Frogs can smell in two ways. They can detect all sorts of different aromas and scents in the atmosphere but they also have a very distinctive odour of their own judging by the way dogs react to them. It seems that male and female frogs have different odours which are used as a recognition signal, particularly during the breeding season. The common name for the Jervis Bay Tree Frog, for instance, is the  curry frog because it smells like dried curry powder.
