I don’t have personal experience with this species.

Bas (1969) says, “…indistinct or subraphanoid smell and taste.”

Neville and Poumarat (2004) say, “…odeur subnulle ou faible de scléroderme puis désagréable; saveur insignificante.”

From these sources, it would appear that odor may change with age. Microscopy will be the most accurate means of identification.

Very best,

Smell is unpleasant: urine.
I cannot find any reference to the smell of that specie though.

You might check Amanita strobiliformis…
