Sulfur doesn't smell like rotten eggs. Hydrogen sulfide smells like rotten eggs, but sulfur itself doesn't have much of a smell at all.

For you to smell something it has to get to your nose be it gas, liquid droplets or dust, which dissolve in our noses or transmit their smell on some other way eg. methane is a gas and we can smell it, lemon juice is a liquid which we can smell, and powderd sulphur is a solid which we can also smell.

Sulfur can be in the solid phase, liquid phase or gas phase, it depends on the temperature and/or pressure the sulfur in question is present in. A high temperature would result in sulfur being in the gas phase and conversely a lower temperature would be in a solid state. The question itself is pretty simple if you use water as an example. Water freezes at 0 degree Celsius meaning its in the solid phase, between 1-99 water is in the liquid phase and at 100 degree Celsius water boils into the gas phase.
