: Smelly Paint

I used to live in a terrible quality apartment and we were sure there was mold in it, and though I’ve since moved out there’s a moldy smell coming from my paints that I recognize from the apartment, however I haven’t seen any growth on my paints yet.

Could I just remedy with... pErFuMe??? Should I scent my palette with satchels or something? Would essential oils be bad for my paints?

It’s really not a problem until I get my nose right into it, however I had only caught a whiff of it in passing yesterday. That was the first time I even noticed an odor, so I mean I’ve gone a while not being bothered by it. I can let things be.
