My interior smells like leather since I condition the seats periodically to keep them soft. My mom's 2006 Lexus still smells like "new car" because she never eats in it and keeps it ridiculously clean.
When I bought my car in 2011 I don't think the AC had been used very much (came from up North). The first time I turned it on I got a blast of New Car showroom smell
+1 on condition leather I always get compliments saying they love how my car smells like leather
