This belongs to the section Infundibuliformes (new genus: Infundibulicybe), which includes a whole gang of slightly sweetish-smelling species. Clitocybe gibba is one of them.

This is not C.phyllophila

at least in European sense…phyllophila has a cap that is all white and glossy and the odor is not pleasant but mealy

phyllophila is the only Clitocybe I’ve noticed a distinct scent (Very sweet). If you had better pictures of the stem, that would help. Was the base finely hairy and covered in white down?
