Question Anointing?

Hi guys! I've had my baby for two weeks, as of today! She seems to be settling in very well. I've noticed that during playtime, that she simply loves shoulders and hair. Which is not a problem. However, she also likes to lick my neck. She doesn't do this to anyone else, so I'm kinda confused. It doesn't bother me, so I let her do her thing.

This evening, she was at it again. But this time, she started anointing. With the smell of my neck. I know that it's a normal thing for them to do, so this isn't really a medical question. I'm just wondering what she might find so interesting about my neck and why she did it for the first time tonight, after I've had her for two weeks now. Does anyone else's baby do this? Thanks in advance!

PS- I don't wear perfume or anything, so that's not it.

Maybe it's the shampoo/conditioner you have in your hair and leaves a scent on your neck where your hair falls.

Hmm maybe. But it's right in the front. Like, the section in front of my chin. Who knows? Hedgehogs can be odd sometimes. Thanks!
