It is normal that leather has a specific smell. Sometimes new leather bag can have a stronger smell. This happens because leather is a natural product. In order to tackle this, you should hang your bag outside and air it. Regularly using your new bag also helps to remove unwanted smell. If this does not help, put folded paper or scented bag inside the bag and change it every few days until unwanted smell disappears.
