      Hi! Chris Hadfield, who was commander of the International Space Station, talks about this in interviews sometimes. Here is an interview on youtube where he answers this question that it smells like ‘brimstone’, i think he means a kind of burning metallic type of smell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp1Mgbu4H3o around 2:40
