Same here!!!
She smells like a stuffed plush animal a kid would have.
Our Doberman used to have a "particular" scent.

Funny, I love the smell of horses to. Like comfort food for the nose.

I always said Sabi smelled like a warm blanket, I don't know how else to describe it.

That's funny, female rats usually smell like an artificial grape flavor, which is kinda like grape koolaid. It reminds me of this grape kids conditioner I used to use. Actually a friend's sister once went around smelling everyones' heads for some reason and she told me mind smelled like rats LOL (because I was using grape conditioner). Male rats supposedly smell like warm tortillas but I've only owned females.

Bianca my GSD liked to lay outside in the grass/dirt so she sometimes smelled not so great, but it wasn't too strong. My Golden Retriever smelled really good, and hardly ever needed a bath. People would sometimes pet or smell her and ask if she'd just had a bath when actually it had been a long time since she'd had one.

I hate when you pet someone else's dog and they leave like a smelly residue on your hands, and when you rub your hands together there's actually a film on them...

Jakesworld Yeah, Jake's feet smell a little like corn chips. I don't know if it's Fritos brand or not. Lol. But there is no corn in his food. I swear out all my GSDs over the years, he's got the softest coat, but a very suttle smell. I've got my face in his fur a lot, so he must smell pretty good. Oh and the horse! That's a whole nother level of wonderful smell!! Sometimes I go out back and just bury my nose in my horses neck. That's my all time favorite smell. I feel so sorry for people who say they can't be around animals cause they're allergic.

brembo Waxed canvas jacket, cordite(gunpowder) and bourbon. I am a happy man with that combo.

Anyway, I just buried my nose in the dogs scruff. Cable smells like clean fur, bit of musk possibly some dust. Allie didn't have a smell to discern, possibly fresh broccoli?

Both are on raw, with the occasional grain free kibble when I'm feeling lazy. Cable has not had a bath in a long time, months and months I think. Allie rolled in something awful few weeks back and got a bath. I hosed Cable off a few days back, he decided that laying in a mudhole was a grand plan.

Wild Wolf I love Hunter's natural scent. I think the amount of time we spend outdoors plus being raw fed makes the way he smells so much better. Not sure why, but his muzzle and neck smell the best. He still kind of has puppy breath, in my opinion. :P

I cannot possibly write about how great my dog smells without sounding weird. Haha.
