I describe the skunk smell as a VERY bitter smell. It was not what I had expected when my dog came to me, sprayed. It is NOT gross like a rotten egg, or something that smells more sour like. It is better, and indeed you will never forget the smell of a skunk. It also stays quite long, is very strong, and indeed a very unique smell which I think you will not find on anything else.
Here is more input:
Also in short here are 3 things they smell like is garlic, rotten eggs, burnt rubber.
Try taking a whiff of all three, a fun experiment to do at home.
A skunk died under my apartment, and without knowing what the scent was I described it as an onion microwaved inside of a rubber glove for 20 minutes on high. That is exactly what it smelled like.
Possibly a skunk, because it smells so bad but skunks love the smell of other skunks the more they smell the more they like it.
Ferrets do not smell like skunks and the two are not related as previously thought. Ferrets have a slight musk odor not anything even close to what a skunk smells like. Skunks have a very bad putrid odor
Skunks. That's pretty much what they are.
To keep skunks away, throw out some raw garlic in your yard or where ever you are at. They do like the smell of garlic.

The ecological niche of skunks is their smell, it is a stereotype.
Only Great Horned owls prey on skunks. They do it because owls have no sense of smell whatsoever. By eating the skunk they smell like skunk, the tree they live in smells like skunk, and even their baby will smell like skunk This repels other animals fom bothering them.
skunk smell... haha something like that.
No. A skunks perfume smells really bad. When you got the smell, bath in tomato juice. (This is no joke.)
Yes. Skunks HATE the smell of skunk oil. They try their best not to get it on themselves. Or on other skunks. If there is a chance the wind could blow the oil their way, they might decide not to spray at all. And believe me, they could tell if they got it on themselves. A skunks strongest sense is smell.
No, the spray is what makes the skunk notorious for the smell.
They may come in contact,but the skunks smell would be to much for the wolverine to handle.
Skunk spray, especially up close, is the rankest, most pugnant smell there is. It's like a decaying body mixed with burnt rubber.
Put moth balls around your garbage can. the skunks do not like the smell so they will not go anywhere close to your garbage place a few in the can and in the bag for exrta protection.
Skunks do not smell when the have not sprayed. The odor of a skunk does stay on them for weeks after they have sprayed.
Yes - the scent that skunks emit comes from a gland at the base of the tail - it has nothing to do with the seasons.
Yes, mothballs are known to keep skunks away. This is because skunks are usually deterred by the pungent smell of mothballs.

Skunks reside in areas near nursing mothers. The smell of milk and infants comforts them and makes them feel secure. The sound of an infants cry is like music to a skunk.
