I worked with it several times a month for nearly twenty years, and still can't forget that cloying sweet/sickly odor, but I was always careful when handling the stuff.
We mostly used it to make an O2 seal in some standards, so it went right from the small mouthed reagent bottle/jug, and 10-15 ml was poured into top off a standard filled volume metric flask.
I would never dream of pouring it into a wide mouthed container/jar, there'd be way too much fume volume emitted upon opening.
Even so, in just those few seconds it took to top off the standards the odor was overpoweringly nasty.
