I can't smell roasted seaweed, but my coworker says they stink. What's going on here?

Recently, my workplace started to get a regular shipment of roasted seaweed packs (laver?). I think they're delicious, but my coworker claims they smell bad. He usually sits five feet away from me and complain when I munch on them. Strange thing is, I can't smell them at all, either before tasting them or during. I can definitely taste them, though (and they taste great!)
Is seaweed one of those "papaya" or "asparagus pee" cases (where some people say it smells bad, and others can't smell anything at all)? I haven't found anything about seaweed in particular. What does seaweed (roasted or otherwise) smell like to you?
