It is possible that something got spilled onto the exhaust manifold and is burning off. If the smell doesn't go away with a bit of time make sure there is not an oil leak or other fluid leak underhood. Another possibility is that an animal had climbed into the engine compartment and had made some sort of a mess - I have seen it happen before and critters can make a mess sometimes.
