Default Funny burning type smell in my Honda?

I have a 2012 Accord Coupe LX-S 2.4L manual transmission and sometimes I smell a sweet and weird smell that dissipates but seems to be coming from the front wheels I noticed the drivers side.. Could this be brake odor or clutch smell? I did a little spirited driving and smelt it more but sometimes I smell it during normal city driving.. It isn't much should I be concered? I don't beat on it

A sweet smell is coolant. You've probably got a leak somewhere. Check your antifreeze level, radiator hoses, heater hoses, etc.

Check your radiator, heater core, and hoses. A sweet smell will be coolant and antifreeze leaking and burning
