Unhappy Some general questions from a potential owner!

Hey guys! I am new here and doing my reasearch before I get my own hedgie. It won't be for some time before I get one, but I like to learn lots ahead of time before I get a pet

One of my...well, my boyfriend's concernes, is the smell.
I have owned a variety of pets. Ferrets included. Before I got my ferrets, I researched and while I knew they could smell, I was reassured by a number of people that with proper cleaning and food they would not have a strong odour...which was beyond false. This did not go over well with my boyfriend who is very sensitive to scent. I would appreciate HONEST information about hedgies I currently have a dwarf hamster who has a very mild smell and is not of a concern to the boyfriend. I just want to know how a hedgie might compare, smell-wise. I am really good about keeping cages clean, so it is mostly just the general odour I am concerned about.

Any other resources you all think I might want to read would be great as well! I'm sure I will have lots of questions.
