That vintage liner smell...

Hello all--
Not sure if it's polyester or nylon or rayon, but the lining from a vintage Sears leather jacket exudes that slightly burned or smoky smell characteristic of certain synthetic fabrics. (And how does one describe a smell?). I had the jacket dry-cleaned, and it took the scent down a notch, but it's still there. I don't think it's an odiferous previous wearer as the jacket is in pristine condition; I think it's just that type of fabric. It's not primo quality, but I don't feel right about hacking out its innards.
Any suggestions?
Thank you all.
Dan
