Sickly, sweet smell permeates the air with no discernible cause. My dog's barking was an alert.

On this morning and day, I was inside, windows closed, air conditioning on. Two of my four dogs were outside in enclosed large back yard.

I then heard my Newfoundland barking, as if something was wrong. As soon as I stepped into my breezeway, which leads to the back yard and the door being open, I was hit with this very strong smell of something sweet and 'heavy' in the air. It was a sickly sweet smell that I have never smelled before in my 60 plus years. When my dog barks like that it means something is of concern so I always check it out.

The smell had no certain origin but all around. I opened the back gate and walked to the wooded area and saw no one. I looked into my neighbors' yards and saw no one. I then looked up into the clear blue sky, thinking maybe it came from above but saw nothing.

I have, in the past, seen a cylinder shaped stationary UFO above my house, and have read that sometimes UFOs have been associated with smells or drifting silk-like substances. Only the smell was there.

My dog stopped barking and the smell went away after maybe ten minutes. I then felt a little dizzy and nauseous but that went away, also.

I'm reporting this in case anyone else has experienced something similar and because it is a bit odd. My dogs who were outside show no effects but I am keeping an eye on them.
