I would suspect that sewer gases are getting in through the sink.  The normal way to prevent that is to have a trap under the sink.  The bottom of the trap stays filled with water which prevents gases from coming back up.  Does you sink have a trap?

If it does have a trap AND it's a sink you don't use very often, the water in the trap can evaporate over a period of weeks or months.  Just run the water for a few seconds to refill the trap.
