Air freshener smell when heat is on

Since day one I had this air freshener smell in my WK2 when heat was on. Initially I didn't mind but then decided I don't quite like it.

Where do you think the source of it can be? I imagine it was dealer who sprayed something in air duct (or possibly it was done at Jeep factory). I recently removed cabin air filter and it wasn't the source of the smell (to be exact - I smelled it, didn't detect anything and put it back - haven't tried to drive without it)

Re: Air freshener smell when heat is on

Could be they deodorized the HVAC system or the dealer did something to make it smell better. There have been a few people (Myself included) that when we turned our vent on got a very unpleasent smell. The solution was to deodorize the system, the dealers have a process they use to do this. Now mine really didn't smell like anything when they were done though. Could be the dealer may have noticed this and did something else or possibly you might want to check the cabin filter? Maybe they sprayed it with something.
