Older people just follow older trends/fads when it comes to house smell product “flavor” choices. Every time I have smelled old people smell, it has ended up being some air freshener plugged in nearby. Making this statement is no more ageist than calling 70s music “oldies”.

There is another explanation for why you _no longer_ detect “old person smell” you know…
My tendancy to notice “old person smell” is indirectly related to how often the person bathes.
I never get close enough to smell them since they keep yelling “get off my damn lawn” at me.
I think that this link is relevant:
The only times I remember smelling “old person smell” were when I was visiting rest homes, and that usually was a mixture of disinfectant and regret.
