Is that FI? If so, is there a return hose from the fuel pressure regulator to the breather? That would likely indicate a ruptured diaphram.

Another possibility is fuel leaking past the rings when the engine is cold. This is normal to a degree, but it should burn off after 10 mi or so of driving. Lots of short trips without the engine warming up could cause the smell.
