In brief: See answer

Urine odor is related to volume and concentration of a variety of substances excreted by the kidneys.
The darker and more concentrated the urine, the more likely to have a specific odor based on the type and content of its substances, toxins, and waste products. Infection; certain foods (asparagus), vitamins, supplements, and diseases (diabetes) can all cause a unique odor. Recommend urinalysis.
