In brief: It is possible
It is possible that a particular smell could cause a "heart flutter" in an individual.
Heart flutter refers to a palpitation. If a person becomes anxious because of a certain smell, this could cause a flutter. Palpitations are associated with atrial flutter, whick can be cause by a large number of causes(drugs, illicit drugs, caffeine) as well as diseases(abnormalities of the heart.
