When I was a kid I liked the smell of raw gas. I was the Pit Crew for my father's Volvo drag car, and I loved the smell of burning gas mixed with Nitro in the air at the drag strips. By the time I hit 25, though, I hated that smell. Raw, burned, any kind of gas or diesel smell makes me sick.
I too remember gasoline having a "sweeter" smell when I was a kid. Maybe it was the Lead? I kinda' think it was because when I was flying in the 80's and 90's, the aviation gas had some of that sweet smell (100 Octane, 'low Lead').
