You may be familiar with it, that sweet comforting smell of new babies. So why do babies have this particular odor? Well, it has to do with psychology and a little bit of biology.

    In the womb there is a baby Victoria Secret that sells only one scent which
    is “new baby” smell. Conspiracy, you say… Evidence you may ask… Well
    the store is destroyed and discretely hidden among after-birth.

    This is sort of weird but in my experience babies poop and then they smell
    like poop. Apparently none of you have ever changed a fucking diaper. Maybe
    one day you will become adults.

    IMO, babies smell awful, especially when the scent gets into your clothes
    and you take the disgusting fucking odour home with you.
