For millennia, nay, for eons, we all smelled the same. Nobody noticed. Then, one day, some nimrod in a lab somewhere came up with a concoction that made people's armpits smell different. Some marketing executive somewhere got the bright idea of selling the stuff to make money, so he started a campaign to convince everyone everywhere the they smelled bad and that everybody around them was noticing it.
People, being the gullible sheep that they generally are, sniffed their own armpits and said, "Yeah, I do smell," and lined up to buy this new miracle product that addressed a problem that suddenly jumped out of nowhere after eons of human existence.
And that, my friends, is how a consumer market works.
