Can anyone help?

After a hard drive home I noticed that I could smell burning oil coming through the air vents on drivers side next to door, but when i lifted the bonnet, no such smell was there?!

I am somewhat confussed about this and wondered if anybody else had had the same thing.

...and if you've got fully synthetic oil, it's a bit pungent!
