Now scientists have learned that that hydrogen sulfide, which produces this odor, can alter consciousness without causing physical harm, by causing a state of suspended animation
When mice breathed the gas, they went into a hibernation- like state. Their activity level fell dramatically, and they moved only when the researchers touched them or shook their cages. After the mice returned to breathing normal air, they quickly returned to normal.

We had a 4th of July party once with all sorts of people in the house and no one but myself and my parents could smell it. While we were gasping for a breath of fresh air everyone else was just fine. So unless certain types of people don't have the proper receptors in their nose to pick up the smell, I'd go with a more 'paranormal' explanation.
