trans smell

this smell started about 3 days ago.. i changed my transmission fluid out last weekend, and it seemed to help the tranny out a lot. it shifted out smoother and better. it still shifts great, but the smell is embarassing and people that have ridden in my truck in the last couple days have noticed it. ive noticed that you can only smell it with the the windows down, and ive thoroughly check everything underneath.. and there are definitely no leaks. is this normal? maybe i overfilled??? im guessin here...
