Recognized by sight: growth in grass and general appearance fit, and I see no purple hues (an argument against L. nuda)

I know that Clitocybe nuda can fade, but I don’t recall seeing any purpleish tones if that helps. I also can’t remark on the scent, sorry.

Perhaps Clitocybe brunneocephala or C. olesonii which seem to differ on smell. Brunneocephala smelling pleasant and fragrant, olesonii smells pungent or unpleasant (According to Mushrooms Demystified), I have only found the former though.
