How much are you adding? I don't even smell it unless I put my nose right up to the bottle. I don't have huge tanks though, just a 10 and 25 gallon... but in a 800 sq ft apartment so I think I would notice if it smelled.

It seems the older the bottle is the smellier it gets. I go through 1 bottle a month now so i rarely get that "rotten egg smell"

You can use SAFE. same as PRIME but in powder form. A fraction of the cost. Worse smell don't double up the dose unless there is a reason to. A water change is to remove ammonia is better than a chemical to nuetralize it
