Do you smell these smells in a certain area or at certain times? Are you around others or by yourself?  If you are by yourself and smelling it- it might be your self that you smell.  This may be a sign of diabetes. The build up of ketones in the body can give you breath like or a general smell like ammonia or nail polish remover.  Your urine may also smell overly fruity or sweet as a symptom.
