This is common and in most field guides. See Roody Mushrooms of WV & the Central Appalachians pg.377.

It is very aromatic in a pleasant way. Let one dry in your car for the full effect.

What reference did you use to come to this ID?
I don’t doubt your ID, I’m just curious because I’ve never heard of this one before.
