Given the number of materials and fabric used in the making of most dolls, it would seem to be a most difficult task to present a product which has no scent. As a child, I always enjoyed the scent of a new doll. I am 86+ years old, and whatever scent my dolls had certainly has not affected my well-being. Actually, I love the "new-car smell" when I have a new vehicle . . . I love the scent of a brand-new book . . . and I love the scent of an old book! We are a diverse people with widely different preferences . . . and this makes each of us unique. One of the freedoms we as Americans enjoy, although it appears to be in jeopardy at this time, is freedom of choice. Enjoy that freedom and fight for it!
