If you don't see a cloud behind you I would think an intake gasket on the lower portion isn't sealing or worse a crack in the bottom of the intake. So like Dave says Where? is it getting sucked through a Valvecover(PVC) and draining into the Intake

I have had this same problem in the past.If your carb is old and the throttle shaft is worn excess gas will drip out on shut down and puddle on the manifold, the heat from the engine evaporates it and over time the residue left gets looking like oil, smell it and it will smell like varnish. Just my 2 cents worth.
