Just find a fragrance that they like in addition to you, and spray/etc. in the car. I carry a small Fabreeze pump sprayer in my SRX, although my use is to cover up my cigarette smell so the wife will stop bit*hin' ! Works great!

Odd -- most people like that smell!

It does go away over time. Probably if you air out the car when it's sitting in the garage, it'll leave more quickly.

I'd say it was about 4-6 months before my car no longer smelled "new".

If they are young kids, the smells they generate from food, drink, and/or bodily functions will soon replace the leather smell. If they are older kids, tough, they are moving out soon.

The more the car is closed up the longer it lasts.
My car will be 2 years old in March and the leather(did you know Cadillac adds a perfume to it, and calls it nuance leather?) still has a smell that is a cross between a saddle and a cigarette.

I use Lexol cleaner then conditioner every 3-4 months and it still has the same nuance smell it had when I bough it.

I would just buy some kind of spray or freshner and hope for the best.
