Odorless. What you are smelling is antifreeze, leaking from the heater core in your car.

I DISAGREE: Freon smells a bit like ether and should not be inhaled.

Freon is a gas that does not have a color or smell, however, you should NOT breathe it.

More Information on Freon Below:

(It CAN have an Odor, and is Dangerous in enclosed spaces!)
