from somewhat a fictitious perpective also consider this:
they analyzed it and found out it is not toxic right? because they just analyzed the thin air.
the smell could be caused by your senses, or body, and could not actually be existent in the air. it happens and it is possible. for example in case
of mouth cancer, the patient smells an odour like fresh cut grass when s/he wakes up. and in this case this smell is not sourced from outside but
sourced from the inside, the mouth of the mouth cancer diagnosed patient.
so say there is something in the city water or some other thing which everbody uses daily, which could cause some mysterious medical condition which
would cause the person to smell some specific odour, (but in reality caused by that medical condition). everone naturally would think the odour is in
the air, and analyse the air and get clean results or non-toxic results while the cause of the issue is somewhere else which no-one will suspect
because it is by law if you smell something in open air, the odour is in the air.
ok maybe not, but it is possible, and I hope it is not a mass medical condition, it is very interesting nevertheless.
