What does teen spirit smell like?

I’m serious. We throw around terms like “zeitgeist”, but avoid the obvious application. Every generation of teenager (after 1950 when the term was invented) has a spirit smell. In the fifties and sixties, teen spirit had a heavy odour of love, with strong scents of sex. If we fast forward to the first decade of the 21st century, teen spirit smells of sex to the point that love is just a whiff.
