A list of the volatile organic compounds found in strawberries has about two dozen chemicals on it. Examples are methyl butyrate, octyl acetate, hexanol, etc.
Since these chemicals are volatile, they are always evaporating a little bit, and you smell them in the air. In different kinds of strawberries, the amounts change a little bit. The smells we can sense (in strawberries and everything else) are the result of complex mixtures of volatiles, like this one.
