I recall having read that the manufacturers are scenting the interior in new cars (feromons slowly escaping materials).
(Although it may very well just be the remains of an particular chemical process in the materials used by the car manufacturer).
The sense of smell is a "deep" sense, in the way that it will trigger emotions and memorys long before you're conscious aware of the scent.

If you go to a sainsbury's garage, that has a car vac (on of the new types with coloured vials down the side), this has a 'new car' smell spray (along with others) that pumps out as you hoover your interior. :D
