Does ageing have a smell?

Each one of us has an odorprint, just like a fingerprint, which is our own and unique personal scent

People’s scent is relatively important in human social interaction. Each one of us has an odorprint, just like a fingerprint, which is our own and unique personal scent, a combination of odours from the different parts of the body (e.g., skin, head, armpit, feet) that conform this uniqueness.

Perfumes and personal care products can enhance, mask or alter this. That is the reason why perfumes smell different on each person.

Sebaceous and sweat glands secretions and skin waste are metabolised or oxidised to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) such as 2-nonenal and isovaleric acid.

The cheese smell from the isovaleric acid is produced by the metabolisation of sweat by skin microbiome.

Kareishu is the Japanese name for the 2-nonenal odour, that starts to be noticeable at 30 years old and is the characteristic scent of the elderly.

It is generated by oxidative degradation of ω7 unsaturated fatty acids and also affects epidermal homeostasis and regeneration.

N_llscent™ immediately gets rid of the isovaleric acid smell from feet and armpits and of 2-nonenal from the neck and the belly.
