    Hello fellow zoners. I have a DYH also she is about 4 and she
    has a sweet/musky smell, Id say. I think her smells is plesant
    but my sister thinks she stinks. I guess you've really gotta be
    an amazoner to appreciate thier scent. Im also careing for my
    cousins Lilac crown amazon. Charlies a 16yo male his scent is
    fairly similar sweet and musky but yet different. I really cant
    descibe the difference and i bet if you werent an amazon owner
    you probably wouldnt be able to tell the difference at all.
