Previous Owner Colgone Bombed the Interior

Hi Guys,
So I recently took delivery of a used 2011 E90 M3 with the base cloth interior. It appears the previous owner must have cologne bombed the entire car and it is quite overwhelming. The smell is amplified even more so once I turn on the heat or AC system. It literally gives me a headache sitting in the car.

Plan of Action:
-Vacuum interior
-Clean hard surfaces with interior cleaner
-Shampoo seats, carpets and headliner with fabric cleaner
-Replace in cabin air filter
-Spray some sort of odor neutralizer into HVAC system's exterior air intake

Am I missing anything in here with the action plan? Can anyone recommend products to use for the speed cloth seats, carpets and anthracite headliner? Odor neutralizer for the HVAC air intake?

Thanks in advance!
