    It's in our human nature to despise a foul smell and love the pleasant scents. Basically, our noses are used to determine only two things - good smell and bad smell. Oftentimes, there are subcategories in each of those two kinds of smell. When we talk about vaginal odor, one should take note that there's this normal odor of vagina and there's something else. The latter can be a fishy smell from the vagina and may be accompanied by pain, irritation and some discharge.
