You may have a leaking heater core or bacteria buildup in the A/C evaporator. The heater core tends to have a "sweet" smell, so I would focus on the A/C. Start by replacing the cabin air filter, if the smell is still there, then take it to an A/C shop that has a machine that will disinfect the A/C evaporator system.
