now experimenting with booze - mostly it involves cider and bacardi and coke, there is currently some dark fruit Strongbow in the fridge awaiting the prodigals return. I was the same at his age but think the sweet sugary stuff he likes is vile. Bottled beers for me now and whiskey - which I could never stand in my 20's

My young colleagues are so paranoid folks on public transport can smell them (we work with food and drink) that the staffroom is like a fumigation chamber!
If I tell them it's too much stuff they are dousing themselves with, the reply is "but I like the smell"
