This scent is the smell of the medicine that Dr. Borville dropped on the Wooden Statue that Ilia gave him.[2] He says that because the statue smelled so bad, he put it outside to dry,[2] at which point it was stolen.[3]

Link can use this information and travel to the back of the clinic and push a block out of the way, revealing a greenish stain on the wall which is giving off a green scent. This is the Medicine Scent, which can be learned by Wolf Link. Once he has learned the scent, Wolf Link can follow the scent all the way through Castle Town, where it stops abruptly just before the entrance to Telma's Bar. Louise, who is at the location that the scent stops, explains she stole the statue.[4] However, she unfortunately tells Link that Stalhounds stole it from her,[4] and if he wants the statue he must go to South Hyrule Field and wait until night, at which point the Stalhounds will reveal themselves.[5] Defeating them all will reward Link with the Wooden Statue.
