I would have to favor cokeri then.
It is one of the white lepidellas…could be cokeri or Amanita #5 (subcokeri). Cokeri has little to no smell (except for rotting protein smell with age); #5 gets a strong smell of cedar/burnt sugar with age. Otherwise they are grossly very similar. Check Rod’s website for more info on the two:
