I think it all really depends on the child.

The age can vary, but usually once they start going through puberty. My oldest is 9 and I'm starting to go up to him and sniff him randomly (at home only) and he thinks I'm just being silly. lol

Depends on the child. My friend's son had to start using it at age 5 because he started smelling and sweating. My step daughter started at age 10 because of this and my 5 year old daughter likes having her own deodorant because it makes her feel bigger lol
