hydraulic fluid smell anyone?

For the last couple of days I've noticed a hydraulic-type smell in the cabin when I'm at a standstill, any one else had this / give me any tips on where its coming from?

I think I have had that same smell...I thought it was antifreeze. Anybody else?

It could be anti-freeze, but it didn't smell as sweet as it normally does!

I had a good look around the pedals, and around the hydraulic fluid reserviour in the front - but not a drip?

Looking at my water guage, it's sat square centre between min and max - will have to keep an eye on it!
