This one did not have any bad smell.
The overall colors and stature really look remind one of R. violeipes, per Irene’s suggestion. All my Russula sources agree — this is a peculiar species.
Disclaimer: I have never collected, nor inspected R. violeipes, so this opinion is based on comparing picures only and is limited.
Vesna, with Russula please pay attentiton to the odor and taste, just as a beginning… Then there are 10 other things you can do to help the id effort.
For sure these two collection represent different species and ought to be split.D.

Russula laurocerasi is a name that is frequently speculated with, but I can only accept that name after seeing a good spore shot — the spores there are rather strongly and uniquely ornamented.
Lijep ti dan želim!D.
I beleive the first picture shows Russula violeipes.
The second might be R. laurocerasi (grata), but without knowing what the smell is like, it’s hard to tell for sure..
