Default How to make a car smell good

I know next to nothing about detailing a car.

When I bought my Tundra a little over a year ago it was clean and smelled good (like a manly good, like nice leather smell, not wimpy strawberry car freshener smell). Now it needs some help to get it to smell good again. First step is to give it a good vacuuming and soap on the carpet, but what can I do to restore that smell that it had a year ago? The PO knew something about detailing cars that I don't, just wondering if anybody in the club knows some of those tricks...

...and I'm not talking about air fresheners, Lysol, Febreze type smells; but I guess I'm having trouble describing the exact smell I'm looking for...it's like leather, but my leather treatment doesn't quite have the smell I'm looking for, and it doesn't last as long. Maybe the guy's cologne just smelled good and lasted a while after I bought it?

...any help?
