I was remembering a lingering phenolic reek that took hours to dissipate
even with the windows open, but that was from the Schaffner power inlet
incident so the scorched potting gunk may well have contributed that
particular fragrance :-)

For an evil smell I can recommend a failed selenium rectifier from my
youth. IIRC like over-cooked school cabbage. I think I might have its
successor in the EHT of my homemade oscilloscope...

Well.. this RIFA smelled like Texas BBQ.
Not too bad actually....
