It must have been contaminated (well, old polypores usually are..).

Did you check for amyloid cystidia?

My friends say it smells like oil based paint, or more precisely, fiberglass resin.

But I don’t know how to describe it. It’s somewhat of a chemical-like odor, like a mild musty perfume. Maybe like dried berries in a chinese market.
