Question need help - fuel smell in cabin and engine bay

ok so the other day after a cold start (with maybe 45 seconds of warm-up time), i rev'd my car maybe a little too ethusiastically for somebody who wanted to hear it and after that i could smell gasoline coming through the vents... i opened the hood and it seems the smell is mostly coming from the passenger side. It still drives just fine but i get that smell whenever i'm sitting still.

is it possible that somehow I created a leak in the FPR or the injectors or feed lines or something?

what specifically should I suspect? does anybody have the page from the manual that tells the check procedure for such a symptom?

I had this problem on my WRX. The rubber hoses on the fuel rails tend to seep when it is very cold. The dealer took care of it for me. Subaru is aware of the problem and will fix it for you under warranty.
