There can be several reasons, if an oil change has recently been performed some oil may have dripped onto the exhaust pipe but well burn off in a couple of days, if you have an oil leak somewhere it is probably getting onto a hot surface and burning, giving off the smell.

You probably have an oil leak coming from the valve cover, or the rear main seal. This would cause oil to trickle down on to the exhaust manafold or exhaust pipes.

Check the engine, around the valve cover and head to see if any oil is leaking out onto the engine.
