OEM leather smell

just wondering... does bmw or any other aftermarket manufacturer have some sort of car freshener that makes the interior smell like new leather again?
or suggest me car fresheners that smells like what an M3 should smell like.

thanks a lot guys

people say my car smells brand new still.. its been 2.5 years. i dont notice it, maybe theyre talking about the leather smell in general. but id love to have a cleaner/ product that will give that smell again.

+ 1 for Zaino and another

I love my Zaino to clean and nourish, but the scent lasts only a week or so for me and you don't need to clean leather that often. (I do it monthly at most (quarterly usually))

I found and love Chemical Guys Leather scent:

$7 for 16 oz bottle with sprayer...a little spritz on the carpet with the weekly wash works very well, it is very concentrated.

Gliptone leather care is the best and it smells fantastic, like you've stepped into a new Rolls Royce.
