Best Answer

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!)

Freon R134 is a gas used to charge A/C units.

Is it a freon leak if the car smells like rubbing alcohol the first couple of minutes the air conditioner is turned on?

The rubbing alcohol smell can indicate a Freon leak. The smell can also indicate a plugged drain tube. There is natural condensation that needs to drain away from the air conditioning compressor.
