Sicklingly sweet odor cause?

So I'm moved into an older house, with a new installation of a walk in closet in my bedroom. I'm getting a sicklingly offensive sweet like smell, coming from the closet. I don't know what it is. If it's the exposed fiber glass insulation, newer paint, a leakage in the baseboard heaters (there's no sign of a leak), or if there's something dead upstairs beyond the walls. It's causing minor throat irritation. I current have the close doors open and have my window open for air cicrulation and ventilation . Any ideas what it could be and what I could do?? Landlord doesn't seem concerned to even cover up the fiber glass...
