The way you structured the sentence made it seem as if it was a nostalgic recall of the past so by adding the hyphen, you potentially add tension which can sprawl into other ideas and methods. Alternatively, you can simply layer the feelings of emotion into your words by using more periods, commas and semicolons (and hyphens!).
Q: The scent of death I was able to smell when passing by the den where the monsters live. soa natural?
A: You have the word order wrong, it should be, "I was able to smell the scent of death when passing by the den where monsters live." or, as a more natural statement, "I was able to smell the scent of death when I passed by the monster's den."
Either one is right. :)
Q: I remember the scent of chlorine and the warm air around the hot tub. I saw about 20 people around me, and they all seemed to be enjoying themselves, just relaxing.

A: It’s very good! I would just suggest that if this is for formal or academic writing, you should write out all numbers less than 21. So 20=twenty and 5=five. Also, “little 2 year old cousin” should be changed to “two-year-old little cousin”. Great job overall!
