Default 08+ WRX Transmission Fluid Smell After Driving

I noticed the other day when I parked my car (11 WRX) in the garage I noticed a strong odor of what I believe is manual transmission fluid coming from the car. I was stuck in stop and go traffic for over an hour that day so I was thinking that might have something to do with it. I drove my car again today and when I pulled it into my garage I noticed the same smell again. I checked my transmission fluid level and checked everything else and everything seems fine. I don't see any oil splashes around my engine bay either or on the floor so I'm pretty confused. The car drives and shifts fine and besides the smell it seems fine.

Does anyone have any tips on what is going on?
