Smell of FF on warm engine?

I sprayed a little around some bolts for things like the alternator on my engine (truck). When Fluid Film is warm/hot on an engine, does it have a smell similar to that of antifreeze? I could have sworn I smelled a coolant leak, but I looked around and see no leaks at all...but then I remembered I sprayed that FF and I was wondering if this could be what I'm smelling?

So you don't think there's any possibility that this sweet smell I'm smelling is the FF? To me FF has a sort of sweet smell right out of the can so I was thinking maybe this is what I smell and not a coolant leak.

I've been checking under the truck, in the engine bay and the coolant level. I don't see any indication that there's a coolant leak...unless it's very small and in a spot where I can't actually see it. I'll just keep an eye on it and see what happens.
