In brief: Dietary, metabolic

Urine is the water soluble output of excess and waste chemicals produced by your body.
Urine may have an odor depending upon your basic metabolism, your inherited functions and your diet. For instance there is an inherited metabolism of sulfur compounds in fresh asparagus which causes a strong a characteristic odor in the urine.
