The original formula for BEVA 371 calls for a combination of
cyclohexanone resin (Ketone-N, Larapol K-80 or similar) and some
ethylene vinyl acetate resins (Elvax or similar) along with a few
other additives. Polycyclohexanones have a strong distinctive odor
which to me smells vaguely minty, even in dried films. This is
probably what you are smelling.
