Strong smell of Diesel

I've been getting a strong smell of Diesel out side the car .
When I took the engine cover and acoustic pad of there is a large build up of black carbon /gunk around number one injector .
Could it be the seal at the base of the injector?
It doesn't seem to be leaking at the moment and performance is OK .
