Bit confused…

I’m not sure it had pores; there were a few fungi in the area that resembled polypores but didn’t have any pores and this may have been one of them.

Smell not distinctive

The smell wasn’t all that distinctive.

if there are pores, it cannot be a Stereum

Stereum species do not have pores on the underside of their fruitbodies. If this one has pores, and the colours are indeed lilac-like, it might be a Trichaptum.
Lilac coloured Stereums are most problably Chondrostereum purpureum – that one has a characteristic smell.
