It sounds like you have a sinus infection.  Phantosmia (phantom smells ) and/or parosmia (distortion of smells) are both associated with sinus infections.  Sometimes the onset of the smells disorder is months after the cold or flu.  

Many sinus infections clear on their own; but if it doesn't clear in another week, you should see your dr.  Be sure to mention the smells.  Many drs are unaware of this problem.  Yours has such a clear link it would benefit other patients for your dr to be made aware of these two conditions.

Oh, if the infection clears but the smells don't, you should see an ENT for treatment.  Usually that is caused by olefactory nerve damage which can heal over time but requires treatment.

Take care.
