Definitely not! It's rank!

Apparently some people think they don't get it, but I read a study ages ago that said everyone gets it just not everyone can smell it!

No it's definitely a thing-I also had asparagus tonight and I know my wee will smell odd later.

I think everyone's wee smells weird after asparagus but I think that some people can't detect the smell.(And that's why some people think they don't have it)

Yep. Asparagussy wee, not just you!

Yes. And sugar puffs, and coffee.

Asparagus wee is normal. Another one who can't believe quite how quickly you can smell it.

I used to give my baby asparagus, now changing an asparagus wee nappy first thing in the morning is nasty.

I find the smell appears immediately. It's so bad that I don't eat asparagus these days.
