It depends on what brand of WS oils that you use. Some brands smell more than others. Usually the medium is the strongest smell, but it isn't usually as strong as regular oils. I use plain Walnut Oil for my medium and it has very little odor.

I use W&N Artisan, Holbein Duo Aqua and Cobra paints and haven't noticed odors. I also pretty much paint with straight tube colors (no medium). I have occasionally used some of the Artisan mediums and don't get a lot of odor from them, especially with the small amounts I employ.

Walnut oil has worked very well for me. I tried the WSO linseed oil from W/N and that bothered me.
