Is a possibility, but the length of the stem, incurved margin(even in maturity) seems to steer me away from saponaceum which has a free upturned margin at maturity usually.

The smell was non descript and strange- like drying paint, or play do.

I looked up more on T.saponaceum and suppose it could be a variant form, as there are many for the species. I may scope some spores and post for further revelation into what this could be.

Thanks again Christian :)

Any chance it’s a Tricholoma

like T. saponaceum?
It’s hard to tell, but I think I can see some pink in the stipe base.
