There are two possible answers to why your ear wax smells. One possibility is that you have an ear infection. However, if you know this is not true, than it smells simply because you sweat in your ears and sweat smells.

Ones ear wax smells because the bateria has got into it. Nothing to worry. You better consult an ENT and he will give a medicine which should be mixed with water and poured into ones ear. there will be a bubbling sound and one wont have smell hence forth.
