Smelling heavy smell like hot olive oil occasionally. Related to taking vitamin pill?

Hi I keep smelling a funny smell which I thought originally was related to a new olive oil we re cooking with, but I keep smelling it even at work etc. I can t explain the smell but it s quite a heavy smell almost like hot olive oil (hence my first thought) and nobody else can smell it. It s not all the time, just on occasions. I have also recently started taking a new vitamin pill (for hair, skin and nails ) one a day, could it be related? Any idea? thanks

The smell could be because of the impression in mind of that smell.
It happens if we smell something different not had before then the brain keeps the memory of the smell and you feel it.
If its too much you could use normal saline nasal sprays so that itwill just give a wash in nose and the feeling and the nerve stimulation changes
In doubt do reply
