    Re: He has a strong smell.

    'redolent of/with
    literary smelling strongly of something'── quoted from http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/redolent
    But it may be not commonly used as it is literary.

    Just baby smell if you like it or baby odour if you don't.

    Re: He has a strong smell.

    Are you suggesting that the baby smells like baby formula/baby milk?
