Hello and hope you are doing well.

Olfactory hallucinations or Phantosmia can be caused by temporal lobe seizures. Phantosmia most often occurs as a result of a head injury or upper respiratory infection. It can also be caused by, sinusitis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease and stroke. Any infection or blockage in your nose can cause you to smell something that is not there. So, don't worry and discuss these options with your doctor. He may refer you to an ENT specialist if needed.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
