my favourite smell

Amniotic fluid.

I love visiting friends in hospital with newborns. The best time is before baby's first bath. The smell is wonderful. It makes me feel that post-birth rush of adrenaline and excitement. I would happily quit my job and drop everything else if I got to look after an amniotic fluid smelling infant.

Just me?


  1. 'Freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head / the songs are in your eyes ...'

    No, but it doesn't mean that you're not both bonkers ;-)

  2. I'm with you on this one Simone, newborns smell fantastic.

  3. I find it simultaneously nice and a bit icky

  4. Ewwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!
