That special baby smell

I know this may sound a little odd but I wonder if anyone else has experienced this. We all know the way a baby smells, it's hormonal etc so people feel protective and caring for them and at some point in toodlerhood they loose the distinctive "baby smell". Well my youngest son is five and he still smells like a baby, everyone notices even his 6 year old sister, everyone even other children just want to help him and hug him all the time (to be honest this drives him nuts).
He is very, very small for his age (some two year olds are bigger than him), he's been tested for a few things but Docs think he's fine and will either just catch up one day or be like me (I'm only 5Ft). I wonder if it's natures way of still helping to protect him, it's just odd because I have never noticed this with any other child.

Lissa, I find that my four year old still kind of smells like a baby as well. He is also kind of small in comparison to other children between 3 and 5 or so. I'm not sure when they lose the smell though.
