hanging basket assortment

I bought a hanging basket and taking it home in the car there was a smell like pet urine. what plant has this smell? can you help me?

Hi, I have no clue on this one. My guess might be plectranthus which is a foliage plant. Check the label on  your hanging basket and see if that's it. Ultimately, it won't smell bad once outside because you brushed the leaves when putting it in your car. When you brush the leaves it releases the fragrance.
