Earthy - earthy smells are things like wet soil, some sands, rotting
forest litter, etc.

Metallic - I know that copper coins (or at least American coinage) can
have this distinct smell. You could break it further into smells like

Sharp - acidic things would give this smell sense

Acrid - bitter smelling

Smoky - from organic matter

musty/moldy - the smell of mold and mildew

Rotten - This might be broken into rotting plant matter and rotting flesh

Sulfuric - possible

Just a few ideas :)
