"Hot" smell whenever the engine runs

I'm getting the infamous "hot" smell that I can't seem to pinpoint. It happens basically whenever the engine runs. ie.: I can let the car idle up to temp from bone cold and I can smell it if I open the hood and smell it through the vents.

It's not coolant, gas, exhaust, oil or any obvious fluid smell I can nail down. It just smells like hot... something? I can't figure it out. Some people have described it as burning plastic.

Has anyone definitively figured out what this is?
