I just painted my fireplace mantel and trim with Glidden’s Door & trim Gel-flow-tech high gloss paint. I painted about a week ago and I turned on fireplace last night and after about an hour there was a pretty strong paint odor. Did I use the incorrect paint or is the paint still not cured?

The paint wasn't cured. Brick surfaces can remain colder especially in an area where there is no surrounding insulation, such as a fireplace it would take 3-4 times longer to cure.
