I tried to distinguish an odor, but it seemed that when working with almost all of the fungi in my collection that I got really congested and a stuffy nose to wear I could not smell anything so it was very hard for me.

Good notes. Did you check for an odor? It looks a bit like Clitocybe odor which has an anisette-like fragrance.
