Like body odor. Particularly in the morning at the entrance. Having had the same thought over the months since Apple moved its one million dollar per day location a couple blocks from its previous perch, I decided to investigate. First, a simple Web search reveals that this problem is not exclusive to Apple Santa Monica. At least not historically. Most reports of a stench permeating Apple retail are from the pre-2013 period. In fact, my unscientific, Google -fueled sample revealed that a majority date back to the 2008 to 2012 timeframe.This makes the notion of a noticeable stink at what we can reasonably call one of Apple's most important "flagship" locations all the more newsworthy. You would think if the presence of what even Santa Monica Apple Store employees I spoke with define as B.O. has been a recurring problem elsewhere, management in charge of retail operations would have taken steps to safeguard future stores, particularly the brand's most important ones. If you can hardly smell cigarette smoke in the best Vegas casinos, you shouldn't be able to whiff stale sweat inside one of the world's premier retail outlets.
