The smell is not in the engine bay or inside the car. Only on the rear where the tips are .
The sweet smell I'm talking about smells like radiator fluid. Cup your hand by the exhaust and just pull a little bit of exhaust to your face its not going to hurt you unless you stand there for 20mins smelling the exhaust. If you have a sweet smell/taste its your head gasket.

You should probably take your car into a shop or if you know how to do a compression test and have someone to help you do that I would do that.

Sense the smoke is always there.

If you can get a vid I could probably tell you right away if it the head gasket just pm and let this thread be for headers.
