Any way some got into the car (i.e. on the carpet?  Just follow you're nose.  

It's also possible that one of your brake lines has a crack in it (most likely
a rubber hose).  If you jack up each wheel, you can check--it might only leak
when going over bumps, where the hose is allowed to straighten out-  Had this
problem in my car a few months ago.  Solved it with SS lines.
